Canada qualify for World Cup after 36 years

Update : 28 Mar 2022, 11:35

For the first time in 36 years, the Canadian men’s national team qualified for the FIFA World Cup on Sunday, defeating Jamaica 4-0 in Toronto to officially punch their ticket to Qatar 2022.

With qualification to Qatar sealed, Les Rouges are set play at consecutive World Cups for the first time ever, as Canada will co-host the 2026 FIFA World Cup alongside the USA and Mexico.

John Herdman has led Canada to their first FIFA World Cup. Cyle Larin scored after just 13 minutes. Tajon Buchanan then doubled the hosts’ advantage on the brink of half-time, before Junior Hoilett’s late strike and Adrian Mariappa’s own goal confirmed Canada’s qualification for Qatar. 21-year-old, Davies was investing his full attention into his teammates’ quest to reach Qatar.

They have one more game against Panama in Panama this Wednesday, March 30.
