Canada to face USA in pair of U-20 friendly matches
Posted on 10 December 2010 in Men's U-20 TeamCanadian coach Valerio Gazzola has announced his men’s U-20 roster for a pair of international friendly matches against USA. Canada faces USA at Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL on Thursday 16 December and Saturday 18 December.
"We want to build on what we have accomplished in the last two men’s U-20 camps," said Gazzola. "We are looking to solidify the core of players so that by next February, we are working on the finer points of the game."
Six players are taking part in their first U-20 camp with Gazzola. Those six new players are Sven Arapovic, Vince Caminiti, Kevin Cobby, Erik Grigoire and Sean Hart. Hart is one of four players that took part in last month’s U-23 / Olympic camp with Tony Fonseca (along with Ethan Gage, Julien Latendresse-Lévesque and Ashtone Morgan).
Canada’s men’s U-20 team is currently preparing for next year’s CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship in Guatemala. The 12-team championship runs 3-17 April 2011 with the top four teams qualifying for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Colombia 2011.
