Canada’s women’s national team has confirmed its roster for the upcoming international friendly match in Hamar, Norway. Coach Carolina Morace has selected 27 players that will travel with the team this 28 May in advance of the 3 June match.



The 3 June match kicks off at 18.00 local time at the Øvre Vang Stadium. Fans will be able to follow the match via CanadaSoccer.com’s twitter feed at

www.twitter.com/CanadaSoccerEN (12.00 ET / 09.00 PT).



This match will provide some of Canada’s younger players an opportunity to prove themselves to coach Morace and her staff. From the preceding camp in and around Washington, DC, USA, Women’s Professional Soccer stars Christine Sinclair, Candace Chapman and Erin McLeod have all returned to their professional clubs. Only Karina LeBlanc was released from her WPS club for this international match.



“Our players will have to show maturity to play without these important players,” said Canadian national head coach Carolina Morace. “It is not ideal to be playing this match without these veterans.”



Joining the team is Sasha Andrews and Diana Matheson from their clubs in Norway.



Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners and presenting sponsor is Teck, is currently preparing for the 2010 CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup, which is expected to be played this October and November. That confederation championship will qualify three teams for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011.
