Tristan Borges on CanMNT: ‘That’s always a goal for myself’
One of the more interesting questions of the CPL off-season is whether Tristan Borges will be back with Forge FC in 2020.
Borges, a 21-year-old native of Toronto, enjoyed a breakout campaign this year – his first as a professional – by scoring a league-high 13 goals and tallying five assists to help Forge hoist the North Star Shield.
“We’ll see, we’ll see, we’ll see, we’ll see,” Borges replied when asked at the awards ceremony if he would return to Forge in 2020.
The topic was raised again during an interview with TSN 690 Radio in Montreal this past weekend, with Borges deflecting.
He did, however, speak openly about his dream of representing Canada.
Borges has previously played for Canada at the under-17 and under-21 levels, including making three appearance for his country at the 2017 Concacaf U-20 Championship in Costa Rica. But he aspires to play for Canada at the senior team level.
“For me, one thing I can always say that always has been a goal for me growing up is the national team. That’s definitely one thing that’s always a goal for myself. If I can make my men’s national team (debut), that’s definitely something I always think about,” Borges told TSN 690.
