Canada announces m20 camp

Posted on 4 September 2012 in Men's U-20 Team

Canada's men's U-20 team has selected a 20-player roster for an eight-day camp with international matches against Trinidad and Tobago. The Canadian team will train in Florida, USA where it will meet its CONCACAF rival for a pair of matches on 9 and 11 September 2012. The eight-day camp runs 5-12 September.

This marks coach Dasovic's second project for 1993-born players, with an eye towards next year's biennial CONCACAF & FIFA competitions. Canada will compete in the 2013 CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship from 18 February to 3 March in Mexico. Four teams from the 12-team tournament will qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Turkey 2013.

The Canadian squad features players from professional teams in Canada plus five European nations. In fact, 11 of the 20 players play for either Vancouver Whitecaps FC (Residency), FC Edmonton (Reserves), Toronto FC (Academy) or Impact Montréal (Académie) in Canada. Other players have been called in from clubs in England, Germany, Hungary, Portugal, and Spain.

Also of note, six of coach Dasovic's 20 call ups are new to the Canadian youth program. Those six new players are Jon Dollery, Kevin Luarca, Jason Mills, Kai Morton, Jorgo Nika and Allan Zebie.

In between matches against Trinidad and Tobago, Canada is scheduled to have six training sessions during the course of the camp.
