Adrian Cann (born September 19, 1980 in Thornhill, Ontario) is a Canadian national team soccer defender, who is not currently playing for a club.


Club career

College soccer

Cann had a college soccer career at the University of Louisville from 2000 to 2003. Cann immediately earned a place in the Cardinals' starting lineup as a freshman, starting 20 games for the team, and was named to first-team All-Conference USA. Cann would maintain this level of performance, being named first-team All-C USA as a sophomore, junior, and senior, and being named the conference's Co-Defensive Player of the Year as a junior and senior. In his final year he played 15 games for them.[1]

Montreal & Vancouver

Upon graduating, Cann was selected 16th overall in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by the Colorado Rapids. Cann played little for the team, however, and was released midseason because of roster restrictions limiting a team's international players. Cann then signed late in the season with the Montreal Impact, but saw little playing time for the team, playing only 256 minutes over 7 games. He stayed with the Impact for the 2005 season and made 15 more appearances for them.

In 2006, Cann signed with the Vancouver Whitecaps, helping the team win their first USL First Division Championship beating the Rochester Raging Rhinos 3-0 and was named the Whitecaps' Most Outstanding Defender in 2007.


On June 29, 2008 he signed a four year deal with Danish football side Esbjerg fB. He was released from his contract in early 2010.


Cann underwent a trial with League Two Burton Albion in England before agreeing to a trial with Toronto FC of Major League Soccer in March of 2010.

International career

He made his debut for Canada in a January 2008 friendly match against Martinique. By December 2009, he earned a total of 7 caps, scoring no goals. He has so far represented Canada in 2 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[2].
