Canada WNT has announced its 18-player roster for the Sunday 2 June (16.30 local kick-off) Women’s International Friendly against USA at BMO Field in Toronto.

 

The squad features 14 players who were part of Canada’s bronze-medal-winning roster at London 2012.

 

In addition to the Olympic group, youngsters Kadeisha Buchanan, Tiffany Cameron and Ashley Lawrence continue to keep their places in the senior team after previous involvement with the side early in 2013.

 

Rachel Quon, a 21-year-old defender for Chicago Red Stars in NWSL, has earned her first call-up to a Canada camp.

 

Striker Melissa Tancredi rejoins the group for the first time since the team won its Olympic bronze medal against France in August 2012.

 

Of the 18 players named to the squad 10 featured in the Olympic semi-final between Canada and USA on 6 August 2012 in Manchester, UK.

“It was important for us to bring in a blend of youth and experience for this game,” said Head Coach John Herdman.

“We feel we have a good blend of players that have experience playing against USA – but we are also sticking to our task of preparing for the future.”

    Thank you for all those precious infos, Asa.

    It’s obvious that in 15 years, Hope Powell achived almost nothing with the NT as far as we look at the results : one Euro Final (with a 2-6 !), 2 wins out of 5 Cyprus Cup and that is all. Not even systematic qualifications for WC.

    I saw on Wiki that she is 1,79m. I thought she was rather small, I’m surprised.
