Canada soccer has named their 2019 January camp roster ahead of their two matches in Europe later this month. Canada will take on Switzerland on Jan. 17 and Norway on Jan. 22 in La Manga.
Nine NWSL players were named to the training camp roster ahead of the two matches in Spain.
Sabrina D’Angelo (North Carolina Courage), Kailen Sheridan (Sky Blue FC), Lindsay Agnew (Houston Dash), Allysha Chapman (Houston Dash), Shelina Zadorsky (Orlando Pride), Rebecca Quinn (Washington Spirit), Desiree Scott (Utah Royals FC), Nichelle Prince (Houston Dash) and Christine Sinclair (Portland Thorns FC).
“This year is all about preparing for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, so we are eager to get together in Europe and continue the momentum we built throughout 2018,” head coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller said in a press release. “Switzerland and Norway are both difficult sides, so these two matches will serve as an excellent opportunity to test ourselves against strong European opponents.”
