Kansas City Current Captain Desiree Scott named to roster for Canada Soccer November friendlies against Brazil

Kansas City Current captain and midfielder Desiree Scott has been named to Canada Soccer’s roster for a pair of friendlies against Brazil. Canada will travel to first play Brazil Friday Nov. 11 at Vila Belmiro, in Santos, and conclude the series Tuesday Nov. 15 at Química Arena, in São Paulo. Both matches are scheduled to kick off at 12:15 p.m. CT. 

“The group is excited to get back together again for one last push of 2022 against a top team,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team Head Coach. “With some of the roster realities it provides us with an opportunity to invite and assess some young talent who recently represented Canada at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. 2022 has really given me the opportunity to develop squad depth for 2023 and 2024, which is fantastic and exactly what we know helps teams be successful in tournament football.”

With 184 appearances for Canada, Scott ranks fourth in the country’s history. She has been a member of three FIFA World Cup teams (2011, 2015, 2019) and has two Olympic Bronze medals (London 2012, Rio 2016) and an Olympic Gold medal (Tokyo 2020).

Canada won all the team’s matches in the September and October international windows. In a two-match September series against Australia, Canada earned 1-0 and 2-1 victories. The team then followed up those performances in the October international window with back-to-back wins, defeating Argentina 2-0 and Morocco 4-0. 

This camp will mark the first international window since the Official Draw for the FIFA World Cup Oct. 22 in Auckland, New Zealand, where Canada learned more about the path that lies ahead of the biggest tournament in the world. Canada’s schedule begins with Nigeria on Friday, July 21 in Melbourne, continues with Republic of Ireland on Wednesday July 26 in Perth, and finishes with Australia on Monday July 31 in Melbourne.

Scott is one of eight Canada players based in the National Women’s Soccer League alongside Kailen Sheridan of San Diego Wave FC, Sophie Schmidt and Nichelle Prince of Houston Dash, Bianca St-Georges of Chicago Red Stars, Quinn and Jordyn Huitema of OL Reign, and Christine Sinclair of Portland Thorns.

The rest of the Canada squad features returning players based in Europe includes Kadeisha Buchanan of Chelsea FC, Sabrina D’Angelo of Vittsjö GIK, Jessie Fleming of Chelsea FC, Julia Grosso of Juventus FC, Cloé Lacasse of SL Benfica, Clarissa Larisey of Glasgow Celtic FC, Adriana Leon of Manchester United FC, Marie Levasseur of Fleury FC, Lysianne Proulx of SCU Torreense, Evelyne Viens and Gabrielle Carle of Kristianstads DFF, Sura Yekka of Le Havre AC, and Shelina Zadorsky of Tottenham Hotspur.
