Canada goalkeeper and captain Borjan out for remainder of Gold Cup


Canada captain Milan Borjan will miss the rest of the CONCACAF Gold Cup with an undisclosed injury.

Canada Soccer says the goalkeeper has returned to Europe so that he can recover ahead of the 2023-24 club season.

Borjan was in goal for Canada’s 2-2 draw with Guadeloupe on Tuesday in Toronto and its 0-0 draw with Guatemala in Houston on Saturday.

With two points from two matches, Canada must win its Group D finale against Cuba on Wednesday to advance to the Gold Cup quarterfinals.

Borjan leads the national men’s team in matches by a goalkeeper with 77 and clean sheets with 35.

The 35-year-old has played club football with Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade since 2017, though was loaned to Slovakia’s Slovan Bratislava last month.
