Signed, sealed, delivered: Canada is heading to the men’s FIFA world cup after 36 years

Canada has officially sealed their spot in the men’s FIFA World Cup after the team scored a tremendous victory in its qualifying match.

The team faced Jamaica at a highly anticipated match in Toronto, flexing their muscle with a 4-0 win. The men played a stunning game of football, with the match’s outcome clear from halftime.

Canada’s recent victory didn’t disappoint, with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau taking to social media to show his support and approval.

The team has been moved from success to success under the guidance of coach John Herdman, with Canada sitting at its highest ever world ranking.

“I think this country, they never believed in us. Because we’ve given them nothing to believe in,”

“They believe now.

“And I think if we all get behind each other — this is the time for everyone to get behind football and unite. Because we can be a powerhouse. And it’s time.”

After a long hiatus, Canadians are leaping with joy as they officially deem themselves a true football country. Canada last qualified for the men’s World Cup was in 1986 in Mexico, where they suffered an embarrassing string of losses.

Qatar World Cup

The team will now compete at the World Cup in Qatar later this year alongside big opponents like Spain, England, Belgium, and Japan.

This will be the first World Cup tournament hosted in the Middle East and will kick off on November 21.
