“Both Mexico and Holland are quality opponents and I am expecting strong opposition in all 4 games.



“This is an excellent opportunity for more than 20 of our best athletes the chance to showcase their abilities and soccer fitness at this time of the year.



“It is exciting that a country like Holland, with such a strong soccer culture has decided to have a 10 day camp here in BC, and as hosts we are looking forward to playing in front of TV cameras and hopefully stands full of fans – at both UBC and in Victoria.”
