  10. From the match day programme The Canada Squad - by Roy Kitson Prolific Fulham striker Paul Peschisolido will carry Canadian hopes in attack tonight. Paul played up front in the game against MSV Duisburg last month with Carlo Corazzin, with Paul Stalteri replacing Peschisolido in the 86th minute. Peschisolido, 27, born in Ontario, is presently looking to gain promotion out of the Nationwide Division ě with Fulham whom he joined for £1,000,000 from West Bromwich Albion in October 1997. The 5'7 striker has excellent speed off the mark and ball technique which make him a very awkward opponent. He has also played for Toronto Blizzards, Birmingham City and Stoke City. he has 35 caps for Canada. When Northern Ireland played Canada in May 1995 in Edmonton, Paul scored two goals in Canada's 2-0 victory - the first of which was Canada's 200th goal in international football. He has scored half a dozen international goals and made a scoring debut in June 1992 against Hong Kong in Toronto (3-1). Also 27 and playing in Nationwide Divison 2 is Carlo Corrazin (32 caps), of Northampton Town. Born in British Columbia, he has played for Winnipeg Fury, Vancouver Whitecaps, Cambridge Utd - for whom he scored 39 goals in 105 league games - and Plymouth Argyle whom he joined in March 1996. Carlo moved to Nothampton Town last autumn after Plymouth had been relegated from the Second Divsion. He is a good passer of the ball and possesses good technique. His preferred position is a central striker and despite a poor season for his club he has been a regular goalscorer with 15 of his team's 32 league goals to date. In 1995 Carlo and Peschisolido formed the striking partnership against Northern Ireland. Made his international debut in 1994 against Morocco in Montreal (1-1). Paul Stalteri, 22, is a reserve player with Bundesliga Werder Bremen, looking to break through into the first team. He is a highly rated member of the Canadian Olympic under-23 squad and has also played for the senior side. Other members of the squad against Northern Ireland are 23 year old David Xausa (he is currently on trial in Holland), who has played for Port Vale, Stoke City and St. Johnstone and 25-year old Garret Kusch (RAEC Mons, Belgium, Division 3). He has also played for Vancouver 86ers, Wichita Eagles and KV Oostende (Belgium, Division 1), and has represented Canada at Olympic and sernior levels. Midfielder star is Nick Dasovic, of St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premier League, who was runner-up to Radzinski in the 'Player of the Year' poll. He joined St. Johnstone from Swedish First Divisoin club Trelleborg in 1996/97, and the 6'1 30-year-old midfielder has become a vital part of St. Johnstone's side. Nick played against Northern Ireland in 1995, when he was with Vancouver 86ers. He has also played for St-Brieuc (France, Division 3), Dinamo Zagreb (Croatia, Division 1), Montreal Impact and North York Rockets. He is best known in Scotland for scoring a goal and earning the 'Man of the Match' award in this season's Scottish League Cup final. A couple of months earlier he had cored his first League goal in four years when St. Johnstone won 1-0 against Celtic at Parkhead. He has over 40 caps, making his debut in April 1992 against China in Victoria (5-2). Also in midfield expect to see players such as Fernando Aguiar, 27, of FC Maia in the Portuguese 2nd Division, who has half a dozen caps, having made his debut in 1995 in Toronto. He also played for Toronto Blizzard and CD Nacional (Portugal, Division 2). Others hoping to make an impact are Ante Jazic of Croatian First Division side Hrvatski Dragovoljac; Kashka Walker with Stevenage Borough in the Nationwide Conference; 22-year old Steven Kindell (RAEC Mons, Belgium Division 3, and previously with Vancouver 86ers), while 20-year old Marc Bircham (Millwall) is also hoping to make the break-through into the senior side. He is also qualified to play for the Republic of Ireland, but opted for Canada. Also members of the squad are Jason Bent, who is currently with Toronto Lynx, having had a spell with German 2nd Division side FSV Zwickau, and 21-year old Jim Brennan of Bristol City. At the back, coach Osieck will be looking to the experience of 29-year old central defender Paul Fenwick, who moved from Winnipeg Fury in season 1992/93 to play for Birmingham City before moving to Dunfermline Athletic and St. Mirrent. He is now with Greenock Morton and made his international debut in 1994 against the Netherlands in Toronto. Also playing in Scotland are Richard Hastings, 21, with Inverness Caledonian Thistle, and the highly-rated Jason De Vos, 24, of Dundee United. The 6'4 central defender played for Montreal Impact before moving to Britain in season 1996/97, and created a record for his previous club, Darlington, when he became their first ever international when he played against Iran in Toronto in 1997. Jason is an excellent header of the ball and is particularly dangerous from set-piece moves in the 18-yard area. He also played for Kitchener Spirit in Canada. He moved to Dundee United last October for 400,000 pounds. Look out too, for another experienced central defender in Mark Watson, 28, who is currently playing with Oxford United after moving from Osters IF in Sweden. He has previously played in season 1993/94 for Watford, whom he joined from Vancouver 86ers in November, 1993. He has around 40 caps and made his debut in September 1992 against the USA in St. John. Looking to make a big impact is a young player who celebrated his 20th birthday just four days ago, Brad Parker - capped at all levels from U-17 to senior - who is currently on the books of Feyenoord Rotterdam, while another young player, Jeff Clarke, 21, is with St. Patrick's Athletic of Dublin, having previously played for Vancouver 86ers. In goals is likely to be Craig Forrest, of West Ham United, through the 45 times capped, the 31-year old, has found it hard to regain a regular first team sport this season for the Hammers. He moved to West Ham from Ipswich in the summer of 1997 for 500,000 pounds, having previously played for the East Anglian club from 1985, as an apprentice, until 1997, winning a Second Division Champions' medal in 1992. He stands 6'5 and is an excellent steadying influence on his defenders. Reservers keeper is Lars Hirschfeld, of German Second Division side Enrgie Cottbus.
