Canada Soccer  – Canada Soccer has announced the roster of 14 players who will travel to Costa Rica 15-22 January to play a pair of futsal friendlies on 18 January at 21:00 ET and 20 January at 17:00 ET. The roster will include three players who competed in the 2016 CONCACAF Futsal Championship where Canada met the host country in their opening match, a thrilling 3-2 loss to the three-time federation champions.
 
“This is a terrific opportunity for us to build on the momentum that started in 2016, early in this 2020 Futsal World Cup cycle, against a premier opponent in our federation,” said Futsal Head Coach Kyriakos (Kyt) Selaidopoulos. “After a year of traveling across the country, holding camps and running clinics and sessions, this group has the opportunity to show that they can play against one of the brightest programs in world futsal.”
 
One of the returning players from 2016 is the current and first-ever Canada Soccer Futsal Player of the Year Nazim Belguendouz. Two players representing 2017 Futsal Canadian Championship winners Sporting Montreal FC also make the list. The team played in the 2017 CONCACAF Futsal Club Championship in Honduras last August.
 
“We have some players who gained valuable experience in the top tournaments in our region over the past couple of years,” Selaidopoulos said. “With a mix of experience and newcomers who have been working on their game as the game matures across the country, we have confidence that we can surprise some teams come 2020.”
 
The matches will be streamed via Costa Rica’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/FEDEFUTBOLCR
