Nana Attakora joins Canadian national team

Attakora added to the Canadian national team roster for upcoming friendlies

Earthquakes defender Nana Attakora was called in to the Canadian men's national team earlier this week. He was added to the 22-man roster for the team's upcoming international friendlies. 

The squad, lead by head coach Benito Floro, sees its final two matches of the year on November 15 and November 19 in the Czech Republic and Slovenia, respectively. 

Attakora, 23, makes his return to the Canadian roster. Although he was added to the roster for this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup, he had to leave camp due to injury. Attakora suffered a concussion in May and saw his first minutes since the injury during an Earthquakes Reserve League match in October.
