Jessie Fleming highlights CanWNT roster for Brazil tournament
John Herdman has shown that he is not shy about giving promising young Canadians a chance in his senior team and that trend continues as his roster for he 2013 Torneio Internacional Cidade de Sao Paolo includes a trio of teenagers including a 15-year-old making her debut.
Those who follow women’s soccer in Canada closely have already been talking about Jessie Fleming for a while now. It was just a matter of finding the right time to introduce her to the rest of the WoSo World. The 15-year-old from London, Ontario is the most talked about Canadian soccer prospect in recent years and was a star of the CONCACAF U-17 Championships where she helped lead Canada to a place in next spring’s World Cup and took home the Golden Boot as the event’s top scorer.
Fleming is also a promising athlete away from the soccer field. She is already a three time OFSAA gold medalist with first place finishes in cross country, 1500m, and 3000m events to her name. Her 1500m time was so impressive that as a 14-year-old she was only 8 seconds off the Canadian junior record (for athletes under 17) and could represent Canada internationally in track as well if she wanted. She is just a pure athlete who is driven to be the best at whatever she does……….
