“It will be another good opportunity to get the squad together in light of this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup,” said Canadian national head Stephen Hart.



The 29 March match takes place on an official FIFA International Date. Coach Hart plans to call 18 players to the squad. The majority of players will be arriving on 21 March with the first training session set for 22 March.



Canada opened the 2011 season in Larissa, Greece on 9 February. Following the 29 March match in Turkey, Canada hopes to organize another match for the next FIFA International Date on 1 June.
