Soccer Texas-Ex Julia Grosso secures CONCACAF Championship Golden Boot – TexasSports.com

Fellow Texas-Ex Chelsea Surpris earned three caps with the Haitian Women’s Senior National Team
AUSTIN, Texas – Add another highlight to the sterling international resume of Texas-Ex and Juventus FC pro player Julia Grosso as the Vancouver, British Columbia, native secured the golden boot as the event’s top scorer while helping guide the Canadian Women’s Senior National Team to a runner-up finish at the CONCACAF Women’s Championship over July 4-18 in Mexico.
By finishing first in Group B, Canada also secured a berth to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup set to be hosted from July-August 2023 in Australia & New Zealand.
Grosso finished Team Canada’s five-match run through the championship by scoring her first three senior-level goals to go with an assist. The midfielder scored a brace (two goals) and dished a helper during the Red & White’s Group B victory over Trinidad & Tobago (W, 6-0) and later tallied the match winner in the 64th minute to power Canada past Panama, 1-0.
Now an established veteran of 41 senior-level caps for Canada, Grosso’s golden boot just adds to what has been an outstanding last 12 months for the Texas-Ex. Back in August 2021, she scored the decisive penalty kick in the sixth round of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic gold-medal shootout to complete Canada’s 1-1 (3-2 PK’s) triumph over Sweden.
Back on the Forty Acres for the 2021 fall collegiate campaign, Grosso earned her second career United Soccer Coaches All-American accolade after totaling six goals and four assists while helping Texas to an 11-5-6 overall record and runner-up finishes in the Big 12 regular-season standings and at the Big 12 Championship.
In December 2021, Grosso signed a high-profile contract with Juventus FC of Italy’s Serie A, debuting with the Bianconere on Jan. 16, 2022, during a 5-0 win over Pomigliano.
Surpris Earns Caps with Team Haiti: Texas-Ex Chelsea Surpris earned three senior-level caps with Haiti at the CONCACAF Women’s Championship.
The Crowley, Texas, native started in the defensive backline during all three Group A matches against the United States (L, 0-3), Mexico (W, 3-0) and Jamaica (L, 0-4). Haiti finished the event at 1-2-0 to sit third in its group and miss qualifying for the CONCACAF Championship knockout round. The squad will now advance on to inter-confederation playoffs over Feb. 18-23, 2023, in an attempt to earn a berth in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to be held in Australia & New Zealand.
Surpris currently plays pro soccer for Football Feminin Yzeure Allier Auvergne in league D2 Feminine (France).