  11. Matt Passacquale is a 15 year old who has been playing with the SC Heerenveen U17 team.
  12. Lucas Areco is another player born in 2001, and is currently with Perugia U19 in Italy. He played in 11 matches during the 2019/2020 season, with the last one coming on March 8th.
  13. The Welsh team was made up mostly of players from the U21 side. GK Tony Roberts (QPR), Martyn Margetson (Manchester City) DEF Alan Nielson (Newcastle United), Lee Baddeley (Cardiff City), Ian Hughes (Bury), Karl Reddy (QPR), Damon Searle (Cardiff City), Mark Peters (Manchester City) MF Shaun Capple (Manchester City), Ceri Hughes (Luton Town), Gareth Owen (Wrexham), Robert Edwards (Bristol City), Craig Lawton (Manchester United) FW Iwan Roberts (Huddersfield), Lee Jones (Liverpool), Nathan Blake (Cardiff City)
  14. Does anyone know the result of this match? I have the official programme, but I am struggling to find the result. The match was played at the Racecourse in Wrexham. Was this match part of a tour of the UK by the Canadian team? The Welsh FA listed the match as a B international, but as far as I know this was the Canadian U23 team and coached by Tony Waiters. Notes about the Canadian players from the programme --- GK Paolo Ceccarelli (North York Rockets) - The regular goalkeeper who started in all four Round 3 Qualifying matches this year and has made 8 appearances at Under 23 level. Although participating in training camps at Under 17 and Under 20 levels he did not represent his country until 1989 when he established himself with the North York Rockets. Also played at B level vs Italy in 1989 so is every experienced. He is taking time off from his studies and working as a supply teacher. Carmine Iscacco (Toronto Italia) - A student in his third year at the University of Maryland, this tall keeper has yet to appear for his country at any level and this tour will be his first national team selection. A regular for the Toronto Italia team he is very much on trial during this trip. Scott McQuillan (Kitchener Kickers) - The experienced deputy to Ceccarelli who sat on the bench throughout the Round 3 Qualifying matches and at 6ft 7in is certainly and imposing figure! Four years in the Canadian Soccer League with Edmonton Brickmen, Calgary Kickers and the last two seasons at Kitchener Kickers. Made 6 appearances at Under 20 level in 1988 during the Concacaf Championships DEFENDERS David Cepo (Hamilton Steelers) - A McMaster University student who has yet to appear at Under 23 level for his country despite making 12 appearances at under 17 and under 20 levels which included the 1989 World Cup Finals in Scotland where Canada lost all three group matches. Can also play in midfield and had a successful second season with the Hamilton Steelers in the CSL. Paul Fenwick (Hamilton Steelers) - A powerful central defender who graduated last year from McMaster University with a BSc in physiotherapy, but has taken a year off to try and fulfil his soccer ambitions. Played twice for the under 20 side in the 1988 Concacaf Championships, but despite 8 appearances at Under 23 level only played twice in the 3rd Qualifying Round scoring his countries' first goal in the 4-0 victory over El Salvador. Came to prominence with the Kitchener Kickers, but was traded to the Toronto Blizzard in 1991 without establishing himself so was glad to join Hamilton Steelers to revive his career. Carl Fletcher (Toronto Blizzard) - Very experienced performer at International level with 8 appearances at each of Under 17, 20, and 23 categories including the three group matches during the 1987 FIFA Under 17 World Championships. A regular with the Toronto Blizzard in the CSL he also had an extended trial with Bristol City in 1991. Kevin Holness (Winnipeg Fury) - Another player just as happy in midfield who returns to the squad after a groin injury. Has missed only one match in the CSL during his two seasons with Winnipeg Fury so is pretty durable. A regular squad member during the 3rd Round Qualifying matches only making the starting line up vs El Salvador, but his other international appearances include 7 at Under 17 level including at the 1987 World Championships, 4 at Under 20, 5 at Under 23 and 4 at B level. Gary Kern (Winnipeg Fury) - This tall central defender was a regular for the Under 23 team in 1990, but although in the squad for the Qualifying matches did not see any action. Played four seasons in the CSL with the Edmonton Brickmen, Calgary Strickers and for the last two years with the Winnipeg