The Canadian football team conceded, Thursday night in Toronto, the score of parity (1-1) against Honduras, in a match counting for the first day of the last round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup under the zone of CONCACAF.
The two goals of the meeting were scored on a penalty. Honduras opened the scoring with five minutes to go in the first half with Alexandre Lopez, who unleashed a powerful shot that went into the net.
After the lemon break, Canada set the record straight, in the 66th minute of play. The goal is the work of Cyle Larin, member of the Turkish club Besiktas, and author of his 19th achievement with his selection .
Canada, 59th in the FIFA rankings, had territorial domination without realizing the multiple opportunities that John Herdman’s colts had obtained.
On the second day of the last qualifying round of the World Cup, for the Concacaf Zone, Canada will cross swords, Sunday outside, with its southern neighbor, the United States of America, one of the main favorites with Mexico to secure their ticket to the Qatari World Cup, to be held during the winter of 2022.
Three days later, next Wednesday, Jonathan David’s teammates will be opposed to El Salvador, in Toronto, on behalf of the third day of the qualifying phase, long of 14 matches, and which will end in March 2022.
The first three at the end of this phase will advance directly to the World Cup while the selection, ranked fourth, will play a play-off with teams from other continents.
It should be remembered that Canada’s last – and only – participation in a World Cup dates back to 1986, a tournament held in Mexico.
