Canada has two games left in this stage, albeit the team has been eliminated from 2010 South Africa competition. On return from Honduras, two players returned to their club teams in Europe. Rob Friend returned to Borussia Mönchengladbach while Atiba Hutchinson returned to F.C. København.

Coming into the Canadian camp are Adrian Serioux of FC Dallas and Charles Gbeke of the Vancouver Whitecaps. Serioux missed the game in Honduras because of a suspension. Gbeke, meanwhile, joins the team on the heels of his Most Valuable Player performance in the United Soccer Leagues First Division final. Gbeke scored two goals in the Whitecaps 2:1 victory over the Puerto Rico Islanders on Sunday night.
