Canada Returns to Toronto in Late March for Key FIFA World Cup Qualifiers - partycasino

The CONCACAF FIFA World Cup Qualifiers are nearing their end, with only three rounds to go before we know the WC passengers. Team Canada is firmly in the driving seat with 7 wins, 4 draws, and no defeats so far. With 25 points from 11 matches so far and 6 wins in a row, Canada is 4 points ahead of both the USA and Mexico.

The Canadian soccer team returns to the BMO Field in Ontario on March 27, 2022, for a match against Jamaica. It'll kick-off at 16:00 local time and comes after a match away against Costa Rica on March 24 and before the final game away at Panama on March 30. Ticket details are yet to be revealed, but we're expecting more info soon.

Undefeated at BMO for Over a Decade

Canada is undefeated at the BMO Field since June 1, 2011. It's been somewhat of a talisman for the men's national soccer team. The team is always supported by thousands of fans who will be looking to show up in the arena or enjoy the match across all broadcasting platforms. During this qualifying window, all of Canada's matches will be broadcasted online at Onesoccer, RDS, and Sportsnet. Extended coverage is expected on Canada's Soccer social media channels such as Twitter, where you can track the games via the hashtag #CANMNT.

Team Canada has undoubtedly turned things around in the past few years. They are undefeated in 11 matches since the start of the CONCACAF final round in September 2021. In the past couple of years, Canada has 16 wins, 4 draws, and only 2 losses in international matches, which is truly impressive.

This year is the first time Canada has reached the CONCACAF Final Round of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers since 1997. Fans have been waiting for nearly two decades for this to happen. The top three nations will automatically qualify for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022, while the fourth-best team advances to an inter-continental playoff round.

It looks like team Canada has got it all settled, with the three remaining matches a mere formality. Still, it needs to be very careful as Mexico, and the USA are quality teams that can easily top the group charts if Canada isn't careful.

Emerging Young Stars

Canada’s recent success is fuelled by the emergence of budding stars in Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David. Paired with the experience of captain Atiba Hutchinson, the team has matured and is making waves in international soccer. World Cup qualification is all but guaranteed, but expect team Canada to go a step further.

David has been quite impressive so far, bagging 20 goals in just 27 caps. He's only 22 and is expecting a big money move this offseason moving away from French side Lille. His partnership with Cyle Larin upfront is crucial for Canada's chances as the team looks to progress to the World Cup and make waves in Qatar as well.
