Jakovic called up for Canada squad

Shimizu S-Pulse defender Dejan Jakovic has been selected to Canada’s squad for their upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the club announced on Saturday.

Canada will host Honduras on Friday, before traveling to face El Salvador next Tuesday.

The 30-year-old has 16 appearances for S-Pulse this season but failed to make an appearance since the middle of August under Kazuaki Tasaka.

S-Pulse secured their first win under their new manager at Montedio Yamagata on Saturday, although victory counted little for the already-relegated side.
