Noah James Participates in Joeys Camp

July 2nd, 2015

Emerging Jets player Noah James has been selected by Joeys coach Tony Vidmar for the final training camp ahead of selecting his squad for the AFF U16 Youth Championships in Cambodia.

The camp is currently underway and is being held ahead of the tournament in Phnom Penh which starts at the end of July.

It will be a vital lead-up tournament ahead of the AFC Under-16 Championship qualifiers are held in September.

If the young Aussies progress to the AFC Under-16 tournament in 2016, the top four sides their will progress to the 2017 Under-17 World Cup.

“[This camp] will be all about making final decisions on the squad that we will take to that tournament,” Technical director Peter de Roo said.

“At the same time it will enable us to start working more specifically on our style and philosophy; which we will then build on in Cambodia.

“The AFF U16 Youth Championships will be a perfect tournament to prepare the players for the AFC U16 Qualifiers in September, because it will give the players their first experience of playing international football in Asia and give them a good idea of what they’ll be up against in the qualifiers.”

The Joeys have been drawn in a group with Myanmar, Vietnam and Guam for September’s under-16 AFC championships.
