    Dasovic replaces Stalteri for Canada's World Cup qualifying

     OTTAWA (CP) -- Nick Dasovic will replace Paul Stalteri at midfield on the Canadian men's soccer team for the World Cup semifinal round qualifying game against Trinidad and Tobago on Sept. 3.

     That is the only roster change from the squad that lost 2-0 to Mexico on Aug. 15.

     Stalteri received his second yellow card of the round in that game and is suspended for the Trinidad and Tobago match.

     While the Toronto midfielder will be missed, his hot head won't be. He was captured in a photo giving captain Jason de Vos the finger during the game in Mexico.

     Dasovic plays for St. Johnstone of the Scottish Premier League and scored in Tuesday in a 3-0 win over Cowdenbeath in the CIS Cup.

     The Vancouver native has played for Canada in 45 international matches.

     Trinidad and Tobago leads Group C in the CONCACAF semifinal qualifying round with a maximum nine points from a 3-0-0 record. Mexico stands second with six points and a 2-1-0 record.

     Canada and Panama languish in the basement with one point from identical 0-2-1 records.

     The top two teams from the group, one of three in CONCACAF, will advance to the final round of qualifying in the region.

     Canada has no margin of error in its remaining three games, and it will need help from fellow doormat Panama to take points from its rivals.

     The maximum number of points Canada can collect is 10 and the next game in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, might determine its fate.

     Mexico is expected to hammer visiting Panama earlier that day.

     A loss or tie for Canada would eliminate the Canadians, who would then be able to finish with no more than seven points.
