Canada is in no rush to find its replacement for Benito Floro, having missed out on the next round of World Cup qualifying.

But it needs someone on the bench for expected Morocco-based friendlies against Mauritania and Morocco in October.

That man will reportedly be Floro’s assistant, Michael Findlay. The 52-year-old Manitoban joined the outgoing coach’s staff in 2014, after years in the national youth setup.


Findlay was a member of the national team staff under former head coach Frank Yallop for one camp in 2005 and went on to work in a number of youth team camps, largely in an assistant capacity, until he became a regular assistant coach under Floro starting in November 2013.
