Canada is training this week in Montréal for a Saturday night match against Honduras. It will be the second of six group matches for both teams in what is CONCACAF Stage III of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Qualifiers.

“Everybody has to realize its going to come down to six matches, not one,” says coach Dale Mitchell. “With a group like this, (this stage is) a table, it’s a small league.”

Canada is playing six matches against three teams in Stage III of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Qualifiers. Three of those matches are in Canada: 20 August against Jamaica in Toronto (a 1:1 draw), 6 September against Honduras in Montréal (admission.com or 514.790.1245) and 15 October against Mexico in Edmonton (Ticketmaster.ca / 780.451.8000).

Canada has 20 players in camp after Greg Sutton returned home to be with his family. There were two goalkeepers and 18 outfield players at training this morning, the team’s first on the Stade Saputo grass this week. Coach Mitchell and his staff will have to select 18 players to dress for Saturday’s match against Honduras.

The 6 September match will be televised live on Sportsnet. For those viewers with all four Sportsnet channels, the match will be found live on Sportsnet Ontario and Sportsnet East (20.00 ET / 18.00 MT / 17.00 PT) and delayed on Sportsnet West (21.00 MT) and Sportsnet Pacific (23.00 PT). The match will also be broadcast live on Team 990 radio.
