Canadian soccer coach calls up 4 newcomers for U.S. camp

Canadian soccer coach Benito Floro has called up four newcomers for a camp ahead of a Feb. 5 friendly with the United States.

The four making their debut are goalkeepers Tyson Farago and Callum Irving, centre back Steven Vitoria and midfielder Jamar Dixon.

Farago, 24, and Irving, 22, have been part of Canada's youth program, while Vitoria, 29, and Dixon, 26, are new to the program.

Born in Toronto to Portuguese parents, Vitoria played 15 games for the Philadelphia Union last season on loan from Portugal's Benfica.

Dixon is a midfielder with Finland's FF Jaro while Farago plays for FC Edmonton. Irving is an all-American who went undrafted in the recent MLS SuperDraft.

There are recalls for defender Doneil Henry and midfielder-forward Iain Hume.

The squad also includes two teenagers from the Vancouver Whitecaps: 19-year-old midfielders Kianz Froese and Marco Bustos.

The game against the U.S. in Carson, Calif., will help Canada prepare for World Cup qualifiers against Mexico in March.

Eleven of the 23 players chosen play for clubs in Canada.
