[MLS]The Vancouver Whitecaps' player list, one of the leanest in MLS heading into its expansion year, is much fuller with the signing of four players who've been with the team during preseason.

Striker Camilo da Silva Sanvezzo, midfielders Russell Teibert and Alexandre Morfaw, and center back Michael Boxall have signed league contracts, the terms of which were not disclosed. All four have been added to the roster and are eligible for the Whitecaps' first MLS game Saturday at Empire Field against cross-country rival Toronto FC.

Camillo, 22, had been on trial with Vancouver following professional stops in his native Brazil, Malta and South Korea. He joins Erik Hassli of Norway, Long Tanof China, U.S. youth international Omar Salgado, and MLS veteran Atiba Harris on the Vancouver cast of forwards.

Teibert, 18, is the team’s fourth Homegrown signing and a Generation adidas player who played for Vancouver in the USSF D-2 Pro League last year. He has represented Canada at the U-17 level and of the four signings is the only Canadian citizen.

Morfaw, 23, also played in the USSF D-2 Pro League last year. The product of the Nantes football academy and native of Cameroon appeared in six matches for Vancouver following two seasons in the lower divisions of Swedish soccer. He has played for Cameroon at the U-17, U-20, and U-23 international levels.

Boxall, 22, was passed over in the SuperDraft but the 'Caps took him with the No. 1 Supplemental Draft selection. The New Zealand international played 78 games for UC Santa Barbara the past four collegiate seasons and wore the Kiwis jersey at the 2007 FIFA -20 World Cup and the 2008 Olympic Games soccer competition.
