Only because Westhead has tweeted "neutrally" about Copa America and the Netherlands friendly, I am assuming TSN will have both the Copa and the friendlies. 

Netherlands friendly is confirmed on OneSoccer.

I think we can draw France and win vs Chile and Peru. I don’t imagine France caring too much before the Euro ie a diplomatic draw.

I'm wondering how many ranking points we would get per team with a win, draw or lose? Anybody have an idea?

If I've done my math right (and I'd certainly be up for someone verifying things but I think I followed FIFA's algorithm correctly):

Against France, 8.1 for a win, 3.1 for a draw, and -1.9 for a loss.

Against the Netherlands, 7.5 for a win, 2.5 for a draw, and -2.5 for a loss.

My 5 game losing streak post came out of me not knowing how to convey that I am excited for the games, but there is also a fear that if we lose against the 3 top 10 teams, despite them all being very much expected results, it could potentially have my mindset low going into the still very difficult, but perhaps winnable last 2 group stage matches.

So I ended up with an "I don't know if I should laugh or cry" type of joke.

Thing is, if we lose to Netherlands, France and Argentina, then get out of our Copa group, the prep and demanding opponents will have served us properly. I don't care for getting ties with Netherlands and France--however fun-- and then losing three straight in Copa.

Your Netherlands numbers matches this site, so I'm willing to trust your other numbers as well.

It doesn't have the France match available yet.

He just posted the exact same message on the Facebook group. I've seen him do these repeat postings on big soccer, here, and FB before as well. I have no idea why. His writing style is so unique it's impossible to miss. 

Dead internet theory?

So many good players left had to be left off.

A complete second squad would be a challenge to face.

I'm surprised with some of the inclusions: Dayot has had a terrible season for Bayern, same for Muani at PSG, Kante in the Saudi league? and I thought Coman is injured?

We're sooo gonna kick their asses.  Where's Herdman with the bulletin board material?  The French will need it to motivate themselves.

With Canada taking on such a big opponent like the French, not only will this game most likely be on OneSoccer but I wonder if other big networks showcase this game like TSN? Sportsnet? I mean Canada 🇨🇦 is pretty much getting huge exposure by facing France because of the caliber of opponent but also the caliber of players the French have. I mean how can we not?
