"It will be another good opportunity to get the squad together in light of this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup," said Canadian national head Stephen Hart.
The 29 March match takes place on an official FIFA International Date. Coach Hart plans to call 18 players to the squad, with some players arriving as early as 21 March depending on their club schedules.
Canada opened the 2011 season in Larissa, Greece on 9 February. Following the 29 March match in Turkey, Canada hopes to organize another match for the next FIFA International Date on 1 June. Canada then opens its 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign on 7 June against USA in Detroit, MI, USA. Canada’s three group opponents this summer are USA on 7 June, Guadeloupe on 11 June (Tampa, FL), and Panama on 14 June (Kansas City, KS).
