Canada will open the next round of World Cup qualifying in Cuba next June. There are 12 teams remaining in the CONCACAF region, which covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.

The countries have been divided into three pools, with Canada drawn in Group C along with Cuba, Honduras and Panama. The top two in each pool advance to the final round in the region.

Canada will play at Cuba on June 8 before hosting Honduras on June 12.

The Canadians will meet Panama home and away on Sept. 7 and 11. They wrap up the round Oct. 12 at home to Cuba and Oct. 16 in Honduras.

The Canadian men finished off the second round with a 4-0 win over St. Kitts and Nevis on Tuesday.

Three teams from CONCACAF are guaranteed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, with the fourth-placed team meeting the Oceania winner in a playoff.
