Good news on the international front for Chivas USA! Defender Ante Jazic has been called up to the Canadian Men's National Team for their upcoming 2014 World Cup Qualifiers. Jazic has become a fixture in Canada's defense since last fall, when he was recalled by head coach Stephen Hart, and he even captained the side in a friendly earlier this month against Trinidad & Tobago. Jazic has regularly been featuring in competitive matches as well, as he was involved in the earlier round of CONCACAF qualifiers prior to this current group stage, of which he's also been a part.
Canada will continue their quest to make the hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying by facing Panama home and away. Canada will host the Panamanians September 7 in Toronto at BMO Field, then will travel down to Panama to play again September 11.
It should be interesting, to say the least, and Canada will have to work hard to get some points on a rising team in Panama next month. Congrats to Ante, and best of luck!
