David Edgar won his 11th cap for Canada last night and helped them to a clean sheet in their second World Cup Round 3 qualifier in the North, Central America and Caribbean Group.
This is one of three groups at this stage with the top two in each going through to Round 4 in a round robin tournament with the overall winners then entering a play off against a team from the Oceania group to determine who goes to Brazil for the finals in 2014.
Canada's next games come during the first international break of our 2012/13 season in early September when they will face league leaders Panama twice, first at home and then away four days later.
Elsewhere, former Burnley loan player Rhys Williams was expected to be named in Australia's team for their World Cup qualifier against Japan in Brisbane, a game that ended 1-1. He was named as a substitute but wasn't introduced and his wait for a tenth cap continues. Williams' last appearance for Australia was in November last year against Oman.
One former Claret who did win another cap was Leon Cort who was in the Guyana side that beat Costa Rica 4-0, giving Cort his sixth cap.
The INTERNATIONALS feature has been updated with Edgar's cap.
