11 Ontario Players Join Canada WNT For Cyprus Cup

By OSA News, 02/24/15, 2:30PM EST


The 2015 Cyprus Cup will be the final chance for Canada’s Women’s National Team to experience a tournament environment prior to June’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015.

Head Coach John Herdman has called in 24-players, 11 of which hail from Ontario, and just like every trip to Cyprus the team has a number of objectives going in.

This year, the goal is to develop cohesion and unity that will lead to results when it matters most.

“This Cyprus Cup has a clear outcome and that clear outcome is building that team cohesion similar to what we did in the Four Nations (in China) where we built a depth in the squad,” said Herdman. “In Cyprus, it’s about the cohesion in the group of players to go and win football matches.”

Playing out of Group A, Canada opens the tournament on Wednesday 4 March against Scotland at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia.
