FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution midfielder Tajon Buchanan has been named to the Canada Men’s National Team roster for its January 2021 training camp, Canada Soccer announced today.
The January camp in Bradenton, Fla., which runs from Jan. 9-24, will mark the first national team experience for Buchanan, the 2020 Canadian Men’s Youth International Player of the Year. In March 2020, he received his first call-up as one of 20 players selected to represent Canada at the Concacaf Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship. However, the tournament was postponed. Canada’s January camp will feature two scrimmages as well as a Canada intra-squad scrimmage as the group prepares for upcoming FIFA Men’s World CupTM Qualifiers and Concacaf Olympic Qualifiers in March.
Buchanan, 21, is entering his third season with New England having made 33 league appearances across his first two professional campaigns, with two goals and four assists. The Brampton, Ontario native led all Canadians in MLS appearances with 23 during the 2020 season, finishing as one of two Revolution players to see action in every regular season game. He started all four of the club’s games during the 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs at the right back position.
