Colin Miller will be on the bench with Canada’s men’s soccer team at the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

“I feel very privileged and grateful to have been chosen to lead Canada into this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup,” Miller said in a statement.

The FC Edmonton head coach will join the men’s national team at its pre-tournament training camp following the conclusion of Edmonton’s spring schedule.

Canada kicks off the Gold Cup on July 7 against Martinique in Pasadena, Calif., then travels to Seattle for a July 11 game against Mexico. The Canadians close out the group stage July 14 against Panama in Denver.

The top two teams from each group, plus the two highest-seeded third-place finishers, will advance to the knock-out stages.

Canada will announce its final 23-player roster before camp opens in Oxnard, Calif., on 26 June.

Canada won the Gold Cup in 2000 and has since made the semi-finals in 2002 and 2007. The Canadians made the quarter-finals in 2009.

Canada has been without a head coach Stephen Hart resigned last October following an 8-1 World Cup qualifying defeat in Honduras.
