Canada to the World Cup
It’s an amazing story for Canada. They’ve probably got their best squad in history. Alphonso Davies is by far the big star of the team. The youngster who plays for Bayern Munich is currently out because of heart problems since a Covid-19 infection. His response to Canada qualifying for this tournament shows how much it means for him and his country.
Lille striker Jonathan David is another very talented young Canadese football player. They are surrounded by quality and experience. This team is capable of getting the first ever match victory for Canada in a World Cup tournament. They are the first team to qualify in a group with USA and Mexico. Both countries are in a good place to qualify as well, but they need to get a good result in their final match on Thursday. Especially the match between Costa Rica and USA is going to be an interesting one. There is only three points between both teams. A big victory by Costa Rica can force USA to play a play-off game.
