  1. I live in Quebec City. As a youth participation sport, soccer is very popular here, but as a spectator sport it is not. I suspect that the situation is similar in most parts of the province. And in the province as a whole, interest in our national teams (men’s and women’s) is not as high as in the rest of Canada, because a majority of Quebecers think of themselves more as Quebecers than as Canadians.
  2. I think we can add Eustáquio to those 3 guys. None of our other defensive midfielders are at Eustáquio’s level.
  3. The Mexico match was also on RDS.
  4. Quite a few of Mexico’s best players play in Europe, so they will definitely have to adjust to the high elevation.
  5. We will need to do a fair bit of squad rotation, probably about as much as during the last window, but we won’t be conceding anything to anybody.
  6. Sure hope Cavallini will be good to go against Mexico. The Mexican players won’t like seeing him on the field.
  7. Might come down to either Millar or Pasher, with perhaps the edge to Millar because he can also play up front. I could be mistaken but I don’t think Pasher can play up front.
  8. Looks good. I would start Osorio instead of Atiba. After 60 minutes bring in Cavallini for David or Hoilett, and if Davies is good to go, sub him in for Buchanan or Laryea.
  9. I think we need to go to a 3-5-2, which we can do by subbing in Osorio for Adekugbe. I would also put David in for Larin.
  10. Sporting Kansas City started 7 homegrown players, six of them under the age of 22.
  11. My apologies if this has been discussed before, but I’m wondering how many of Mexico’s best players are missing from its Gold Cup squad? Have they brought what is essentially their A team, or not?
  12. Yes, I was including the US group phase game.
  13. As long as we advance from the Gold Cup group stage, we will most likely play 2, 3 or maybe even 4 games against our Octo opponents. This is excellent preparation for WCQ.
