Canada and Panama in action

[GOLD CUP 2011 COUNTDOWN] Eleven of the 12 Gold Cup finalists -- every team except Guadeloupe -- will play at least one friendly during FIFA's double fixture dates. Panama, which the USA will face at the Gold Cup, will host Bolivia on Friday and then travel to Cuba on Tuesday. Canada, against which the USA opens in Detroit, will play at Belarus on Tuesday. Mexico will play Paraguay Saturday in front of a sellout crowd in Oakland, Calif., before heading down the coast to face Venezuela Tuesday in San Diego.

CANADA. Andre Hainault (Houston) and Will Johnson (Real Salt Lake) were the only MLS players called up by Canada, whose roster includes players based in eight different European leagues.

PANAMA. The Canaleros called up only four foreign-based players for Friday's game against Bolivia: Luis Moreno (Deportivo Pereira), Luis Tejada (Juan Aurich), Luis Henriquez (Lech Poznan) and Blas Perez (Mexico).

JAMAICA. Omar Cummings of MLS champion Colorado heads a group of five MLS players brought in for matches against Venezuela in Montego Bay and El Salvador away. Also called up were Khari Stephenson (San Jose), Dane Richards (New York), Jermaine Taylor (Houston) and Shavar Thomas (Sporting KC).
