Sky Blue FC goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan was named to the 22-player team for the Tournoi de France, which was announced by Canada Soccer on Tuesday.
The competition will take place in Calais and Valenciennes from March 4-10. Canada will face France, Netherlands and Brazil, which will help the Maple Leafs to launch its preparation for the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer.
Canada will face France on March 4 at 11 a.m. ET, the Netherlands on March 7 at 1 p.m. Brazil on 10 March at 2 p.m. ET. The three matches will be held at Stade de l’Épopée in Calais, France.
Canada’s roster will feature all the players who recently helped Canada qualify for the Olympic Games for the fourth consecutive cycle at the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship. The team will also feature veteran Diana Matheson, who returns from injury for her first women’s national team project since March 2019, and center back Vanessa Gilles.
“This four-nation tournament will be a great opportunity for preparing ourselves for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games,” Canada head coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller said. “It is crucial as a program that we deliver a massive performance at the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in Japan. The tournament in France will give us the opportunity to face great oppositions and to measure ourselves against some of the top football teams in the world.”
