    Canada to join soccer's elite

     ZURICH (CP-AP) -- Canada will head to South Korea and Japan next year to take part in the Confederations Cup soccer tournament.

     FIFA announced the venues on Thursday, saying the tournament will serve as a test of their readiness for the 2002.

     Canada will be joined by the two host countries, defending champion Mexico and the other continental champions: Australia (Oeania), Brazil (South America), Cameroon (Africa) and France (Europe) in the eight-county field.

     Dates have yet to be finalized but FIFA said the event will probably take place in June 2001.

     Canada would then head to Colombia for Copa America, the South American championship scheduled for July 12-29.

     Canada won invitations to both tournaments by virtue of winning the Gold Cup in February.

     FIFA also announced that Spain will host next year's Club World Championships.

     Speaking during a meeting of the executive committee of world soccer's governing body, FIFA general secretary Michel Zen-Ruffinen said the world club event would take place in the summer of 2001, though the exact dates have not been determined.

     The event will feature 12 teams, four more than during this year's inaugural event in Brazil, which was won by the Brazilian side Corinthians.
