Canada announces roster for Ukraine camp
Canada has announced its roster for the upcoming national camp and Men's International Friendly match in Kyev, Ukraine. The Canadian team will face Ukraine this coming Friday 8 October at the Valeriy Lobanosvskyi in Kyev. The Canadian camp runs 3-9 October.
Coach Hart has selected 18 players for the camp, 17 of whom play professional soccer in Europe. Only Dejan Jakovic, who has been eliminated before the Major League Soccer playoffs, will fly across the Atlantic ocean for the Men's International Friendly.
Four players are taking part in their first national camp of the 2010 season: David Edgar, Marcus Haber, Olivier Occean and Julian Uccello. This means that coach Hart's pool has grown to 47 different players for the 2010 season, thus reflecting Hart's objective to see as many different players in this first year of a new FIFA World Cup™ cycle.
Canada's next major competition is next year's CONCACAF Gold Cup. Ukraine, the 26th-ranked country on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, is one of the co-hosts for the UEFA Euro 2010 championship.
