Montreal Impact veteran midfielder Bernier looks forward to 50th Canadian cap

Canada vs Jamaica

TORONTO _ The last time midfielder Patrice Bernier wore Canadian colours, he watched helplessly from the bench as Canada was humiliated 8-1 in Honduras.

Almost two years on, Bernier is looking to make some more pleasant national team memories.

The 34-year-old Montreal Impact player is in line for his 50th cap as Canada hosts Jamaica in an international friendly Tuesday at BMO Field.

The game is the first on Canadian soil for coach Benito Floro, who took over the team in August 2013.

Canada is mired in a 16-game winless streak that dates back to October 2012 and searching for its first win in seven games under Floro’s leadership.
