Canada announces match against Panama

20 of the 23 called up by coach John Herdmann were present at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar

The Panamanian national team already knows the Canadian team it will face in the ‘Final Four’ of the CONCACAF Nations League. On 15 June, both the teams will face off in one of the semi-finals of the tournament in Las Vegas, United States.

To this end, Canadian coach John Herdman has decided to summon his entire arsenal and try to reach the final tournament. It should be noted that the Canadian team has not won an official tournament since 2000 when they won the Gold Cup after defeating Colombia in the final.

Those being summoned include Milan Borjan, Stephen Eustaquio, Tajon Buchanan, Jonathan David, Alfonso Davis and Kyle Larin. Canada’s offensive sector has a lot to say.

David was the third best scorer in Ligue 1 in France with 24 goals, Larin had a remarkable end to the season and was able to break into the nets of important clubs such as Valencia, Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona. Meanwhile, Davies is still recovering from an injury that sidelined him from Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Furthermore, Herdman has decided to call up 20 players who were present at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 because in his opinion “these players have definitely earned the right to be two games away (from the trophy). They are in the Nations League”. The matches are tough and they’ve worked hard, so for some of these players, it’s important,” Herdman said during the press conference.

There are 23 called up to the Canadian national team.,

goalkeeper: Milan Borjan (Red Star Belgrade/Serbia), Tom McGill (Brighton & Hove Albion/England) and Dayne St Clair (Minnesota United).

Citadel: Samuel Adekungbe (Galatasaray/Turkey), Derek Cornelius (Malmö/Sweden), Alistair Johnson (Celtic/Scotland), Scott Kennedy (Jahn Regensburg/Germany), Richie Laria (Toronto/MLS), Kamal Miller (Inter Miami/MLS) , Steven Vitoria (Chaves/Portugal) and Dominik Zetter (Corona Kielce/Poland).

MidfielderStéphane Eustaquio (Porto/Portugal), Atiba Hutchinson (Besiktas/Turkey), Ismail Kone (Watford/England), Victor Loturi (Ross County/Scotland), Jonathan Osorio (Toronto/MLS) and David Wotherspoon (St Johnstone/Scotland) ).
