While Canada's national soccer team won't be playing any important matches this calendar year, two of the most important individual milestones are likely to be surpassed.
MILESTONE #1: ALL TIME CANADA CAPS
While I no longer have much use for Paul Stalteri as a player for the national team, and I think the coaching staff should be exploring younger options for the right back position, I also think it would be somewhat of a slap in the face of they didn't allow him to reach the all-time matches played record. He currently needs three to tie Randy Samuel and I'd put his chances at even money to reach this number in 2010.
MILESTONE #2: ALL TIME CANADA GOALS
Canada's all time goal scoring record is currently held me nightmare coach Dale Mitchell, with a relatively paltry 19. Dwayne De Rosario and Ali Gerba both aren't far behind at 15. If either one were to open their account this Sunday with a goal or two against Jamaica, it would put them on track with a shot to reach 20 before the end of 2010.
De Ro's 15 have come in 52 matches, while Ali Gerba has done the deed in just 28 games.
