Canada adds Larin to Gold Cup roster, Edwards dropped

The Orlando City striker will join up with his country for the knockout stages of the CONCACAF tournament

Canada has made just one of the allowed six changes to its Gold Cup roster, calling in Orlando City striker Cyle Larin and sending Raheem Edwards back to Toronto FC. 

Larin has scored eight goals in 17 matches for Orlando in MLS this season and joins a Canadian side that netted five in its three group matches. 

USA makes six squad changes

The 22-year-old has five goals for his country in 20 appearances. 

Canada finished second in Group A behind Costa Rica and will face the runner-up from Group C at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Thursday.

Larin missed most of June after being arrested on a DUI charge, sitting out three games for Orlando before being cleared to return to action by MLS’ Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program.
