CANADA SOCCER’S MEN’S NATIONAL TEAM PROGRAM Canada has built plenty of momentum in a landmark year for the Men’s National Team Program that will feature a record 19 international matches including FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and the Concacaf Gold Cup. Through 13 October, Canada have played 17 of those matches with a 11-4-2 record, eight clean sheets and a record 52 goals scored. Canada also set a record with eight consecutive wins and reached the Concacaf Gold Cup Semifinals for the first time since 2007. Canada will play eight of their 14 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in the Concacaf Final Round from September through November 2021: three matches in September, three matches in October, and two matches in November. In 2022, Canada will play three more matches in January/February and three more matches in March. Along with Honduras, USA and El Salvador, Canada’s other opponents in the Concacaf Final Round are Costa Rica, Jamaica, Mexico, and Panama. To reach the Concacaf Final Round, Canada won their First Round group against Aruba, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and Suriname, then eliminated Haiti in a head-to-head Second Round series. This marks the first time since 1997 that Canada have reached the Concacaf Final Round of FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. From the Concacaf Final Round of eight nations, the top-three nations automatically qualify for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and the fourth-best nation advance to an inter-continental playoff for additional FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Qualifiers. Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team are two-time Concacaf champions, previously winning the 1985 Concacaf Championship and 2000 Concacaf Gold Cup. This year marked Canada’s 15th participation at the Concacaf Gold Cup since 1991. Along with their first-place finish in 2000, Canada reached the Semifinals in 2002, 2007, and 2021. Across the past five years from 2017 to 2021, Canada are one of only four nations that finished top-six across all four Concacaf major tournaments: fifth place in Concacaf Nations League A, sixth place at both the 2017 and 2019 Concacaf Gold Cups, and a semi-final finish at the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup.
  2. Honestly, we just need to win. If Costa Rica wins today we have an opportunity to beat them in Edmonton.
  3. In the 1998 cycle our hex record was 1-3-6 for 6 points. We’ve already surpassed that.
  4. Side note- and we all hate to see it but Honduras has been shut out twice, has 3 points and their next game is in Mexico who will be very motivated to have a good game.
  5. Now I’m genuinely worried you are going to nod off at half time tonight!
  6. You ok man? You’ve been up all night liking David posts from February 2020. I had 19 notifications.
  7. After looking at Jamaica’s revised roster I am expecting three points from them.
  8. Looks like Jamio Topey has come in as a replacement for Jamaica. Where does he play you ask? He plays for Philadelphia Union…. 2.
  9. There was info posted that fully vaccinated players don’t need to quarantine upon return from red list countries. Reading further, it might only be that premier league players are exempt? So Jimenez is fine as long as he’s vaccinated. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/theathletic.com/news/fifa-welcomes-uks-decision-to-relax-quarantine-laws-for-international-players/8TypzngAS9zE%3famp=1
  10. Would Hoilett have been able to play in Toronto last month if he wasn’t vaxed?
  11. Another angle regarding our best 11 vs Mexico….. all the racist abuse Buchanan received after the gold cup from Mexican fans would tell me he would be even more motivated to kick them in the teeth at Azteca. Other players will feed off this too.
  12. Going into the oct many people had Panama as last place. Looking at the rosters and the first three games I’d say Panama are better than El Salvador. Then again how good are the Venezuelan, Bolivian, Peruvian and Panamanian leagues where much of Panama’s roster is from?
  13. I really hope he does it and adds even more. It just gives Canada more legitimacy worldwide.
