Canada’s Men’s National Team is about to head for Spain for its first camp under the tutelage of new head coach Benito Floro.
Floro, who was brought onboard by the Canadian Soccer Association as the men’s national team’s sideline boss on July 5, will get his first in-depth look at the group of players he currently has available for selection. The full roster will be selected during the week leading up to camp.
The Canadian men have never squared off against Mauritania in an International Friendly.
However, the small African nation recently became one of the five squads that qualified for the 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) by sending Senegal on its way with a surprising 2-0 win.
It will be Mauritania’s first ever participation in the finals of an African football tournament.
