McLeod & Chapman Both Called Up For Tournament

Chris LaFrance-USA TODAY Sports

With the Cyprus Cup taking place March 4th through the 11th, Canada Soccer released the latest roster with both Erin McLeod and Allysha Chapman called up. Both players were included in the Bao'an Cup, with Chapman playing in all three games for a combined 205 minutes, tallying one assist. McLeod did not play in that tournament, while Stephanie Labbe proved to be a capable backup.

The roster also sees Selenia Iachelli return to play, as well as Christina Julien, who recently played in Germany after playing in the 2011 Women's World Cup and was an alternate in the 2012 Olympic team.

Canada will play Scotland March 4th, Korea Republic March 6th, and end group stage against Italy on March 9th. The final match will take place on the 11th. Per Canada Soccer, these matches will not be available for streaming, but will be live-tweeted instead.
