Impact midfielder Maxim Tissot is part of the 35-man provisional roster named by the Canadian men’s national team for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which will be played in July in the U.S. and Canada.
Tissot is currently with the Canadian team for the home and away series versus Dominica on June 11 in Roseau and June 16 in Toronto, for the second round of qualification games for the 2018 World Cup.
He’s played four games, including three starts, with the Canadian national team, making his debut on January 16, 2015, against Iceland. He earned his first invitation in November 2014, in a friendly against Panama, but did not play.
The final roster of 23-players will be announced at a later date. Canada will assemble at the end of June in Santa Barbara, California prior to the tournament’s opening game.
Canada will open the Gold Cup on Wednesday, July 8, against El Salvador at StubHub Center in Carson, California, USA. Then, they head to Houston to take on Jamaica on July 11, before coming to Toronto to take on Costa Rica at BMO Field on July 14.
The 2015 Gold Cup champion will face the U.S., champions of the 2013 edition, in a playoff game to determine the CONCACAF representative at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.
