Toronto FC fullback Richie Laryea will be making his first career start for the Canadian Men’s National Team.

The defender was recalled by Canada’s national team on Aug. 26 for the two upcoming CONCACAF Nations League A matches against Cuba.

This season, Laryea has broken through with the TFC after signing with the MLS side on Mar. 21 following Orlando City’s decision to decline his contract option. In 20 appearances, Laryea has contributed one goal and four assists while providing Toronto with some much-needed pace and creativity down the wing.

Toronto FC’s Jonathan Osorio also gets the start tonight for Canada. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. ET.

Good luck Richie and Oso!
