Canadian men’s national team coach Benito Floro is hopeful that he can negotiate the releases of a couple of MLS-based players for a pair of upcoming friendlies.

Floro said Thursday that going with an entirely European-based lineup for an upcoming camp in Austria — with friendlies against Bulgaria (May 23) and Moldova (May 27) — would leave the team short in two positions.

“I would need two MLS players for the two positions,” said Floro. “But we will have to depend on the MLS clubs if they will release them or not.”’

On the same day that Canada faces Bulgaria, Toronto FC — which has more Canadians on its roster than any other MLS team — is scheduled to face Sporting Kansas City. MLS has a full schedule in the May 23-25 period.

    Are there any Canadians actually starting on the three Canadian based MLS clubs? In terms of Canadian players getting valuable playing experience, is MLS of any value to Canadian football?
