Canada & Soccer: The FIFA World Cup is coming – BeSoccer EN

Before the event in 2026, Canada is set to appear at their first World Cup finals in 36 years when they compete at the 2022 event in Qatar. They have only once in their history made it through to the group stages of the tournament and that was during the 1986 competition in Mexico.
Highlights in the history of the Canadian national team include success in the 1985 and 2002 CONCACAF Championship/Gold Cup. The country also won the gold medal in the sport at the Summer Olympics in 1904.
Canada finished top of the final round of the CONCACAF qualifying group for the 2022 World Cup. They won eight of their 14 matches, drew four and lost just twice. Perhaps most surprisingly, they finished ahead of Mexico and the United States, who will both join them in Qatar.
Coached by John Herdman, Les Rouges are presently priced at odds of 250/1 in the outright betting markets with the best sports betting sites in Canada. Betway, who offers a legal sportsbook in Canada, for example, currently has five-time winners Brazil as their 5/1 favourite for the trophy. As it stands, Herdman’s side has been drawn in the same group as Belgium, Croatia and Morocco. They will face former world number one-ranked side Belgium in their opening game on November 27th. Canada is staked at 14/1 to win the group and progress into the knockout stages of the tournament for the first time.
If Canada is to have success at the World Cup, they will need striker Cyle Larin to continue his excellent record. The Club Brugge forward is his country’s all-time leading goalscorer. In addition, Stephen Eustaquio is another player Herman will be hoping can shine in Qatar. The midfielder plays his club football for Porto in Europe. He helped his side win the league title in Portugal last season. The Canadian will feature in the UEFA Champions League in the 2022/23 campaign.
Whatever happens at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the future is very bright for Canada. They have a number of players who will gain some valuable experience in playing a major tournament, which will help in four years’ time when they are one of the co-hosts.
More Canadian players are now moving across to Europe to play in some of the best leagues in the world. It means they are coming up against top-class opposition every week, which will help them improve as players.
Canada is now ranked 43rd in the FIFA World rankings. Their next aim will be to break into the top 20, joining USA and Mexico. If they continue to pick up positive results, as they have over the last 12 months, it won’t be long before they get there.
Les Rouges are next in action when they take on Qatar in a friendly on September 23. They are then set to take on Uruguay four days later in their final preparation for the World Cup in November.
