Gordon pots pair for Canada U-17s in comeback win over Jamaica
(Examiner.com) - Canada came from behind twice yesterday to defeat Jamaica 4-2 in the quarterfinal of the CONCACAF U-17 Championship in Panama.
The triumph books a place at the FIFA U-17 World Cup UAE 2013 for the Canadians.
Andrew Gordon scored a pair of goals while Hanson Boakai and Jordan Hamilton chipped in with a goal each as Canada's U17s mounted a dramatic second-half comeback to salvage its qualifying campaign.
"It is a tremendous feeling and you cannot take these moments for granted," said U-17 head coach Sean Fleming. "The boys were immense in the second half and to qualify for our second-consecutive FIFA U-17 World Cup is a great achievement for this program." >>>
