Club career

The son of Italian immigrants, Berdusco was the original Canadian Soccer League's 3rd all-time highest goal scorer with 54 from 1988 through 1992 as a member of North York Rockets. In 1988 he was the league's 5th leading scorer with 11 goals, in 1990 the 6th leading scorer with 9 goals, in 1991 the league's 2nd leading scorer with 14 goals, and in the league's final season, 1992, hed led everyone with 14. He then played for the APSL's Toronto Blizzard in 1993, in China in the Jia League with now defunct Foshan Fosidi (along with fellow Canadian international Ian Carter) in 1994, then again in the APSL in the summer of the '94 with the Toronto Rockets. He was with FC Wil in Switzerland, and had a short spell in Austria, playing three matches in November 1994 for VfB Mödling.[1] He returned to North America to play the summer of 1996 with the Montreal Impact, and finished the A-League sixth leading scorer with 19 points (on 8 goals and 3 assists).[2] He also played in the A-League with the Milwaukee Rampage for the 1997 season.

Berdusco ended his pro career in the semi-pro Canadian Professional Soccer League with the Toronto Olympians, where he played from 1998 to 2001, and then with the Toronto Supra.

International career

He made his debut for Canada in a June 1992 Columbus 500 Cup match against Hongkong in which he immediately scored his first international goal. He went on to earn a total of 18 caps, scoring 4 goals. He has represented Canada in only 2 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[3]. He also played at the inaugural 1989 FIFA Futsal World Championship.

Berdusco is famous in Canada for being the player who scored the equaliser against mighty Brazil to secure the Canadians a 1-1 draw in a 1994 World Cup tune-up match played at Commonwealth Stadium. A month later, Brazil became World Champions.

His final international was a November 1997 World Cup qualification match against Costa Rica, a game after which also Alex Bunbury, Frank Yallop, Paul Dolan, Geoff Aunger and Colin Miller all said farewell to the national team.
