Shamit Shome started and played the full 90 for Canada’s U-20s when they beat England’s U-20s 2-1 in late March.

This past weekend, the Edmonton teenager made his pro debut, playing 80 minutes in FC Edmonton’s 1-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rowdies. While FCE coach Colin Miller was bitterly disappointed by the result, he had nothing but praise for Shome’s performance, saying that the 18-year-old was “excellent” in the midfield. Shome, was signed by the big club before the season, and his pro debut was one of the real Canadian highlights of the weekend.

As well, at the USL level, the match between FC Montreal and Wilmington needs to be highlighted. Save for a 15-minute sub appearance by Swiss player Fabio Morelli, FC Montreal used only Canadian players in the game. And, that has only extended FC Montreal’s commanding lead over the USL field when it comes to the average minutes played by Canadians per match. We have often been critical of FC Montreal’s parent club, the Impact, when it comes to playing Canadians. But, to show fair is fair, we need to highlight how dedicated their developmental team is when it comes to giving Canadians minutes on the pitch.

But, it was another Canadian who had the last laugh in that match. John Smits, Wilmington’s Canadian keeper, recorded the clean sheet in a 2-0 win. Smits leads all Canadian players in USL in terms of minutes played.
