The Canadian team was on the verge of securing qualification for the Qatar World Cup in Qatar before appearing against Jamaica, on the thirteenth day of the eighth final of the CONCACAF qualifiers. Already with Kyle Larren’s goal, which put the opponent 1-0, the dream did not come true.
Barely in the 13th minute of the first half, the striker, who plays for Besiktas in Turkey, received a pass from his teammate, helped by a slight deflection by one of the opponents, and was not forgiven in the area. With a forehand shot, Laren overcame the resistance of goalkeeper Andre Blake and caused thousands of fans to cheer at BMO Field.
With this result, Kyle Larren reached thirteen goals in the CONCACAF qualifiers. If victory is achieved, the Canadian national team will enter the World Cup after 36 years. Let’s remember that the last time North Americans participated in an event of this scale was in Mexico 1986.
Canada goes to pass the World Cup
After 36 years of waiting, Canada has a chance to celebrate its return to the World Cup finals on Sunday if it manages to at least get a draw against eliminated Jamaica in Toronto.
The North American team was already able to achieve early qualification for Qatar 2022 last Thursday, but faltered in Costa Rica with a 1-0 loss, the first time they conceded a goal in a CONCACAF qualifier.
Canada’s goal is to secure a place on Sunday in front of their home fans at BMO Field and not have to wait for the final day of qualifying on Wednesday in Panama.
Canada, the biggest surprise in the Concacaf World Cup, leads the group with 25 points, followed by the United States and Mexico with 22 points.
