Canadian soccer fans were taken aback this week by news that TFC development player Gabe Gala did not make the final cut for Canada’s u-20 team. It was especially stunning news in that Gala was one of the better players during a u-20 friendly with Argentina last year.

However, Gala’s omission isn’t looked at as surprising by those close to the team. There it is viewed as refreshing that Gala was cut and a sign that head coach Tony Fonseca is running a tight ship. It’s being widely suggested that Gala showed up to camp badly out of shape and was unable to keep up fitness wise.

Unfortunately for Gala it’s now being suggested that his future with TFC is being “re-evaluated” next week. Hopefully, there is still room for the young player who at one time was seen as the best prospect in the GTA (a position now held by relative late bloomer Nana Attakora).

Gala or no, the u-20 team’s confidence is high heading into the event. They feel that they have the talent to qualify to the Finals for a fifth straight tournament. The one equalizer, however, is the humidity in T&T. Those with the team say that it is nearly unbearable.
