Canada’s latest roster might be a bit younger than usual, but it still has its share of experienced offensive weapons.
Dwayne De Rosario and Tosaint Ricketts are among the 22 players that Canada interim head coach Colin Miller has summoned for an upcoming camp that will run from Jan. 19-30 in Arizona and Texas. The Canadians will play two friendlies during the camp, first squaring off against Denmark on Jan. 26 in Tucson, AZ before battling the U.S. Men’s National Team at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, TX.
Other notable players on Canada’s roster include Valerenga goalkeeper Lars Hirschfeld, recent MLS draft pick Kyle Bekker of Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps’ Russel Teibert.

Goalkeepers (3): Lars Hirschfeld (Valerenga), Roberto Stillo (Genoa), Simon Thomas (unattached)
Defenders (6): Ashtone Morgan (Toronto FC), Nana Attakora (FC Haka), Dejan Jakovic (D.C. United), Doneil Henry (Toronto FC), Mason Trafford (IFK Mariehamn), Andres Fresenga (Racing Club de Montevideo)
