Canada Makes Roster Changes

Columbus, OH – The Women’s World Cup Team made a roster change today replacing defender Breanna Boyd with defender Linda Consolante. Boyd was deemed medically unfit to play in the tournament as she is still recovering from the effects of a concussion suffered in July in a WUSA game. The CSA has informed the FIFA Medical Committee of the change and are expecting confirmation of the roster move.



Consolante joined the team for the international friendly against Australia on September 14 in Kingston, Ontario and has been with the squad training in Columbus, Ohio. The Montreal native has been capped three times for Canada and plays with the Ottawa Fury of the W-League.
