Full coverage of the match will be available at CanadaSoccer.com, including live in-match tweets via Canada Soccer’s Twitter stream at twitter.com/CanadaSoccerEN. This Friday marks Match Day Three for CONCACAF Stage II of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Brazil™.



“We are expecting a difficult match with St. Lucia playing at home,” said Canadian assistant coach Tony Fonseca. “Their players are used to these conditions and we are not. We have to adapt quickly and not make any mistakes. I would say that concentration is a must.”



Along with the live coverage, there will be post-match video available on CanadaSoccerTV. While no live broadcast is available for the match, broadcaster Rogers Sportsnet will be present to supply additional coverage.



Beyond Friday, Canada returns home to face Puerto Rico on Match Day Four this coming Tuesday 11 October. Fans are encouraged to buy tickets to the Match Day 4 home match via Ticketmaster at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000.



Only one team will advance from this four-team group in CONCACAF Stage II. Canada is the group leader with six points following victories against St. Lucia and Puerto Rico in early September. Canada will also face St. Kitts and Nevis in back-to-back matches in November.
