[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.

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).

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.