Fury team where he has been a regular. A student in his final year at the University of BC studying physical education, he also played a season of varsity basketball at the Universtiy of Calgary. Steve MacDonald (Vancouver 86ers) - An almost certain starter who has established himself in the Vancouver 86ers side especially over the past three seasons. Played in the opening two Olympic qualifying matches, but was sent off after 82 minutes in the second and was suspended for three games. In 1989 he played at B level v Faroe Islands and Italy and has appeared at three other levels including 1987 FIFA Under 17 Championships. A local sales and marketing executive in Vancouver. Mark Watson (Hamilton Steelers) - A full International with appearances v Mexico, United States, and Honduras during 1991 who played in all the four Olympic qualifying compeition matches. Initially with the Ottawa Intrepid club who joined the Steelers for the 1991 season and was selected for the CSL All Star team that season. A student at the University of BC studying sports administration, he is returning to the squad after a knee operation. MIDFIELD Fernando Aguiar (Toronto Blizzard) - A surprise selection for the trip, who has yet to make an international appearance for his country at any level. Portuguese by birth he only joined the Blizzard this season for his first in the CSL, so has clearly come from nowhere to join the party. Mike Dodd (Winnipeg Fury) - With 12 caps at Under 23 level this combative midfielder played in all four Olympic qualifying matches, so is a likely starter. Despite these caps played his first season with the Winnipeg Fury in the CSL last season with two goals from 14 appearances. At present he is taking a physical educatoin course at Capilano College before transferring to the University of BC. Scott Macey (Vancouver 86ers) - With 13 caps at Under 17 level, including the 1989 FIFA Championship finals in Scotland this experienced midfielder is a likely starter having played in all four of the 3rd Round qualifyinhg matches, scoring vs Trinidad and Tobago in Canadas' 3-0 victory. Has yet to establish himself in the Vancouver 86ers CSL team where he tends to be a squad member, but his 12 caps at Under 23 level suggest he has been a little unlucky at club level. Mike Mosher (London Lasers) - Another regular in the Olympic qualifying games with four appearances including the winning goal vs El Salvador. After four seasons in the CSL, the first three with Edmonton Brickmen, then drafted to Winnipeg Fury for the 1991 season, he will play for the London Lasers in 1992. An ever present last season with Winnipeg he also scored four goals. FORWARDS Carlo Corazzin (Pievigina, Italy) - The only European based player in the squad who has played for the last four seasons in Italy, first with Fourth Division Giorbione and then 3rd division Pievigina for the last three years. Did not play in any of the 3rd round Qualifying games, but appeared twice for the Under 23 team vs the United States in 1990. Scott Munson (Kitchener Kickers) - Named CSL Rookie of the Year last season with five goals from 25 appearances for the Kitchener Kickers in his first professional season. Along with Mark Watson has played in every Under 23 International, 13 in all and is the top scorer. Played in all the Olympic Qualifying matches, scoring four of Canada's seven goals including a hat trick vs Trinidad and Tobago. This brough him to the attention of the full International team's coach who picked him in all three Concacaf Gold Cup tournament matches last July. A student at the Simon Fraser University specialising in criminology who graduates this year. Grand Needham (Montreal Supra) - A likely starter who has played for the Supras in the CSL for the past four seasons and had his most successful year last year with seven goals in 22 matches to be named on the All Star team. Played in all four Olympic Qualifying games scoring twice vs El Salvador and also made 2 B level appearances vs Mexico and the USA during Marth 1991 in the North American Nations Cup. A student at Concordia University in Montreal specialising in anthropology. Paul Peschisolido (Toronto Blizzard) - Despite missing the training camp prior to this trip due to a groin injury he was selected for the tour due to his outstanding goalscoring record in the CSL of 28 goals from just 59 appearances. Played both Under 17 and Under 20 levels and was a starter in all the four Olympic qualifying matches scoring once vs Trinidad and Tobago.
