Hapoel Haifa striker Tosaint Ricketts (UW-Green Bay) and his Canadian national teammates report to Cancun, Mexico, today to start a training camp that culminates in a friendly against Colombia on Oct. 14 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J.
The 27-year-old Ricketts has two goals in seven appearances for Hapoel Haifa this season after joining the Israeli club on a free transfer this summer. He's scored seven goals in 28 caps for Canada, which is 120th in the latest FIFA World Rankings.
Canada is coming off a 3-1 win over Jamaica on Sept. 9, a result that ended the side's 16-game winless streak. Colombia is ranked third in the world and advanced to the quarterfinals of the World Cup last summer in Brazil.
