    Canadian soccer fans will always be able to prove Henry is not dependable by waiting for one mistake and ignoring the rest of the man's play.

    I’m hoping he abandons his job like he did to the women’s program because he found a better job. Oh wait no other nation wants his dumb ted talk, car salesman, hobbit ass.

    While all the players tribune articles are ghost written, I do find it particularly annoying how this writer clearly edits out all of the pesky stuff about playing for Canada that might annoy American readers and inserts a transparently bogus line about "North America" being his home  followed by an Audi plug.

    Wow, some of the reactions. Because the graphic design standard in Canada is a really high level, come on. 
    People put up with pathetic design day in day out, wear cookie cutter clothes from the racks at big box stores, then they do a shirt for a 10 game tournament that is radically different than anything ever seen, at an unnecessary development cost, ensuring it'll be an amazingly specific commemoration shirt for a very unusual season, and people are raging, it's all fire and brimstone.
    You are not even going to get to wear one of these to a game, you dopes.

    Only things Concacaf TSN had left pre-covid is Champions League and Gold Cup. TSN holds rights to the actual World Cup.
    OneSoccer has all ages men/women for Concacaf qualifying & Nations League matches outside of Canada. And previous to that, they got the rights to broadcast Canada home matches.

    There aren't a ton, but a few have had a decent go at it.   
    - Mozzi Gyori played with a few clubs in NA and Europe.  I used to play with him when he was 12 and joined his dad (Cshaba, a former Yugoslov pro) in a local pick-up game.  Mozzi's older brother Shaul was killed in a car accident at the age of 17 and everyone expected him to turn pro as well.
    - Lewis Page played pro soccer domestically and briefly in England but has established himself as a great coach.  I worked in the office beside Lewis a few years ago.
    - Paul Craig played with FC Edmonton in NASL.  Don't know too much about him.
    - Ibrah Sanoh plays with the HFX Wanderers and before that tore up the Canadian Collegiate soccer scene with the Holland College Hurricanes.  I played indoor against Ibrah and his brother played on my team for a bunch of years (and coached one of my kids).   
    Can't think of a 5th, but watching the talent of kids now coming up through the system and their access to elite training streams, I am confident there will be more in the future

    Well I don't expect them to stop other teams from having fans, just because Canada wants to stick it's head in the sand. 
    You're right it would suck, but it is what it is.

    I know you're all moving on from this and I'm not sure where this all started and not really interested in going back through it all, but one thing you need to understand about this is the politicization of Covid "death rates".  Looking at the numbers directly attributed to Covid can be misleading due to where you are getting your numbers and what their message is.
    The solution is to look at "excess death" (or "excess mortality") rates which compare how many people die around this time of year to the same in past years, regardless of cause.  In a "normal" year, it follows the same pattern however this year is different.  It is clear that Covid is having a significantly high impact on this where some countries are (or were prior to quarantine measures being taken) experiencing 25% to 50% more deaths per week than you would normally see at the same time any other year.  This is the Covid affect.
    To compare it to the seasonal flu is inaccurate.  A particularly bad case of the seasonal flu doesn't account for a spike where twice as many people died in Ecuador in April than what is seen every other year.
    This information is widely available.  I urge you to seek it out.

    red card reacted to Zem in Yigal Bruk - Schalke   
    Oh please, you have to be taking the piss. He spent four years with the Whitecaps, and was not only scouted, but invited to an ID camp by the CSA. They didn't think he was good enough for the U17s and neither did Ukraine. Ukraine also didn't think he was good enough for the U19s last fall after he played in a couple of U18 friendlies in August. The CONCACAF U20 tournament was cancelled, so the CSA hasn't had the chance to call him up if they think he's good enough now regardless, so there's literally no reason to claim he's "sLiPpEd ThRoUgH tHe CrAcKs".
    And what has you so convinced that this player you know nothing about would be good enough anyway? Have you forgotten about Josh Doughty? Have you already forgotten about Jamie Dunning? Playing for the academy of a recognizeable European team doesn't automatically mean they're better than any kid playing over here.

    I've said this elsewhere, so I'll quickly repeat myself here. 
    I hate this campaign. It's entirely 100% focused on putting 1-3 Canadian teams in an American league and 0% focused on what is actually good for Canadian women's soccer. We need a Canadian league with teams in those big 3 markets, not another situation where we are forced to depend on the benevolence of Americans, begging at their table for scraps.

    red card reacted to Kent in Ayo Akinola   
    Nigeria has only missed one of the last 6 World Cups (in 2006). I doubt that fear of Nigeria missing the World Cup will be a factor.
    Also, there is no guarantee Canada will be in the 2026 World Cup, and there is certainly no guarantee that Akinola will be able to play in that World Cup with Canada if he commits to Canada. Injury, dip in form, other better players coming up, and I guess now I should also mention global pandemics as possible reasons he isn’t guaranteed to play.
    Other prospects in the past have come and gone with a whimper. We don’t know that Akinola won’t do the same.

    Agree to disagree I guess (and it appears you are disagreeing with lots of folks on here) because in my mind this is precisely what a player is doing if they choose to rep another country that they have pretty minimal ties to.  It is different if their country doesn’t want them - and we have both gained players and lost players in these circumstances (Arfield and Teffler are examples of both).  I view that situation very differently.   But if your country - the one you grew up in and the one you developed your soccer skills in - calls you to play for the national team, you absolutely are turning your back on them if you make a calculated decision to play for someone else. Call it ridiculous and judge me all you want, but I still believe in national pride and loyalty to one’s country. And yes, that is true even in something as mundane as kicking a little ball around a field.
