CONCACAF GOLD CUP
The 2 September match will be Canada’s first international match following this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup. Canada kick off the biennial competition this 7 July in Harrison, NJ against French Guiana, with ensuing group matches on 11 July in Houston, TX against Costa Rica and 14 July in Frisco, TX against Honduras.
 
Taking place every two years, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is the official national team championship of North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Drawing large crowds and millions of television viewers from across the region, the Gold Cup is a celebration of soccer, sportsmanship, and culture.
 
Canada are two-time CONCACAF champions, having won the CONCACAF Championship in 1985 and the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2000. Since the first edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 1991, Canada's best finishes are first place in 2000 and semi-final finishes in 2002 and 2007. All time, Canada have posted a record of 15 wins, 11 draws, and 15 losses in 41 matches.

CANADA SOCCER HALL OF FAME
Ahead of the 2 September match, Canada Soccer will officially honour Paul Stalteri as a member of the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame. The CONCACAF champion and former Men’s National Team captain will be celebrated as part of the pre-match festivities at BMO Field.

Stalteri has been inducted as a player as part of the Class of 2017 (alongside Amy Walsh who will be celebrated on 11 June before a Women’s National Team match in Toronto). A CONCACAF champion in 2000, the two-time Canadian Player of the Year represented Canada at the FIFA Confederations Cup Korea/Japan 2001. He won both a Bundesliga title and a German Cup (DPF-Pokal) with Werder Breman in 2004.

 

Anthony Jackson-Hamel was the hometown hero as he scored the winning goal in a 2:1 win over Curaçao. The come-from-behind victory served as Canada Soccer's Men's National Team send off match before the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup this summer.‎‎

It was Canada Soccer's third win in six days for the National Teams, with the Women's National Team winning 3:1 in Winnipeg and 6:0 in Toronto before ‎the Men's National Team won 2:1 in Montréal. The series wraps up on 2 September when the Men's National Team faces Jamaica in Toronto at BMO Field.

Manjrekar James and Jackson-Hamel were the Canada goalscorers in the 13 June victory. Down 0-1 late in the first half, James breathed fire into the Canada comeback when he capitalised on a loose ball inside the box after a Will Johnson free kick.

MATCH CENTRE - CANADA 2:1 CURACAO

"It's very encouraging because we are at the beginning of a new process," said Octavio Zambrano, Canada Soccer's Men's National Team Head Coach. "This victory gives us more confidence, so we are going to enjoy today and then immediately start thinking about the CONCACAF Gold Cup."

Zambrano featured four debutants, with Raheem Edwards the starter and Alphonso Davies, Mark-Anthony Kaye, and Juan Córdova all second-half substitutes. In making his debut, Davies became the youngest player in‎ Men's National Team history.

"You just go out there, play your game, and don't think about it too much," said Davies. "To put on that Canadian jersey means a lot. I am really happy to get the opportunity to play for Canada."

Davies had a pair of chances stopped by Curaçao and Jackson-Hamel had a would-be goal turned back because the play was offside. Then Davies was fouled for a Canada penalty and Hoilett hit the post with his kick, but Samuel Piette won the ball back and Jackson-Hamel was right on target for the winning goal.

‎"The youth in this team have lots of energy," said Jackson-Hamel. "The young players are giving everything to get their place in the lineup, but we are also seeking that consistency to keep our place, too."

GOALS
Curaçao struck first in the 43rd minute.  Gevaro Nepomuceno from the left side rolled the ball into in the middle of the box to Rangelo Janga who drove it home left footed past Milan Borjan.

Canada got one right back in the 45th minute. From a Will Johnson free kick, Curaçao goalkeeper Eloy Room couldn’t hold the ball. James was Johnny on the spot and side volleyed the ball into the open net.

In the 86th minute, all of Alphonso Davies offensive pressure earned a penalty after he got clipped by Shanon Carmelia.  Junior Hoilett stepped up to the penalty spot, shot it low but was denied by the woodwork.  Curaçao cleared for a Canadian throw in.  

