ORLANDO, Fla. (January 10, 2017) - Orlando City SC midfielder Will Johnson has been called up to the 28-man Canada national team training camp in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., from Jan. 12-18, Canada Soccer announced today. Of the 28 players invited to the camp, 18 will be selected to travel to Bermuda for a friendly match on January 22.

“We want to give our players an early advantage heading into their pre-seasons, but also give our staff an opportunity to observe, evaluate, and educate a larger group of players,” said Michael Findlay, Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team Interim Head Coach. “This project also provides an internal competition within the larger group as only 18 will be selected for travel to the match.”

Johnson, who joined the Lions on Dec. 28, 2016, has earned 41 international caps since making his senior debut in 2005. The Toronto native has started 36 international matches, scoring four goals and seven assists. Johnson has represented Canada in two FIFA World Cup qualifying cycles and three CONCACAF Gold Cups.
