Clarke makes his mark

Richmond’s Caleb Clarke made a further bid to start for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC next season, scoring a goal in each half as Canada’s under-20 national men’s soccer team blanked Costa Rica 2-0 in a friendly Wednesday in San Jose.

The victory wrapped up a 10-day camp in the U.S. and Costa Rica.  The Canadian camp, from Nov. 20 to 29, also included a 3-0 exhibition win over a local team in the U.S.

Canada is preparing for the 2013 CONCACAF championship Feb. 18 to March 3 in Pueblo, Mexico. The top four teams will qualify for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey next summer.
