    Lineup's a secret

    By SCOTT ZERR -- Edmonton Sun

     EDMONTON -- Holger Osieck is sticking by his policy and keeping his Canadian lineup under wraps.

     That obviously means he's not going to reveal which defender is in for a tough time keeping track of Trinidad and Tobago striker Dwight Yorke.

     And Osieck is also not letting it slip who will be among the rest of his starting 11 other than former Edmonton Driller Pat Onstad getting the call between the pipes.

     "Basically, I'll select from 14 players. There might be some where I have two players for one position and I'll have to look how it's going and who impresses me," said Osieck, who was pleased with the team's development at its training camp in Alliston, Ont., but didn't come away with any shocking revelations.

     "I know them all and I've been around for almost two years now, so I know everything about them.''

     IMPORTANT HOME DATES: In the four-team qualifying pool which is surely to be tightly contested, Canada has to pick up the lion's share of the points available in their home games.

     The Canucks won't be in utter peril should they only get a draw tonight, but a full three points is as close to a must as it can get.

     "We have our home game and then we have three on the road -- very difficult ones," said Osieck.

     "To play on the road in Central America or the Caribbean, their home advantage is definitely more in their favour than our home advantage is in our favour here."
