Swansea ace De Guzman explains Canada rejection

Swansea City midfielder Jonathan de Guzman has explained his continued snub of Canada.

De Guzman qualifies for Canada and Holland.

"Canada's not a soccer country," De Guzman told the Telegraph. "I'm not saying they don't produce good players, but for us to produce good players, they have to go overseas. Of course you'll get criticism, because players like Owen Hargreaves and me, we could have started making a pathway for other players.

"And they're still putting pressure on me to make that decision, because I haven't been capped yet as a Dutch player. I'm still hoping for that call-up."
