Canada, Mexico meet again in CONCACAF semifinal4 minute read 3:14 PM CDT
The tournament format has changed this year but there is a strong element of deja vu for Canada at the CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship.
The young Canadians face Mexico on Friday in the semifinal at Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, just as they did in the same venue at the same stage of last year's tournament.
The Canadians lost 1-0 in last year's semifinal before blanking Puerto Rico 2-0 to finish third. Mexico was beaten 2-0 by the United States in the final.
The two finalists and third-place side at the eight-team CONCACAF U-20 tournament qualify for next year's FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Bernardeschi back in TFC fold after benching5 minute read Preview Tuesday, May. 30, 2023
TORONTO - Italian star Federico Bernardeschi is back in the fold after being benched by Toronto FC coach Bob Bradley for Saturday's 2-1 win over visiting D.C. United.
Bradley opted to sit Bernardeschi out in the wake of the Italian's critical comments of Toronto's style of play following a 1-0 loss at Austin FC.
"We had discussions last week. A lot of work went on the inside with the group," Bradley said after training Tuesday. "It was all geared, aimed towards the idea that he would be back with the group this week and that's the case."
Bernardeschi, who leads Toronto in goals (three), shots (34) and shots on goal (14) this season, was back on the training field Tuesday. The club did not make him available to reporters.
