The nation have been drawn to a difficult Group F
This will be Canada‘s second World Cup appearance, the first being in 1986 when they went winless in group games and failed to score a goal. This time, Canada made reparations by finishing first in CONCACAF, ahead of two best countries, Mexico and the United States.
This underlines how far they have progressed since their initial World Cup appearances, as they had to wait 36 years for their second appearance in the showpiece.
Firstly, Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich played an important part in Canada’s qualification by scoring many significant goals. Secondly, he will be inspired to create a major surprise against other favourites.
Finally, in this tournament, John Herdman’s team will be committed to making history and defining the odds.
They will aim to punch above their weight this time, but only time will prove how far they have developed when they face a strong nation Belgium on November 24.
