Canada will see an experienced-side head into the third round of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia as Head Coach Benito Floro has selected 22 players that will take on Belize in a home-and-away series.

Ontario will once again have a big impact on the line-up with 13 players hailing from the province being called into camp.

The team begins training on August 31 in advance of the September 4 match at BMO Field in Toronto. Tickets to the match, presented by BMO, are available via starting at just $20. The match will also be broadcast across the country on

"I think that Belize is going to try to play a counterattacking style," said Floro. "We need to have a good level over the two games against them."

Following the home leg, Canada will then travel down to Belize for the second leg that takes place at FFB Field in the country's capital of Belmopan on Tuesday 8 September.

The winner of the series moves into the fourth round that gets underway in November.
