Canada men’s football team qualified for the FIFA World Cup finals for only the second time ever with a 4-0 rout of Jamaica. The nation’s only previous appearance in the tournament was 1986 in Mexico.
Entering the match on Sunday night, John Herdman’s squad needed only a draw against Jamaica to capture one of the three spots from the CONCACAF (North, Central American and Caribbean) region for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in November.
Canada becomes the 20th team to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will feature 32 nations vying for the ultimate prize in Qatar from November 21 to December 18.
The remaining 12 teams will be decided in the coming days before the draw on April 1 to determine the eight groups.
