Canadian players excited for NWSL opportunities

+

Many of the players who talked to the media are extremely excited about possibly playing in the National Women’s Soccer League which is making it’s debut in the spring 2013. The players that arrived in Vancouver for the grueling boot camp are hoping that coach John Herdman selects them as one of the 16 Canadian players that will take up one of two spots on each of the 8 teams in the NWSL. Herdman has some tough decisions facing him and he’s hoping the United States Soccer Federation might extend his deadline so he can take a few extra days to make his big decisions. Herdman said this, when asked about when he might finally decide which 16 Canadian players earn a coveted spot in the NWSL: "We’ve got to put a roster in there by the December 21st with 16 players. There’s twenty-one of them that came back from the Olympics games with a bronze medal around their necks so it’s pretty hard to look beyond that group but we’ve also got to plan for the future. What’s got to be clear is 16 players will get a contract for a year this year, and they might not be the 16 that have got that contract in a year’s time, so they’ll be some transitional contracts and people are really going to have to hang on to them."
