Canada's soccer team looking to add American-born Rachel Quon

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Rising American star Rachel Quon has been asked to join the Canadian women’s soccer team for a friendly against the United States in June.

Coach John Herdman says she has a family connection that allows her to play for Canada and has accepted the invitation, although FIFA must still grant final approval.

Quon is a defender with the Chicago Red Stars in the National Women’s Soccer League and also plays with the United States under-23 team.

Her teammates on the Red Stars include Canadian national team keeper Erin McLeod and defender Carmelina Moscato.

Canada named its roster Wednesday for the June 2 friendly and, as expected, veterans play a major role.

Striker Melissa Tancredi returns for the first time since the 2012 Olympics and joins 13 other members of that bronze-winning team.
