Kurosawa1555362267 Posted May 27, 2005 Share Posted May 27, 2005 Ottawa, Ontario – Canadian Men’s National Team head coach Frank Yallop today named his roster for the upcoming training camp to be held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from June 4-9. Yallop has selected the majority of his players from the Canadian USL First Division teams with six players from the defending champion Montreal Impact, three from the Vancouver Whitecaps and one from the Toronto Lynx. The Impact players selected include goalkeeper Andrew Olivieri, defenders Adam Braz and Gabriel Gervais, midfielders Mesut Mert and Patrick Leduc and forward Ali Gerba who was acquired from Toronto last week. The Whitecaps will be sending defender Geordie Lyall, goalkeeper Mike Franks (who was Canada’s third goalkeeper at the 2001 Confederations Cup) and forward Jason Jordan who has scored seven goals in his last two games. The Toronto Lynx will be represented by forward Sean Fraser who saw time with the Canadian Olympic team. Other players invited include Edmonton’s Tam Nsaliwa, who has been capped 10 times at the senior level and who last played for Canada in 2003 against Germany. Toronto’s Rhian Dodds, who has spent several seasons with Kilmarnock of the Scottish Premier League, has been invited to his first senior camp. Montreal’s Felix Brillant has also been invited. Brillant was called in for Canada’s last World Cup Qualifier against Guatemala but did not play. He is with the New England Revolution of MLS. Former Whitecaps Johnny Sulentic has been selected. Sulentic is currently a teammate of Nsaliwa’s at Saarbrucken in the German Second Division. “This camp will give me an up close look at a number of players that I have had my eye on over the last few months,” said Yallop. “With the Gold Cup around the corner it will provide another great opportunity to see these players in a camp environment and in a strong competitive game.” The team will play one exhibition game during the camp.
