Former Maryland men’s soccer goalkeeper Dayne St. Clair made the 2022 FIFA World Cup roster for the Canadian national team, it was announced Sunday.
St. Clair played for the Terps for two years and was a pivotal part of their 2018 national title run. In the 2018 NCAA Tournament, he didn’t give up a single goal, earning him the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Tournament Most Outstanding Player award. Most notably, St. Clair did not let up a goal for the final 500 minutes of the 2018 season, which is one of the greatest feats in Maryland men’s soccer’s rich history.
St. Clair went on to play for Minnesota United in the MLS and was named to the 2022 MLS All-Star team and was the game’s Most Valuable Player. St. Clair made his debut for the Canadian national team in the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
St. Clair is the sixth Terp to travel to the FIFA World Cup, the last one being Rodney Wallace in 2018 for the Costa Rican national team.
Canada will open against Belgium on Nov. 23 at 2 p.m.
