Canada, underdogs as early as the group stage

Canada is about to face a very stressful group stage as they are about to meet three of the best squads in the tournament. Along with them in the group stage are Belgium, Croatia, and Morocco. FIFA currently ranked Belgium as the world’s number two. Moreover, Croatia is the runners-up last World Cup while Morocco is unbeaten in the African qualifying. It is very clear that the Canadians are the underdogs in this group. It is indeed scary to meet these teams as early as the group stage. However, the Canadians will just continue to play their game and try to win every games. Despite being underdogs, the Canadians are confident they can pull of a surprise in the group stage.

Since this squad is about to face tougher teams, many are doubting their capabilities of advancing in the Round of 16. Their journey this World Cup will be very tough, but this squad is competing well recently. This is just the second time Canada qualified in the World Cup and their last was 36 years ago. They worked hard to qualify for the World Cup, so they must seize all the opportunities in front of them. Moreover, luckily for Canada, they have the stars that can make magic happen for their squad. Expect that Canada will not disappoint everyone behind them on their campaign.

Stephen Eustaquio, Tajon Buchanan, Jonathan David. These three players must be watched out by other teams as they will surely provide for Canada. Eustaquio is capable of controlling and passing the ball, and is able to dictate the game’s tempo. In fact, many regarded him as a “complete midfield general” because of his game style. Meanwhile, Buchanan developed a lot over the past years, both defensively and offensively. In fact, in 2021, the award of the Best Young Player at the Concacaf Gold Cup is given to him. He can beat you one-on-one because of how fast he is as a player. As for Jonathan David, his strength is his acceleration and speed. Aside from that, he is also a remarkable player, and will surely live a mark to their opponents.

Football is a team sport, but the Canadians are also capable of going on one-on-one. But with perseverance, the Canadians may shock everyone in the World Cup.
