Canada’s roster for the Algarve Cup was announced this morning, with coach John Herdman making two changes to his squad that qualified Canada for the Olympics.

Erin McLeod, whose move to FC Rosengard in Sweden was made official this week, is unavailable for the Algarve Cup due to club commitments. Goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan, who most recently represented Canada at the 2015 Pan Am Games, was named to the squad to replace McLeod.

20-year-old forward Summer Clarke is the only other addition to the squad.

Canada is in Group A and will play Denmark on March 2, Belgium on March 4, and Iceland on March 7. Portugal, New Zealand, Russia, and Brazil are in Group B. Canada last competed in the Algarve Cup in 2003.
