Canada called up 20 players and three reserves for the 2007 Gold Cup, which starts on June 6.

Canada's 20-player roster includes six players from MLS teams -- three from Toronto FC two from the Los Angeles Galaxy and one from the Houston Dynamo -- and three USL players -- two from the Montreal Impact and Martin Nash, brother of NBA star Steve Nash, from the champion Vancouver Whitecaps. The only uncapped player is Antonio Ribeiro of the Impact.

Toronto FC captain Jim Brennan turned down an invitation to play for Canada to concentrate on MLS play.

Canada has brought in players (including reserves) from clubs in 13 different countries. It will gather in Florida, where it will train before heading down to Maracaibo, Venezuela, for an international friendly match against Venezuela on June 1.

Canada will be coached by Stephen Hart while newly appointed national team head coach Dale Mitchell concentrates on his duties as U-20 coach at the Under-20 World Cup Canada will host in June and July.

CANADA ROSTER:
Goalkeepers -- Greg Sutton (Toronto FC), Joshua Wagenaar (ADO, Netherlands).
Defenders -- Adam Braz (Toronto FC), Andrew Hainault (Siad Most, Czech Rep.), Ante Jazic (Los Angeles Galaxy), Marco Reda (Toronto FC), Paul Stalteri (Tottenham, England), Richard Hastings (Inverness CT, Scotland), Gabriel Gervais (Montreal Impact), Atiba Hutchinson (FC Copenhagen, Denmark);
Midfielders -- Julian De Guzman (Deportivo Coruna, Spain), Kevin Harmse (Los Angeles Galaxy), Patrice Bernier (Tromsoe, Norway), Martin Nash (Vancouver Whitecaps), Issey Nakajima-Farran (FC Vejle, Denmark), Antonio Ribeiro (Montreal Impact);
Forwards -- Dwayne De Rosario (Houston Dynamo), Rob Friend (Heerenveen, Netherlands), Ali Gerba (IFK Gothenburg, Sweden), Iain Hume (Leicester City, England);
Reserves -- Chris Pozniak (Toronto FC), Nik Ledgerwood (1860 Munich, Germany), Robert Giacomi (Beveren, Belgium).
