TORONTO - Canadian men's soccer head coach Benito Floro will get his first look at his new team in game action next month when Canada plays a pair of friendlies against Mauritania.
The matches on Sept. 8 and Sept. 10 in Valencia, Spain, are part of Floro's first camp with the men's team.
Floro, a former manager with Real Madrid, was named as Canada's coach on July 5. He replaced Stephen Hart, who stepped down last October after Canada crashed out of World Cup qualifying with an 8-1 loss to Honduras.
The full roster will be announced in the week leading up to camp.
Canada has never faced Mauritania in an international friendly. The small African nation recently qualified for the 2014 African Nations Championship by surprising Senegal with a 2-0 win.
