Canada’s Concacaf Nations League Roster Unveiled

The Canadian men’s national team roster for two Concacaf Nations League matches at the end of the month has been unveiled.

The list of call-ups includes two former Canadian Premier League players in Dominick Zator and Victor Loturi, the latter of whom is a first-time call-up.

The Reds will play away away to Curacao on March 25 but will be at home in Toronto hosting Honduras on March 28.

The 23-man roster includes several members who journeyed to Qatar for the FIFA World Cup, with Les Rouges expected to enjoy quite a homecoming during their match in Toronto – though CF Montreal Captain Samuel Piette is a notable absence.

“This is just the start of the journey and we hope the fans that were there celebrating will support us on our first step towards our home FIFA World Cup preparations for 2026,” said head coach John Herdman, who will be speaking with media later today. 

Here’s the full breakdown of the Canadian national team roster called up for the two-match stretch:

GK- Milan Borjan | SRB / FK Crvena zvezda (Red Star Belgrade)
GK- Tom McGill | ENG / ENG / Brighton & Hove Albion U-21

Dominick Zator‘s inclusion comes after the former CPL defender inked a move to the Polish top flight in a bid to turn heads, with John Herdman now giving the strong, physical centre-back a golden opportunity to impress in a position where Canada perhaps needs the most reinforcing.

Ross County youngster Victor Loturi has ample competition in the middle of the park, but that never stopped the 21-year-old Calgarian from turning heads in Canada and Scotland. While still one for the future, it’s important that Herdman and the coaching staff get a close look at the former Cavalry midfielder.

Loturi won’t be the only player experiencing their first Canada call-up, with Bright and Hove Albion U-20 goalkeeper Tom McGill – who previously suited up for England at the youth level – also set to travel with the team.

The two matches come with Canada currently second in Concacaf Nations League A – Group C action. They’ve got a game in hand on first-place side Honduras, whom they’ll host in the second of the matchups.
