Freshly back from Florida, Nick Dasovic and the boys are off to sunny Spain for another training camp and mini tournament, the Marbella Cup. Doneil Henry, Quillan Roberts and Nikola Paunic of TFC make the cut this time around.
Canada announced today the under 20 squad they'll be taking to Marbella in Spain for a 4 team mini-tournament, the Marbella Cup. The camp will run from October 7th-16th, with games against the USA on October 10th, Azerbaijan on the 12th and Scotland on the 15th.
It's another warm up for coach Nick Dasovic and the players who'll likely form the bulk of the squad that will be used in the Concacaf U20 championship in Mexico next year, which also serves as a qualifier for the U20 world cup in Turkey.
There are 6 differences from the squad that went down to Florida in September with Tyler Pasher, Sergio Camargo and Oscar Cordon of TFC missing out this time, along with Kai Morton, Jorgo Nika and Jason Mills. They're replaced by Doneil Henry, Marco Lapenna, Keven Aleman, Ben Fisk, Jonathan Lao and Stefan Vukovic. Also from TFC, Quillan Roberts and academy defender Nikola Paunic will make the trip.
