Ottawa, Ontario – Canadian Men’s World Cup Team Head Coach Holger Osieck today released the names of 15 players from the roster which will face the United States in an international friendly on January 18. An additional player will be announced at a later date. The game will be played at Lockhart Stadium in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with a 7:30 p.m. ET kick-off.



Two players are making their first appearances with the World Cup team. Defender Kevin Harmse (Vancouver’s ICSF Inter) was part of the Canadian Men’s Youth (U-20) Team which successfully qualified for the upcoming FIFA World Youth Championships in March/April in the UAE. The other new addition is defender Marco Reda, who recently re-signed with Norwegian side Sogndal. Reda is a former member of the Toronto Lynx and the Canadian Olympic Team.



Defender Tony Menezes returns to the World Cup squad after missing the previous two friendlies against Scotland and Switzerland while playing with Ganzu in China. Menezes has returned to Brazil and is considering his club options for 2003. Carl Fletcher rejoins the team after missing the Scotland game.



Several players were not available for selection due to the fact the game is not being played on an international date.
