In the latest edition of the TFC Republic video blog, I look at the Canadian women's team roster for this summer's Tokyo Olympics.
Captain Christine Sinclair headlines a Canadian squad made up of 18 players (and four alternates) that features several other veterans and a number of youngsters.
There are also some omissions from the main 18-player roster, the most notable ones being the absences of veteran midfielder Sophie Schmidt and Jordyn Huitema.
Here's what Priestman had to say about her decision making in naming her roster:
“The main thing for me is not to get caught up in the past or the future, what players can or could be. I needed to use my time in the role, and the way that I want to play, and assess who’s performing now. Ultimately, we’re going to an Olympics that’s happening less than a month from now, and I wanted to pick players on form.”
