    Canada makes final preparations

     WINNIPEG (CSA) -- Canada's Men's World Cup Team is in final preparations for its upcoming World Cup Qualifying game against Cuba at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex on June 11 at 7:00 p.m. local time. The game will be broadcast live by CTV Sportsnet who will again send their crew to cover the game live as they did in Havana.

     Canadian defender Paul Fenwick has signed with Hibernian of the Scottish Premier League. Fenwick had finished the season with First Division Raith Rovers. He has played in each of Canada's last three games and is expected to take his usual place at right back on Sunday.

     Three players missed training with mild injuries yesterday. Garret Kusch (charlie horse), Richard Hastings (thigh strain) and Carl Fletcher (calf). All three players are expected to be fit for selection on Sunday.

     Cuba will arrive in Toronto on Friday night and will arrive in Winnipeg on Saturday. They are tentatively scheduled to practice at the Complex at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.

     Canada is scheduled to practice at the Complex at 4:00 p.m. Friday and 4:00 p.m. Saturday.

     Close to 6,000 tickets have been sold for Sunday's game.

     Any yellow or red cards picked up in this round of qualifying will carry over to the semi-final round.

     A win or a tie will see Canada through to the semi-final round. If Cuba wins 1-0, two 15-minute extra-time periods will be played (with the golden goal rule in effect). If the game is still tied, it will go to penalty kicks. If Cuba wins and scores two goals or more, they will advance on the away goals rule.
