Last week, Canadian Soccer Association President (and CONCACAF President, too) Victor Montagliani said a solution to the Canadian-as-domestics question is close to being resolved.

Montagliani has been battling for years for MLS and NASL to change their current roster rules, which allow for American players to be treated as domestics on the rosters of Canadian teams, but that Canadian players take up precious international roster spots on the American teams.

Look at the 40 Canadians who have played in MLS and NASL this year. Only six currently play on American teams.

Mason Trafford (Miami FC); Cyle Larin, (Oriando City); Drew Beckie (Carolina); Nana Attakora (Fort Lauderdale); Tesho Akindele (FC Dallas); Karl Ouimette (Jacksonville on loan from New York Red Bulls).

Six. Compare that to the number of Americans playing as domestics on the five Canadian MLS and NASL teams.

And, of those six, it’s worth noting that at least four of them don’t take up international spots. Trafford was born in the U.S. but is a Canadian citizen; Akindele and Beckie were born in Canada, but grew up in the United States (Akindele is a dual citizen, Beckie has his green card). And, according to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, Attakora also has legal status in America to be counted as a domestic. So, when you take out the Canadians who, by circumstances, have status to work in the United States, well you can see how the current rules prevent Canadians without the luxury of American status to get work in leagues that are supposedly North American in nature,
