  I think this would be our best 11 with the players called up:

       Davies-Cavallini-Larin

              Kaye-Hutchinson

                    Eustaquio

  Adekugbe-Miller-Vitoria-Laryea

                      Borjan

I was thinking this exactly except with Hoilett on the right and Larin up top. But yours is enticing.

So only 24 guys called up is disappointing when multiple nations are calling up over 25 guys. Even if it was to train, I would’ve love to see Canniggia.

Oh yea, and Arfield should be done as captain #respectfully.

I expect us to make changes after Bermuda. Although with domestic players added.

I'd probably invert Davies and Larin, but I'm sure they'll swap back and forth. I suspect Johnston might get the nod too, but we'll see

The 3. Liga doesn't go on break during the international window so Elva would have had to missed club games if he was called up

I guess only David and Osorio are the main omissions. Arfield we already knew about.

Anyone else I can think of is injured.

Probably would have been good to have Cornelius here.

I feel like Cornelius is being better utilized at the olympics (although if we drop some points in these matches I might deeply regret this statement)

No Osorio? Is he injured?

Ferreira call up is a bit of a joke IMO. But I guess it wouldn't be a true Canada squad without Unattached FC.

My guess is Herdman wants Ferreira playing. He’s going to use this as a showcase so hopefully by June he’s on a club and getting regular minutes.

Why is Nelson in the squad when he’s only played 7 games and 141 minutes for tfc. Surely we could’ve picked some other MLS player who actually gets game time.

He would have been on the U23 team had not been for the TFC Covid situation, usually a few promising young players are included on every roster.

This is the only selection that i don’t understand. I could be biased though as I have never really liked his game

Maybe Ferreira has been helping JH and his scouting team scout luso-canadians (that's what you call a Portuguese/Canadian descendent) in Liga NOS/ as well as understand the structure of that league system. 

I do agree that JH will likely use this as a showcase for Ferreira and will probably look to help Ferreira land a spot on an MLS team.

Ferreira has been with Herdman since February according to Lucas Dias. He (Ferreira) has been helping JH and his scouting team scout luso-canadians (that's what you call a Portuguese/Canadian descendent) in Liga NOS/ as well as understand the structure of that league system. 

I do agree that JH will likely use this as a showcase for Ferreira and will probably look to help Ferreira land a spot on an MLS team. 

So he's been scouting two players? Are there others we don't know about?

He is pretty highly rated in the system and would have been in the Olympic team so it isn't too shocking. 

I also think he had a great camp in January as well.  Looked quite good in intersquad highlights.

I know this will be controversial but I’d much prefer someone like teibert then Nelson. Don’t need to be testing out a young player during wcq. 

Teibert? With the midfield we have? There's no reason for him to see the field. Nelson has pro minutes at 18 and has impressed when he'd been with the national team.

Yeah if only we were able to play more games. I'm going to assume he won't get any minutes and maybe Herdman just wants to give him looks in training and get him mixed into the team. Probably views him as a big part of the future

I feel like If we did call up someone like Teibert, he wouldn’t be used anyways. Similar to Nelson in this situation, so it would be more beneficial in the long-term for Nelson to develop good chemistry with the team

There was no reason for Nelson to be in this camp instead of Olympic qualifying where he might have actually been useful. There’s also more than enough players in the Olympic squad who have a lot better argument to be in the wcq then Nelson.

I'm not sure worrying about the player who's most likely number 21 out of 21 on the depth chart (excluding GK's) is worth it. 

Besides, against the clubs we'll be playing in this window, I'll take a guy who could possibly create something on his own against a parked bus, vs. a solid but unspectacular midfielder who doesn't offer you too much in the final third.
