To date, Canada has scored in every one of its matches in the FIFA World Cup™ Qualifiers campaign, a first in Association history.



Of note, two more Canadian players arrived on the island and joined the team for their first day of training – Adrian Cann and Andrzej Ornoch. Both had been originally named to the roster, but took an extra day to arrive because of their club schedules with Esbjerg Fb in Denmark.



From Canada’s 18-man roster in Jamaica, nine are returning from the last match in Edmonton (15 October) and two more have returned from earlier in the stage (Cann and Issey Nakajima-Farran). There are seven new members, including 21-year old rookies Asmir Begovic, David Edgar, Simeon Jackson and Will Johnson.
