[WOMEN'S WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Concacaf champion Canada will take one of the most experienced teams to the Women's World Cup. Christine Sinclair, who ranks fifth all-time in the world with 116 goals, is one of four Canadians with 100 or more caps, and goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc is headed to the finals for the fourth time.

Sinclair (159 caps), Diana Matheson (122), Brittany Timko (101) and Rhian Wilkinson (100) are all part of Canada's century club.

Sinclair, LeBlanc Matheson, Timko and Rhian Wilkinson are all taking part in their third FIFA Women's World Cup.

Besides Sinclair (Western New York) and McLeod (magicJack), Kelly Parker (Atlanta) plays in WPS.

Canada's youngest players are Rutgers rising sophomore Jonelle Filigno (20) and UCLA transfer Chelsea Stewart (just turned 21).

Stewart, who attended high school at Mountain Vista in Colorado and Shattuck-St. Mary's in Minnesota, is the daughter of former NFL star Bill Stewart.

Filigno, Stewart and Jodi-Ann Robinson (West Florida) currently attend U.S. colleges, and 16 of the other 18 players on the Canadian team are products of the U.S. college ranks.

Canada Roster:
Goalkeepers: Karina LeBlanc (free agent), Erin McLeod (magicJack), Stephanie Labbe (Pitea, Sweden).
Defenders: Emily Zurrer (Vancouver Whitecaps), Robyn Gayle (Vancouver Whitecaps), Candace Chapman (Western New York Flash), Brittany Timko (free agent), Marie-Eve Nault (Ottawa Fury).
