COLUMBUS, Ohio – Lindsay Agnew and Nichelle Prince, members of the Ohio State women’s soccer team, have hit the road to Denmark with the Canadian U-20 national team in preparation for the 2014 U-20 Women’s World Cup.
The pair is part of a group of 19 players in camp in Copenhagen July 23-Aug. 3. The Canadian group will play three matches while in Denmark: July 29 against professional team Ballerup-Skovlunde and July 31 and Aug. 2 against national teams from Norway and Denmark, respectively.
Agnew, who lives in Dublin, Ohio, but was born in Kingston, Ontario, has been a part of the Canadian U-17 pool for the last two years in addition to her time as a member of Ohio Premier and was a four-year letterwinner at Dublin Jerome. She won a silver medal at the 2012 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship in Guatemala, represented Canada at the 2012 U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan and was part of the Canadian U-20 camp held in Vancouver last month.
Prince played club soccer from 2009-11 for Pickering Soccer Club but also was a member of the Canadian U-17 National Team since 2010. She earned first cap with Canadian Women’s National Team in Four Nation’s Women’s Tournament in China this past January, coming off the bench to score lone goal in Canada’s match against Korea Republic. Prince helped the Canadian U-17 team to the finals of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifier in 2012 and earned the Golden Boot at the 2010 and 2011 club nationals.
Agnew and Prince will both be eligible to play for Canada in the U-20 Women’s World Cup held next summer in Canada. For more info, visit www.CanadaSoccer.com.
