Canada Calls Up Three Reign Players For Friendlies

Martin Rose

The Reign are the most-represented club on the new Canadian Women's National Team.

While the Reign's US allocation has had a bit of a rough start for the franchise — with Amy Rodriguez out for the season, Megan Rapinoe in Europe until at least midseason, and Hope Solo out injured for at least the first few weeks — the Canadian contingent has quietly been rock solid. Seattle received midfielder Kaylyn Kyle and defender Emily Zurrer in their allocation and both put in significant minutes for their national team in the recent Cyprus Cup. The Reign later added Canadian forward Tiffany Cameron as a free agent.

All three players have been called up again to the national team for a pair of friendlies in Europe in early April. Of the 19 players called up, 15 are on NWSL rosters, illustrating the the new league is just as important to Canadian women's soccer as it us to the USWNT. No club other than the Reign has more than two players called up.

The team will play France on April 4 in Nice, then England on April 7 in Rotherham. The Reign season kicks off April 14 in Chicago.
