Canada and Mexico will then play the second match of the two-game series a little further north in La Quinta, CA on February 25, 2006.



In all likelihood, Pellerud will use the weeklong camp and two-game series to not only get a sense of where Mexico stands at present, but also to get an indication of what work will be required in the upcoming months to make certain that his squad is prepared for the task of qualifying in late 2006.



The team will then depart from San Diego, CA on February 27th bound for Vancouver, BC where Canada will play host to the Netherlands on March 1st at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium in Vancouver, BC and on March 4th at Centennial Stadium on the campus of the University of Victoria in Victoria, BC.
