Cosmos central defender Dejan Jakovic was named to Canada’s 23-man roster for its international friendly against Curacao at Stade Saputo in Montreal Tuesday.

Head Coach Octavio Zambrano selected his squad from an extended 28-man roster that trained this week in Laval, Canada.

“The new guys have adapted well while the veterans can see a path that, if we stay on it, we can get some results,” Zambrano said in a statement. “You can start to see what the young guys can bring to the National Team, but you can also see why the experienced players are still part of the team. It is a good combination and a well balanced team.”
