James Pantemis and Samuel Piette Selected by Canada
MONTREAL - Goalkeeper James Pantemis and midfielder Samuel Piette were called up by Canada for its next FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers.
Canada, in first place in Group B, will face Aruba on Saturday, June 5, at 8pm and Suriname on Tuesday, June 8, at 9pm. John Herdman's team has to finish first of the group to qualify to the next round.
