Boston signs Latham

Canadian striker Christine Latham has signed with Boston of the new Women's Professional Soccer league, becoming the Breakers' first international player.
Latham has 49 caps for Canada and started all six matches at the 2003 FIFA women's World Cup, scoring a team-high three goals in the tournament.
The 27-year-old hasn't played for Canada since 2007 when she was suspended along with veteran Charmaine Hooper and Sharolta Nonen. The trio was cut after they failed to attend a training camp in Newfoundland and play in an exhibition series in China.
Latham has played in the W-League since WUSA's demise. She spent the 2005 season with the New Jersey Wildcats and captained the Atlanta Silverbacks from 2006 to '08. She was the Silverbacks' leading scorer in 2007 with 10 goals and two assists, and was third in the league with 15 goals this past season.
