Team Canada notch World Cup bid: End 36 year drought

In 1986, Canada’s underdog team went out in the World Cup in unceremonious fashion, losing to Hungary and the Soviet Union without a goal to speak of in the tourney. That would be the last time team Canada would be represented in the World Cup.

Until this year.

After 36 years, Canada has clinched a spot in the Men’s World Cup. The team achieved the feat following a 4-0 rout over Jamaica. Led by Coach John Herdman, Les Rouges secured a top-3 slot in the final stage of Concacaf qualifying for Qatar 2022.

Herdman, who joined the organization in 2018, emotionally recalled his proclamation of this day, insisting on the country’s doubts of them breaking the 4-decade long drought.

“I think this country never believed in us because we’ve given them nothing to believe in. They believe now.”

Canada is currently ahead in both Group A and on the North/Central America Table. With a sizable gap in Group A, they currently stand ahead of USA and Mexico by 3 points apiece.
