Carducci has previously represented Canada at the U17, U20 and U23 levels.
“Marco is deserving of this opportunity and has shown his high level ability game in game out this season in the CPL & our Canadian Championship run. He is the ultimate professional that has represented Canada at the youth levels and now gets the chance to be involved at the full international level, based on his club performances. Hopefully he’s blazing a trail for many other young Canadian players and showing the importance of playing in meaningful games week in week out”. – Tommy Wheeldon Jr. (Head Coach & General Manager, Cavlary FC).
“It is always a huge honour to have the opportunity to represent your country, so I’m very excited and proud to get the call up.