Canada took it quickly, Teibert fired it at goal, and Curaçao cleared it but not out of danger. Samuel Piette got the ball to Jackson-Hamel who fired it from long range, low into the corner to give Canada its first lead of the match.‎

SUMMER OF SOCCER IN CANADA
Following three exciting international matches in June 2017, Canada Soccer will complete the Summer of Soccer with a Men's International Friendly match on Saturday 2 September. At BMO Field in Toronto, Canada will face rivals Jamaica in the first international window following this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Tickets to the 2 September match go on sale 21 June starting at just $20, with a special advance window launching on 19 June. In advance of the individual ticket phase, groups of 10+ can submit orders which will be processed ahead of the public onsale if received by Friday 16 June. For complete ticket and event information, fans can visit canadasoccer.com/tickets. The 2 September match kicks off at 19.00 ET and all tickets to the match include free admission to the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) grounds.

CONCACAF GOLD CUP
Taking place every two years, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is the official national team championship of North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Drawing large crowds and millions of television viewers from across the region, the Gold Cup is a celebration of soccer, sportsmanship, and culture.

Canada are two-time CONCACAF champions, having won the CONCACAF Championship in 1985 and the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2000. Since the first edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 1991, Canada's best finishes are first place in 2000 and semi-final finishes in 2002 and 2007. All time, Canada have posted a record of 15 wins, 11 draws, and 15 losses in 41 matches.

 

There are plenty of storylines awaiting Tuesday night's international soccer match at Stade Saputo in Montréal. Take your pick: Octavio Zambrano's Men's National Team coaching debut for Canada; anywhere from one to six international debuts of young international players, including a 16-year old teenager named Alphonso Davies; possibly the last home international match for hometown hero Patrice Bernier.

It's also Canada Soccer's send-off match before the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which means our Men's National Team needs a positive performance from which it can build an extended run in this summer's confederation championship across the United States.

Canada Soccer's Men's National Team will face CONCACAF rivals Curaçao as both nations make their final preparations for the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The match kicks off at 19.30 ET on Tuesday 13 June, with tickets available via canadasoccer.com/tickets. The match will broadcast live across Canada on TSN 1, 3, 4 and 5 and RDS at 19.30 ET / 16.30 PT.

"It should be an exciting match and the players have received the message that this is a very important match," said Octavio Zambrano, Head Coach of Canada Soccer's Men's National Team. "It is the beginning of a new era and we have exciting, attacking, fast players. We have really good players here, so it will be an interesting time to decide the starting lineup for Tuesday.

This will mark the first-ever international meeting between the two nations. It also marks Curaçao's first appearance in the final round of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Since 2015, Canada has an international record of eight wins, five draws, and six losses in 19 matches; Curaçao, meanwhile, have a record of six wins, three draws, and three losses in 12 matches, including five-straight wins in 2016.

The 13 June match also represents Canada's first match in Montréal since September 2010 when they won 2:1 over CONCACAF rivals Honduras. This time, Canada's squad features a trio of Montréal-based players in Patrice Bernier, Maxime Crépeau, and Anthony Jackson-Hamel. Bernier is the most experienced player in the squad and has had a terrific start to his 2017 campaign with Impact Montréal FC. If this is Bernier's last professional season, then Tuesday night will also be his last home international in front of friends and family

"It is a new start with so many young players included in the squad," said Bernier, whose last international match was in January 2015 against Iceland. "We have been learning what Octavio Zambrano wants to instill as part of his philosophy and with each training we have been putting things together to ensure we put forth the best performance on Tuesday."

Alongside the three Impact players, Samuel Piette is sure to be another fan favourite as the 22-year old midfielder hails from nearby Le Gardeur and was in fact a recipient of the Impact's bursary program in 2008 and 2009. Piette now plays with CD Izarra in Spain and is already one of the more experienced players in the Men's National Team Program with two CONCACAF Gold Cups under his belt.

"It's a very exciting as it will be my first match in Montréal in front of family and friends," said Samuel Piette, who was only 17 years old when he made his international debut in 2012. "We are looking forward to playing in the Impact's beautiful stadium with the hopes of getting the victory."

Alongside that experience, the youngest player in the squad is 16-year old Alphonso Davies who is taking part in his first Men’s National Team camp. Davies, who has been part of Canada Soccer’s Men’s EXCEL Program since 2014, became a Canadian citizen last week before flying across the country for his first call up with the National Team.

While Davies is the lone teenager, he is one of 12 players aged 23 or younger. He is also one of six players who hopes to make his international debut alongside Juan Córdova, Raheem Edwards, Andrés Fresenga, Mark-Anthony Kaye, and Tyler Pasher.
