Canada's men's soccer team opens its training camp for its March friendlies with four former SIGMA FC graduates on the roster- the most called into the senior national team at one time.

FC Dallas midfielder Kyle Bekker, Orlando City striker Cyle Larin, and defenders Manjrekar James of Hungary's Pecsi MFC and Johnny Grant of SIGMA FC will participate in the camp that began Sunday March 22nd.

"It is a fantastic feeling from within SIGMA FC to see our academy graduates plying their trade in the pro's but most importantly being able to represent Canada's national team. I am very proud of the guys and also very happy that they provide our younger players the ability to set high goals," SIGMA FC technical director Bobby Smyrniotis.

Larin, 19, the No.1 selection of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft by Orlando City SC made his professional debut over the weekend in a 1-0 loss to Vancouver. Larin almost scored the winner on two late opportunities, both set up by Kaka.

Grant, 21, is currently in camp with the Montreal Impact, having spent much of his time there training with the first team.

James, 21, has been an important player for his club coach Robert Jarni at Hungarian side Pesci MFC this season.

The March friends will serve as the last opportunity for Canada to assemble prior to the start of 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in June. In all, there are 23-players in camp for games against Guatemala and Puerto Rico.

"We have two priorities for this camp. The first is to work hard on tactical concepts like pressing, combined attacks, defense, and our offensive and defensive set pieces," said Floro. "At the same time, we need the psychological attitudes to get results. We need to have a good mentality."
