  1. Doubt it. At least not now. His sister Silvana also used to play for Arsenal but recently moved to Chelsea. She went to Canadian U15/U17 camps but has decided to play for Mexico too https://www.canadasoccer.com/profile/?id=7977 The whole family seems to be committed to Mexico.
  2. Of note: Born March 25th 2000, so too old to be U-20 eligible anymore. He is still eligible for the England U21 (u23) squad. They don't seem to have a young keeper who is really excelling; he may fancy his chances of breaking into that squad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4kzw_sNkMo He has played competitive games for England at the U17 level: October 2016 vs Azerbaijan and Romania: https://www.uefa.com/under17/match/2019029--england-vs-azerbaijan/lineups/?iv=true https://www.uefa.com/under17/match/2019055--england-vs-romania/lineups/?iv=true March 2017 vs the Czech Republic: https://www.uefa.com/under17/match/2021259--england-vs-czech-republic/lineups/?iv=true So he would need to file his one-time switch to play for us.
  3. That's why I like this thread. It seems appropriate for the moment. The day before we actually play a WCQ game (in March perhaps) I'll ask @jordan or another mod to lock it. Let the nonsense and chaos reign for now Robert ( @_Roberto_), since this thread is about everything besides actual matches played, I'll tell you about a dream I had: We were finally playing WCQs. It was our first match against Bermuda. We were winning 3-1 but in the 77th minute Herdman subbed on Cavallini! It had been so many months that Herdman and all those around him had forgotten that Cavallini was suspended due to yellow card accumulation (see: https://www.canadiansoccernews.com/forums/topic/72834-lucas-cavallini/page/82/ ) so we had to forfeit the match 0-3. Bermuda drew Suriname 1-1 and advanced. The country was in disbelief. Cavallini went into self-exile in Uruguay and you wrote a long ranting post in the forum in all-caps. Also, Octavio Zambrano tweeted about how much smarter he was than Herdman. What do you think?
  4. It seems like he was only on a 6 month contract or something (understandable, given his history of serious injury). Belenenses seemed interested in re-signing him, but Ferreira went on vacation to the Maldives and went incommunicado (never replied to the interest): https://www.record.pt/futebol/futebol-nacional/liga-nos/belenenses-sad/detalhe/expectativa-no-belenenses-sad-por-ricardo-ferreira As of a couple days ago, it seems like he has officially left Belenenses: https://www.abola.pt/nnh/2020-09-07/belenenses-defesa-central-esta-por-horas/859809 Not sure if he is injured once more or simply with Unattached FC.
  5. @El Hombre is talking about the format that was announced after this thread was created; go back and check page 4 of this thread, starting with post from @xabuep2.
  6. Yes they will. Now CONCACAF have announced it too: https://www.concacaf.com/en/world-cup-qualifying-men/article/update-on-the-concacaf-qualifiers-for-the-fifa-world-cup-qatar-2022
  7. No, but FIFA just did! https://www.fifa.com/worldcup/news/update-on-the-concacaf-qualifiers-for-the-fifa-world-cup-qatar-2022tm No games 'til March! Because they were waiting for FIFA to do it first!
  8. Bump. This was 5 years ago! https://canadasoccer.com/national-teams/matches/national-team-match-past/?matchId=1268 YO GAT DAT RIGHT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jos9KaX6Tjo
  9. Looks like they aren't sure if they have the budget for him: https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/18684971.accrington-boss-relieved-positive-transfer-window/ This may be a legit concern of theirs or they may be saying that as a negotiation tactic to get him to sign for less.
  10. TV hosts in El Salvador are speaking of bubbles as early as November: https://www.elgrafico.com/futbol/CONCACAF-pretende-hacer-una-burbuja-para-sacar-adelante-las-eliminatorias-20200901-0017.html
  11. There is the flexibility of separate groups that will not play each other. 6 groups; so you pick 6 of the following: Florida: -Bradenton (IMG Academy) -Orlando -Greater Miami Texas: -Frisco(Dallas) -Houston -Austin (Bold Stadium) -San Antonio -Edinburg California: -Los Angeles (LAFC) -Los Angeles (Galaxy) -Orange County SC (where we played in January 2020) -San Diego (San Diego Loyal SC) -San Jose (Earthquakes) -Sacramento Canada: -BC Place (our group, if we can play at home)
  12. The rumour is CONCACAF will host a press conference tomorrow to announce that WCQ has been postponed until 2021. https://twitter.com/delvalle_ESPN/status/1300529229461946368 The other rumour is that they will look at the bubble option in the USA for Jan/Feb. Any old school V's remember late 1997/1998/1999 where, if Wikipedia is correct, the team didn't play for 6 months, then played Macedonia, then didn't play 11½ months? Anybody go through withdrawal symptoms? https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_men's_national_soccer_team_results
  13. CONCACAF are having a ZOOM meeting tomorrow (Tuesday), they will decide what is to be done and if WCQ get postponed: https://www.elsalvador.com/deportes/futbol/hugo-carrillo-fesfut-aprendizaje-covid/747626/2020/
  14. It looks like he will play for Jamaica: http://jamaica-gleaner.com/article/sports/20200831/morrison-ready-boyz-debut ------------ Meanwhile plenty of things are going on behind the scenes. CONCACAF is working hard they say and WCQs are likely to be postponed: https://antiguaobserver.com/final-decision-to-be-made-on-concacaf-qualifiers/ AFC have already postponed their WCQs.
  15. ...and just like Liam Millar he's now a dad! Congrats to Samuel and Chloé on the birth of their child!
