Burnaby’s Emma Regan is gaining a world of experience as one of the youngest members of Canada’s under-20 women’s soccer team.
At 16, Regan is one of the team’s youngest players. Canada fell to 0-2 in its run this week at the FIFA u-20 World Cup in Papua, New Guinea.
They opened the tournament with a 5-0 setback to Spain in a contest played in 30-celsius heat and 60 per cent humidity, then were defeated 3-1 by Nigeria in a game that Canada briefly held a 1-0 lead.
Canada wraps up the group stage round on Sunday against Asian champion Japan.
