CANMNT Announce Squad for Gold Cup

Bring on the hot takes

Soccer: Women’s World Cup-Canada at New Zealand Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

Perhaps quicker than expected, John Herdman and the Canadian Mens National Team have released their Squad for the fast-approaching Gold Cup.

On first flush, a few surprises - The inclusion of Toronto FC’s not-so-gentle giant Noble Okello will certainly raise some eyebrows, as will the omission of Barcelona B prospect Ballou Tabla.

Personally, I was surprised to see Will Johnson on the team sheet, but we’ve heard often enough how much John Herdman values veterans in the locker room, so I suppose that plays a part.

Canada’s Campaign begins June 15th as they take on Martinique in Group A action.

What do we think about the final selections? What do we think of our chances to make a deep run in this tournament?
