Canadian soccer Twitter reacts to Borges’ CanMNT call-up
Some big news came down in the Canadian soccer world on Friday, with the announcement that Forge FC star Tristan Borges will be joining fellow CPL players Marco Carducci (Cavalry FC) and Amer Didic (FC Edmonton) at this month’s Canadian men’s national team camp.
This is Borges’ first call-up to the national team, which he earned after a breakout CPL season, winning himself Player of the Year and Golden Boot honours as well as the inaugural league championship. He’ll be a part of John Herdman’s camp in California as they prepare to take on Barbados twice, as well as Iceland.
With the CPL’s brightest young star joining the national team for the first time, joining a number of fellow first-time call-ups, the Canadian soccer world took to Twitter.
Forge fans were delighted, of course.
As were onlookers from across the country.
With a younger camp roster, might we see an on-field debut for a CPLer?
With the Olympic qualifiers coming up, it’s not just the young CPLers catching people’s attention
