Canada continues their January training camp ahead of a weekend away Men's International Friendly match against Bermuda. Canada Soccer's Men's National Team will face their CONCACAF rivals at the Bermuda National Stadium on Sunday 22 January, their first international match of the 2017 season.

"It has been a vibrant and positive atmosphere," said Michael Findlay, Canada Soccer's Men's National Team Interim Head Coach. "It has been a very competitive environment and it has provided us with some early assessment and evaluation for the 2017 season."

The Men's National Team camp predominantly features players from clubs in out-of-season leagues in North America. Alongside preparing for the international match, the camp is structured to give players an early jump on the 2017 season ahead of their club pre-seasons.

Canada trains in Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA from 12-18 January, then travel to Bermuda. Only 18 players will be selected for travel on 19 January.

CANADA v BERMUDA
The 22 January 2017 Bermuda v Canada match will kick off at 15.00 local and be broadcast live on canadasoccer.com (14.00 ET / 11.00 PT). The international match will help kick off Canada's 2017 season, which will include the biennial CONCACAF Gold Cup in July. 

This will mark the ninth meeting between the two nations dating back to FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in 1968. Canada is unbeaten in that stretch with four wins and four draws, including a 3:0 win in their last meeting 10 years ago on 25 March 2007.

Over the past two years, Canada's overall record is nine wins, seven draws and eight losses in 24 international matches against all opponents.

Five young Canadian soccer players have earned their first call ups to the Men's National Team. The young footballers have all come up through the national youth program before taking that next step in their international careers.

The five debutants are Molham Babouli (Mississauga), Marco Carducci (Calgary), Jay Chapman (Brampton), Raheem Edwards (Toronto), and Ben McKendry (Vancouver).

All five players are Canadian Championship winners in the past two years with either Toronto FC (2016) or Vancouver Whitecaps FC (2015). They have also all either participated in a CONCACAF or Pan American Games youth international tournament. As part of Canada Soccer's Men's EXCEL Program, the five players benefitted from 423 days in the national youth program.

Canada Soccer's Men's National Team is in Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA from 12-18 January. From the larger group of 27 players, a travel squad of 18 players will head to Bermuda for a Men's International Friendly match on 22 January.

"We are really excited about the mix of young and experienced players," said Michael Findlay, Canada Soccer's Men's National Team Interim Head Coach. "The young players can learn from those that have played at the professional and international level, while those experienced players are motivated by the next generation. We want to create the best environment for our players to excel."

The Debutants

Molham Babouli - Toronto FC's 24-year old forward made his debut in the Canadian Championship in 2016, making four appearances and recording two assists before lifting the Voyageurs Cup. The former League1 Ontario all-star made his debut in the national program in 2015. He pushed Canada to within a win of qualifying for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Marco Carducci - The 20-year old goalkeeper was part of Vancouver Whitecaps FC's 2015 Canadian Championship winning season. The former Canadian U-17 Player of the Year joined the Canadian youth program at age 15. He represented Canada at the FIFA U-17 World Cup UAE 2013.

Jay Chapman - Toronto FC's 23-year old midfielder won the 2016 Canadian Championship in his second year with the big club. He was 16 years old when he joined the Canadian youth program and has since participated in two CONCACAF tournaments at the U-17 and U-23 levels (Olympic Qualifiers). He represented Canada at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Mexico 2011.

Raheem Edwards - Toronto FC's 21-year old forward won the 2016 Canadian Championship after making his debut as a substitute in the final match (down a goal in the series, Toronto FC pulled off a last-minute Championship victory). He was 19 years old when he made his debut in the Canadian program at the 2015 Pan American Games.

Ben McKendry - Vancouver Whitecaps FC's 23-year old midfielder won the 2015 Canadian Championship and later earned man-of-the-match honours in the 2016 semi-finals. He was 17 years old when he joined the Canadian youth program and then represented Canada at the CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship in 2013.

Canada Soccer have announced their squad for the first Men's National Team camp of the 2017 calendar year. The camp will help prepare the team for an upcoming Men's International Friendly in Bermuda on 22 January.

The 28-man squad predominantly features players from clubs in out-of-season leagues in North America. From this larger group, only 18 will be selected for travel to Bermuda.

"We want to give our players an early advantage heading into their pre-seasons, but also give our staff an opportunity to observe, evaluate, and educate a larger group of players," said Michael Findlay, Canada Soccer's Men's National Team Interim Head Coach. "This project also provides an internal competition within the larger group as only 18 will be selected for travel to the match."

Of note, players from all five Canadian professional teams are included in the squad. At the international level, some of the most experienced players include Marcel de Jong, Dejan Jaković, Will Johnson, Nik Ledgerwood, Tosaint Ricketts, and Adam Straith.

More than half the squad is 24 or younger, including eight that have yet to make their international debut. The squad also includes five players that have received their first-ever call ups to the Men's National Team: Molham Babouli, Marco Carducci, Jay Chapman, Raheem Edwards, and Ben McKendry.

Unavailable through injury are both David Edgar of Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Cyle Larin of Orlando City SC.

Canada will be based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA from 12-18 January before traveling to Bermuda.

The international match will help kick off Canada's 2017 season, which will include the biennial CONCACAF Gold Cup in July.
