Rovers goalkeeper Jayson Leutwiler has been named in the Canada squad for their upcoming friendly with New Zealand.

Leutwiler has been called up as part of a 22-man squad for a training camp in Murcia, Spain, and international friendly against New Zealand on Saturday, March 24.

The 28-year-old, who has kept three clean sheets in three caps for his country, is yet to make a league appearance for Rovers since his summer move from Shrewsbury Town.

His four outings so far this season have all come in the FA Cup.

He is the fifth Rovers player to be called up by their country ahead of the international round of fixtures following Darragh Lenihan, Derrick Williams, Charlie Mulgrew and Derrick Williams.

That means the trip to Doncaster Rovers on March 24 is in doubt. 

The game is Canada’s first of 2018 and boss John Herdman said: “This match provides a great opportunity to be face to face with members of the men’s national team programme and establish the foundations and relationships that will align Canada’s men’s national team programme towards a goal of consistent winning performances.

“The players believe that we can do this and that with the right plan we can deliver.

“Our players are looking forward to making that commitment and pushing themselves to levels that they have never reached before.”
