Whitecaps FC Training - April 24th, 2011
While all of the starters, including Terry Dunfield who suffered a broken nose, were working out at 8-Rinks after a 2-1 loss to FC Dallas on Saturday, the rest trained at Empire Field.
Jay DeMerit warmed up with the team prior to joining the training staff on the side as he continues to rehab from his groin strain. He ran laps around Empire for the rest of the session. Bedri Gashi also worked out on the side.
Russell Teibert, Shea Salinas, Greg Janicki, Mouloud Akloul all continue to fully train and all look ready to be inserted into the line-up. Janicki and Akloul could both slot in Wednesday against Montreal, while Salinas and Teibert will likely come off the bench before regaining a starting role.
Michael Nachoff and John Thorrington were training fully, but both Nanchoff and Thorrington had to leave training early. Nanchoff with a left ankle injury and Thorrington with a right calf strain.
Joe Cannon worked out with goalkeeping coach Mike Salmon and 3rd GK Brian Sylvestre. During drills with the team, Cannon was his usual intense self. He looks primed and ready to get a start soon.
Other notables training today were Nizar Khalfan, Kevin Harmse, Long Tan and Omar Salgado.
Peter Vagenas was not at training and is back in California. No word from management regarding contract for him.
Next game for Vancouver is Wednesday in the Nutrilite Canadian Championships against the Impact in Montreal. Kickoff at 5pm - prematch show on TEAM 1410 is at 3pm with Tyler Green and David Norman. Listen online at www.teamradio.ca
