Canada defeated Bermuda 5-1 and Cayman Islands 11-0 in the first two matches in Concacaf Group B in the month of March.
John Herdman, Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team Head Coach said “It’s great to be back together and continue to build on our momentum as every match counts on the road to Qatar 2022.”
“We have an opportunity to build on our solid start, after we put ourselves in a good position with goals difference in the first two matches so that we can control our destiny in the matches to come,” Herdman added.
Only the group winner will advance beyond the First Round of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Qualifiers, with the Group B winner to face the Group E winner in a Second Round, a head-to-head series on 12 and 15 June that will start in either Belize, Haiti or Nicaragua, according to a statement by Canada Soccer said.
The statement further added that the winner from that Second Round then advances to the Concacaf Final Round of eight nations scheduled to begin in the Fall of 2021.
