The Canadian soccer team has called up striker Lucas Cavallini to replace the suspended Oliver Occean for Tuesday's key World Cup qualifier against Honduras.

Occean was red-carded in a goalmouth melee in Friday's 3-0 win over Cuba.

The Toronto-born Cavallini plays his club football in Uruguay.

Canada can advance to the final round of CONCCAF qualifying with a tie or win Tuesday.
