TORONTO -- One of John Herdmans World Cup goals for 2015 is to field the most resilient and connected team. Vince Coleman Jersey . "This resilience training starts now," Canadas womens soccer coach said. The Canadians face South Korea at Edmontons Commonwealth Stadium on Oct. 30, a friendly that both gives the women a chance to get used to the stadium where theyll open up their World Cup campaign, and tests their resiliency. Average temperatures for Oct. 30 in the Alberta capital range from 0 to 6 C. "The players need to see that it is part of the test to keep themselves focused on the task at hand," Herdman said on a conference call Thursday to announce his preliminary roster. "Im hoping the warm reception of the crowd warms everything up for us; the more people we put in the stadium, the warmer it will be." The Canadian team that will face South Korea features 13 Olympic bronze medallists plus 16-year-old national team rookie Sura Yekka, as Herdman continues to evaluate young talent before the final push to the World Cup. Star striker Christine Sinclair is one of the 13 who captured bronze for Canada at the 2012 London Olympics, while Yekka, a defender from Mississauga, Ont., earned her first call-up to Canadas senior squad after an impressive showing for the national under-20 side. "As a 16-year-old Sura fits the profile of that modern fullback, she ticks a lot of the boxes that were looking for, and I think thats whats exciting," Herdman said. "As I said to the young players when they came into that camp, if youre good enough youre old enough. And this player is someone that looks really exciting and could have a promising future." Canada, which has three wins and a loss all-time against South Korea, was beaten 3-1 by the Koreans the last time the two teams met, at the Yongchuan Cup tournament in January. Twelve of the 18 players on the current roster played the last time the two countries faced off. Yekka is one of 32 new faces Herdman has had into camp in his quest to field a younger team when Canada hosts the World Cup. He warned there would be growing pains in the early going of what he called a "two-steps-back three-steps-forward" approach. "When you immerse 30-odd new players into a program, no other national teams do that straight after a World Cup, you wont see that happen very often," Herdman said. The game marks the first for the Canadian women at Commonwealth Stadium since a friendly against Germany in 2005. There will be more to come in Edmonton, as Canada will play its opening game of the 2015 FIFA Womens World Cup at Commonwealth. Cold weather or not, the choice of stadium was part of Herdmans World Cup preparation plans, "to get the experience of playing in that opening stadium," he said. Hes hoping Edmontonians will "give us the best chance to experience what its going to be like at the Womens World Cup because bringing the team here, its important that we get a sense of how its going to roll out, hows its going to feel, what all the processes and systems are that weve got to get used to to perform on the big day." Herdman believes South Korea will qualify for the World Cup, and could even be in Canadas group when they play the preliminary round in Edmonton. Jhonny Peralta Jersey . -- Houstons All-Star tandem of James Harden and Dwight Howard refused to let the Rockets give in to fatigue. Michael Wacha Jersey .

Yadier Molina Jersey. New Zealands Ko shot her second-straight 69 and was within a stroke of the lead before finishing with a bogey on the 18th. Beth Allen of the United States was tied for third place at 5-under with South Koreas Kyu-jung Baek and Seon-woo Bae.
