Canada v Sweden – International Friendly (24 November 2014)
Canada announces squad to play Sweden
Canada have announced their squad to participate in two closed-door international friendly matches against Sweden on 24 and 26 November in California.
Canada Women’s National Team head coach John Herdman has selected 24 players to take part in the international friendlies as the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 hosts continue preparations for the big event next summer.
The matches will take place on Monday 24 November (kickoff at 14.00 local / 17.00 ET) and Wednesday 26 November (kickoff at 19.00 local / 22.00 ET).
John Herdman commented on Canada Soccer: “It’s a large squad. We’ve taken pretty much all our residency-based players that are physically able to contribute in the game, that’s pretty much our widest squad that we’re taking in.”
The players will be fighting for a place in the Canada Women’s National Team when John Herdman makes his final selection ahead of the World Cup.
