Canada vs. Martinique, 2013 Gold Cup: Preview and TV schedule –

Martinique are not a member of FIFA and do not compete in World Cup qualifying. A team in a similar situation, Guadeloupe, has previously been a fixture in this competition. Martinique are made up of mostly semi-professional and amateur players, but have a number of professionals from the French third division.

Canada have recently appointed a new coach, but he won’t be in charge of the team for this tournament. Benito Floro, who has enjoyed previous stops at Real Madrid and Villarreal, will watch from the stands as Colin Miller takes control of the team. Previous manager Stephen Hart resigned nine months ago following an embarrassing 8-1 defeat to Honduras, and Canada took their time with their new appointment, waiting on a big name who viewed the job as a destination, not a stepping stone. via –
