The governing body also said an offer had been made the same day to the women’s team, saying “both parties are working together to reach an agreement”.

Canada Soccer said it was seeking “to equalize issues related to player pool compensation, travel policy and the configuration of high performance environments” between the two teams.

The players have said they want a bigger share of the World Cup prize money and a “full package for friends and family” for the tournament which kicks off in November in Qatar.
