     OTTAWA -- Canadian Men's World Cup team head coach Holger Osieck today released the 18-man roster for the upcoming World Cup Semi-Final Round Qualifying game against Mexico at Azteca Stadium on August 15. Kick-off is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. local time (3:00 p.m. EST).

     Midfielder Marc Bircham of Millwall in the English First Division is the only addition to the team which assembled for the Trinidad and Tobago and Panama games. Bircham rejoins the World Cup team for the first time since suffering a serious ankle injury prior to the Gold Cup. He last played for Canada on September 2, 1999 in a 2-0 win over Jamaica.

     Goalkeeper Craig Forrest continues to recover from his hernia operation in May and will not be available. He is in pre-season training with West Ham United. Seventeen of the 20 players who assembled for the T and T and Panama games are on the roster.
