Olivier Occean has returned to Norway after earning his first cap in the 1-0 loss to Wales on May 30. Mark Watson was recalled by the Charleston Battery and will miss the exhibition game but will rejoin the team in Ottawa.



“There were many positive developments in the Wales game and I am very much looking forward to returning to San Jose with Canada,” said Yallop who coached the Earthquakes to two MLS championships in three years. “This will be our final game before Belize and I have a pretty good idea of the final squad but it will give some players another chance to show me what they can do.”
