MOST COMMENTED

Six Toronto FC first-team players and one from TFC II have been called into Canada’s first training camp of the year.

Toronto FC defender Ashtone Morgan, midfielders Jay Chapman and Jonathan Osorio, forwards Tosaint Ricketts, Jordan Hamilton, and Mo Babouli and Toronto FC II forward Raheem Edwards are in a 28-man squad named by head coach Michael Findlay for training and a friendly match Jan. 22 in Hamilton, Bermuda, against the host nation.

Players from four other MLS teams, several USL squads, and two NASL teams were also summoned. FC Dallas midfielder Tesho Akindele and Orlando City mid Will Johnson are the only players from an MLS team south of the border picked by Findlay. Cyle Larin (Orlando City) and David Edgar (Vancouver Whitecaps) are injured.

"We want to give our players an early advantage heading into their preseasons, but also give our staff an opportunity to observe, evaluate, and educate a larger group of players," Findlay said in a press release. "This project also provides an internal competition within the larger group as only 18 will be selected for travel to the match."

Findlay took over from Benito Floro in October after Canada's elimination from 2018 World Cup qualifying.

Canada roster:
GOALKEEPERS. Marco Carducci (unattached), Callum Irving (Ottawa Fury), Sean Melvin (Vancouver Whitecaps 2).
DEFENDERS. Nana Attakora (San Francisco Deltas), Dejan Jakovic (unattached), Wandrille Lefevre (Montreal Impact), Jamar Dixon (Ottawa Fury), Nik Ledgerwood (FC Edmonton), Ashtone Morgan (Toronto FC), Karl Ouimette (unattached).
MIDFIELDERS. Tesho Akindele (FC Dallas), Kyle Bekker (unattached), Marco Bustos (Vancouver Whitecaps), Jay Chapman (Toronto FC), Marcel de Jong (Vancouver Whitecaps), Ben Fisk (FC Edmonton), Carl Haworth (Ottawa Fury), Will Johnson (Orlando City), Ben McKendry (Vancouver Whitecaps), Jonathan Osorio (Toronto FC), Adam Straith (unattached), Russell Teibert (Vancouver Whitecaps), Maxim Tissot (unattached).
FORWARDS. Molham Babouli (Toronto FC), Raheem Edwards (Toronto FC II), Jordan Hamilton (Toronto FC), Anthony Jackson-Hamel (Montreal Impact) Tosaint Ricketts (Toronto FC).
