Forward Cyle Larin and defender Vanessa Gilles have been named Canada Soccer’s Players of the Month for March.
Larin scored three goals in two games for Canada, while Gilles helped Olympique Lyonnais advance to the Coupe de France Féminine final.
Larin scored once against Curaçao and twice against Honduras in CONCACAF Nations League victories, bringing his Canadian men’s goalscoring record to 28. The 27-year-old from Brampton, Ontario also scored four goals in three games for the Real Valladolid of Spain.
Gilles played every minute of league-leading Olympique Lyonnais’ March games, recording an assist in the semifinal game to set up a showdown with rival Paris Saint-Germain on May 4.
The 27-year-old from Ottawa is currently in camp with sixth-ranked Canada ahead of an April 11 friendly with No. 5 France at Le Mans.
