Toronto FC youngsters Nana Attakora-Gyan and Gabe Gala have been named in the Canada U-20 squad for the final training camp ahead of next month’s CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Trinidad and Tobago. They will join up with the Canada squad in Florida later this week.

Attakora-Gyan was named the recipient of the Canadian U-20 Player of the Year Award for the 2008 season. Both Attakora-Gyan and Gala were members of the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup team. They were also involved in three friendly matches in various locations in 2008 that saw Canada face opponents such as Argentina, the Swiss Confederation, and the United States.

The U-20s will meet in Sunrise, Florida before heading off to Macoya, Trinidad & Tobago on March 4th. Canada’s first game in the tournament is March 7th against Trinidad & Tobago. The top two teams in the four-team group advance to the March 13th semi-final. They also qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Egypt 2009. Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico and Trinidad & Tobago are the four teams in Group B.
