Canada Plays Ukraine in Friendly Friday

The Canadian Men’s National soccer team will play the Ukrainian national men’s team in an international friendly Friday, October 8, in Kiev.  The Canadian team is coming off a win last month in Montreal over Honduras.

Eighteen players were selected by Canadian Coach Stephen Hart to join the national training camp that began October 1.  Seventeen of the players play professionally in Europe.  The exception is defender Dejan Jakovic, who plays for DC United.  Four players, forwards Marcus Haber and Olivier Occean, along with midfielder Julian Uccello and defender David Edgar, are taking part in their first 2010 Canadian camp.  Coach Hart has expressed his interest in seeing and evaluating as many players as possible during this first year of the new World Cup cycle.
