Milan Borjan and Cloé Lacasse honoured as Canada Soccer Players of the Month
Goalkeeper Milan Borjan and forward Cloé Lacasse have been named Canada Soccer’s Players of the Month for April.
Borjan won his sixth Serbian League title with Red Star Belgrade while Lacasse hoisted her third Taça da Liga Feminina (League) cup with Portugal's Benfica via a 3-1 win over Braga.
The 35-year-old Borjan, who grew up in Hamilton, also helped Red Star qualify for a group stage berth in the 2023-24 Champions League. In three matches in April, Borjan played 270 minutes and recorded two shutouts as Red Star extended its win streak to four.
Lacasse scored four goals and added four assists, reaching 100 goals for her club in just her fourth season with Benfica, which currently tops Portugal’s Campeonato Nacional Feminino league standings.
Borjan has won 73 caps for Canada while Lacasse has 19 caps.
