Canada Soccer have announced their team roster for the match against Bermuda on Thursday [March 25] at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

A spokesperson said, “The Canada roster features a mix of established veterans and young players who will be embarking on their first FIFA World Cup Qualifiers campaign.

“Canada Soccer’s 2020 Player of the Year Alphonso Davies is set to return to Canadian colours for the first time following an incredible year of personal and club achievements. With Davies playing a crucial role, FC Bayern München captured a historic six trophies in 2020 including the UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, Bundesliga Title, DFB Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and German Super Cup.

“Individually, Davies was recognized for his outstanding play as he was named co-winner of the 2020 Lou Marsh Memorial Trophy as Canada’s outstanding athlete, the Lionel Conacher Award as the Canadian Press Male Athlete of the Year, and the Postmedia Canadian Male Athlete of the Year Award.

“Veteran midfielder and six-time Canada Soccer Player of the Year, Atiba Hutchison, will return to action for Canada looking to build on his 84 appearances wearing the maple leaf on the international stage over his illustrious career. Hutchison is joined by his Beşiktaş teammate Cyle Larin with the duo combining to push their club to top of the Súper Lig table in Turkey.

“Goalkeeper Milan Borjan of FK Crvena zvezda [Red Star Belgrade in Serbia], midfielder Sam Piette of CF Montreal [Canada], and forward Junior Hoilett of Cardiff City [Wales] are among the veterans who will bring previous FIFA World Cup Qualifying experience to the squad.

“In total, the players named to Canada’s roster have made 343 appearances for their country. Returning members of the squad include goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau [Vancouver Whitecaps FC]; defenders Steven Vitória [Moreirense FC], Kamal Miller [CF Montreal], Richie Laryea [Toronto FC], and Samuel Adekugbe [Vålerenga Fotball]; midfielders, Mark-Anthony Kaye [Los Angeles FC], Stephen Eustáquio [F.C. Paços de Ferreira], David Wotherspoon [St. Johnstone FC], and Jayden Nelson [Toronto FC]; and forwards Liam Millar [Charlton Athletic FC] and Lucas Cavallini [Vancouver Whitecaps FC].

“Defender Ricardo Ferreira receives his first call-up to Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team following his change of national associations in February, and will be joined by 18-year old Theo Corbeanu of Woverhampton Wanderers FC in participating in their first Canada camp. Including Ferreira and Corbeanu, there are a total of seven players in Canada’s squad who will be looking to make their first international “A” appearance.

“Other potential debutants are Dayne St. Clair of Minnesota United [USA], Frank Sturing of FC Den Bosch [Netherlands], Joel Waterman of CF Montreal [Canada], Alistair Johnston of Nashville SC [USA], and Cristian Gutierrez of Vancouver Whitecaps FC [Canada], all five of whom participated in Canada’s recent January training camp in Florida, USA.

“Canada Soccer made every effort to secure all Men’s National Team players to participate in the March FIFA window. However, forward Jonathan David was unavailable for the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Qualifiers in Florida.

“It’s been tough behind the scenes to make sure that players could be available to us, but unfortunately it wasn’t possible with Jonathan,” said Herdman. “However, we’ll come through these times and see Jonathan back on the pitch for Canada in the near future.”
