Eleven NWSL players have been named to Canada’s roster ahead of the June friendlies vs. Costa Rica during the upcoming FIFA window. Canada will host Costa Rica on June 8 in Winnipeg and June 11 in Toronto.
All three goalkeepers on the roster are from the NWSL: Stephanie Labbé (Washington Spirit), Sabrina D’Angelo (North Carolina Courage) and Kailen Sheridan (Sky Blue FC). Sheridan and Labbé are first and second in the league, respectively, for saves. D’Angelo has turned in three clean sheets so far this season for North Carolina.
Canada’s forwards will feature four NWSL players: Janine Beckie and Nichelle Prince (Houston Dash), Adriana Leon (Boston Breakers) and Christine Sinclair (Portland Thorns FC). Leon (one goal, three assists so far this season) was the Week 3 NWSL Player of the Week. Beckie scored the game-winning goal in Canada’s win over Sweden in April.
The Spirit have two defenders on the roster: Lindsay Agnew and Shelina Zadorsky. They are joined by Boston Breakers defender Allysha Chapman. Agnew earned her first cap for the senior team at the Algarve Cup in March.
There are no NWSL games the weekend of June 10-11. NWSL games will resume on Saturday, June 17.
