Gold Cup: Canada's Larin recalled for knockout stage

Canada has recalled Orlando City star Cyle Larin for the knockout stage of the Gold Cup, where it will play for the first time since 2009. He had been excluded from the initial roster following his arrest on a a misdemeanor DUI charge in Florida.

Less than two weeks after his DUI arrest and suspension, Larin was cleared to return to action. He continued to be counseled by doctors in MLS's Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program.

Larin missed three MLS games -- a 3-3 tie with Montreal and 1-1 tie with Seattle and 4-0 loss at Chicago.

Coach Octavio Zambrano's team for the quarterfinals includes nine MLS players, three players each from Montreal (Maxime Crepeau, Anthony Jackson-Hamel and Patrice Bernier) and Vancouver (Russell Teibert, Alphonso Davies and Marcel de Jong), two from Toronto FC (Tosaint Ricketts and Jonathan Osorio), plus Larin. Raheem Edwards returned to TFC.

The 16-year-old Davies, the youngest player Canada has ever called up for the Gold Cup, had scored three of its five goals.

    I am glad they put him back on the roster.Everyone has made poor choices in there lives. He is young and can learn from past mistakes. I hope he helps Canada.
