Mark-Anthony Kaye is one of five players recalled by the Canadian men’s team for its two-legged Concacaf Nations League qualifier later this month.
Interim coach Mauro Biello unveiled his 23-man roster on Wednesday which included Kaye, a former Toronto FC midfielder who is back in Canada’s squad for the first time in eight months. Also returning for the Canadian team are midfielders Stephen Eustáquio and Ali Ahmed, winger Tajon Buchanan and forward Lucas Cavallini.
Canada has been drawn directly into the quarter-final stage of the 2023-24 Concacaf Nations League and will play Jamaica in a two-game series to see who qualifies for next year’s finals. The first leg is Nov. 17 in the Jamaican capital of Kingston with the return match slated for Toronto’s BMO Field four days later.
The four quarter-final winners also qualify for next year's Copa América. The four losers will square off in two single-legged playoff games to see who moves on to the South American championship. The U.S. is hosting the tournament next summer with 10 CONMEBOL teams plus the six best Concacaf nations as guests.
