- Larin, Adekugbe both score as the squad drives nearer to the 1st World Cup berth since 1986.
- Brampton, Ont’s Cyle Larin celebrates after scoring a goal during the first half of Canada’s 2-0 victory over the United States in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying tournament at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, Ont., on Sunday.
Canada’s unbeaten streak stays as they defeat the US:
Canada persisted its run to the World Cup in Qatar on Sunday, bundling the 11th-ranked United States out of its path in a 2-0 win.
With four matches remaining in the last round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, the 40th-ranked Canadian men turn heads while riding aside all comers in the province. Undefeated Canada is on the cusp of booking its ticket to football’s world showcase for the foremost time since 1986 — and just the second time ever.
But with a match in El Salvador threatening on Wednesday, manager John Herdman is not looking too far forward — yet.
“We’ve got a long path to go. We’re not qualified yet,” he stated. “The first thing we stated when we got the boys together at the end of the match is, ‘It’s not done. It begins again — tomorrow. We’ve got El Salvador. Source – cbc.ca
“We’re not there yet. We require some more points. I won’t let these boys off the theme. They’ll get a little bit of time to appreciate the moment, and then we’re back at it. And we’ve got to support staying humble. Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.” Source – cbc.ca
El Salvador can’t be peeking on to the Canadian men’s visit. Canada (6-0-4, 22 points) has beaten five consecutive, crowns the eight-team places, and boasts a 12-0-4 record in three qualifying rounds.
