Canada Soccer Women’s U-17 National EXCEL (NEX) Program has invited 26 players into its second last camp of 2017, as efforts ramp up ahead of a competitive 2018 beginning with the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s U-17 Championship in Nicaragua 19-29 April, which will determine qualification for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 running 13 November to 1 December 2018.
