Canada’s men’s national team must win its two-match set in June to advance to Stage III of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Qualifiers (August to November 2008). After tomorrow’s road match, Canada will return home to play on 20 June in Montréal (Stade Saputo tickets available through admission.com or 514.790.1245).



“All these players are playing on a good level, they have all made sacrifices to be here,” said Mitchell earlier in the week. “Hopefully they can get the results to make this a successful run.”



Saint Vincent & the Grenadines has announced that its home match will be broadcast live via internet radio on three stations: NBC Radio (nbcsvg.com), NICE Radio (bdsnice.servehttp.com) and STAR Radio (star983fm.com). Earlier this week, Canada announced that its 20 June home match will be broadcast live on Sportsnet West (television) and THE TEAM 990 (radio AM 990 and internet team990.com). The match will also be replayed on Sportsnest Pacific, Sportsnet Ontario and Sportsnet East.



Canada’s men’s national team is looking to get back to the FIFA World Cup™ for the first time since 1986. From within CONCACAF, three or four teams (out of 35 total or 24 remaining) will represent the confederation at South Africa 2010™. The Canadian men are currently ranked fourth in CONCACAF based on the most recent FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings. Canada also had a top-four finish at last year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup by reaching the semi-final.
