Coach Morace has selected 28 players for the 10-day camp, including Melanie Booth, Jonelle Filigno and Kelly Parker who are all recovering from injury.

Unavailable to the USA camp is Diana Matheson, who is in Norway recovering from injury.



This camp marks an important stage in the preparation for the 2010 CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup, which serves as the qualification phase for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011. As part of the camp, Canada will play an exhibition match against WPS club Washington Freedom on Sunday 23 May.



Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners and presenting sponsor is Teck, is currently ranked 10th on the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking. Canada has qualified for each of the past four FIFA Women’s World Cups dating back to Sweden 1995.
