CanMNT name roster for pre-World Cup training camp in Bahrain

The Canadian Men’s National Team have named their roster for the week-long training camp in Bahrain ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

The camp is designed to keep players sharp ahead of the World Cup, with Canada – currently 41st in the Fifa World Rankings – beginning their Group F campaign against Belgium on November 23.

As part of the camp, the CanMNT will play a friendly against the Bahrain national team on Friday, November 11, followed by another fixture against Japan before the tournament begins.

The roster announced by John Herdman on Wednesday should give a good indicator of which MLS-based talent will make the World Cup, though European stars such as Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David are absent due to ongoing club commitments.
