Cap tie him in September before he spurns us for Liberia sort of
Bryan Cristante (Italy) is one as well as some youth players like Josh Doughty (US/England) and Fikayo Tomori (England) Cistante is similar to a guy like Vitoria in that he may play for Canada eventually but its predicated on him not being good enough to be called up to Italy
Davies doesn't even have Canadian citizenship yet so he's still not eligible for Canada at the senior level (believe he has been called to youth squads).
Hopefully he has his citizenship soon.
As for Christsnte I've heard he wants to play for Italy, and we should get Doughty and Tomori, but we'll need some luck.
There's also Joey Cowlishaw...
Is Caniggia Elva any good ?
Tomori just played for England U-19's.
Elva is 20 years old and still hasn't played above 3.B so I wouldn't get carried away with him either.
not confir.ed but Larin to Benfica
Ohhhhh **** really ?
portuguese source, usually accurate ill post link when i get home but lokr i daid not confirmed
basically Benfica says its a done deal, Orlando said its not true and has no contact with benfica
That would be great for Larin.
Women's tourney kicks off for Canada in about 35 mins or so
Starting Tancredi and Matheson though lmao
Sinclair is unreal
Are Davies and Ballou the best young offensive talents we've produced ?
They've both accomplished nothing in their careers so far
^ Cyle Larin is a generational Player from a CMNT standpoint. We've never had a young striker as prolific as him in a Good league Since Radzinski.
I would Consider Davies a class above anything we've produced. Potential Wise obviously. He's going to end the season with 10+ MLS appearances and has been dynamic not for his his age but this level when he's played so far. And he's 15 till October
Labbe plays locally here for the Washington Spirit (as well as Diana Matheson). Wishing her the best of luck this Olympics.
Yeah, and in a spurt where we really produced few talents, maybe Osorio, Morgan and Henry ? Really not much came for that age group.
We need to cap tie Ballou and Davies, I don't think we're ever had players with their creative abilities. They can unlock the D.
The future is starting to look bright.
How's Hanson Boakkai doing ? He's another attacking talent to watch.
Just read that Boakkai is 5'4"?!? Unless he's supremely skilled (Like Xavi skilled) that won't cut it in Europe.
^5"5 and under is doable if you have supreme talent, or a tireless and fearless mentality. He has neither
Canadian women in the semis at the olympics is huge.
Just about two weeks away from a huge match for us.
Everyone healthy I hope?
JDG likely out for the qualifiers:
Roster is being announced today.
