Canada v Greece: the roster so far

UPDATE 19:28CST 29.01.2011: Nik Ledgerwood added.

UPDATE 17:49CST 26.01.2011:
Tossaint Ricketts and Pedro Pacheco added.

From various and sundry sources, we now know of several names that have been selected to the likely 18-man roster for February 9th's friendly against Greece, now just over two weeks away.

I've been able to track down 5 names. I'd welcome leads on any others. Leave a post in the comments if you know of anybody else that has been selected.

The fab 5 to date (now 8!):
  • Jaime Peters (Ipswich Town FC, England) - midfield/rightback [source]
  • Will Johnson (Real Salt Lake, MLS) - midfield [source]
  • Olivier Occean (Kickers Offenbach, Germany) - forward [source]
  • Lars Hirschfeld (Valerenga Oslo, Norway) - keeper [source]
  • Milan Borjan (FK Rad, Serbia) - keeper [source]
  • Pedro Pacheco (Santa Clara, Portugal) - midfield [source]
  • Tosaint Ricketts (Politehnica Timi┼čoara, Romania) - forward [source]
  • Nik Ledgerwood (SV Wehen Wiesbaden, Germany) - defense/midfield [source]
The Voyageurs have been clamouring for Borjan to get a call from the moment they knew he existed so they'll be excited with that selection, especially considering how they are lapping up these recent quotes from the guy.

Keep checking this post for updates. I'd expect the official roster late this week.
