COLUMBUS, Ohio - Rising senior Danica Wu and freshman Lindsay Agnew of the Ohio State women's soccer team have continued to make strides while representing Canada for their respective national teams. Wu recently was named to the full Canadian Women's national team's roster for a friendly at Germany while Agnew is in camp with the Canadian U-20 national team in preparation for the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
Wu, who made her first appearance for the Canadian national team in a friendly against the United States June 2, was named first team All-Big Ten as a junior in 2012 after garnering second team honors in 2011. The Edmonton, Alberta, native tallied three assists in 12 games after missing the start of the season playing for Canada at the U-20 Women's World Cup and the final six games with a broken leg. In November, Wu was named one of six nominees for Canadian U-20 Player of the Year. The friendly between Canada and Germany is slated for noon ET June 19 and will be played in Paderborn, Germany.
Agnew, who lives in Dublin, Ohio, but was born in Kingston, Ontario, has been a part of the Canadian U-17 pool for the last two years in addition to her time as a member of Ohio Premier and as a four-year letterwinner at Dublin Jerome. She won a silver medal at the 2012 CONCACAF Women's Under-17 Championship in Guatemala, represented Canada at the 2012 U-17 Women's World Cup in Azerbaijan and is one of 22 prospective players in the U-20 camp currently being held in Vancouver.
