Canada unveils U17 camp roster

OTTAWA - The Canadian Soccer Association announced Thursday the roster for its men's under-17 national team camp February 5-15 in Sunrise, Florida, and Costa Rica.

Canada will train for five days in Florida before heading to Central America for a pair of friendly matches against the Costa Ricans on February 12 and 14.

For head coach Sean Fleming, the gathering represents an opportunity to make some final tweaks before the team takes part in the 2013 CONCACAF Under-17 Championship in Panama, April 6-19.

"This will be our last camp before the CONCACAF Championship," said Fleming. "We have two new players coming in and we look forward to a pair of great matches in Central America against Costa Rica.

"This will be an opportunity for us to make some final changes and improvements; and focus on building the team's chemistry ahead of the qualifiers in April."

The two new players being introduced to the squad are forwards Luca Uccello and Derek Cornelius.
