Canada National Men’s Soccer Team climbed to the top of the The North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) World Cup Qualifying table after winning against Mexico 2-1 to earn them the 3 points they needed.
National teams from CONCACAF plays in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will be held in Qatar.
Canada is on an unbelievable form as they are currently unbeaten in a total of eight games by picking up four wins and four draws with a total of 16 points which puts them at the top ahead of the United States of America (USA) by one point and two points ahead of Mexico and Panama.
Canada has not qualified for the World Cup since 1986 and by the looks of it they will end that streak at the FIFA World Cup 2022 if they can maintain their form with only six games left on their calendar.
Cyle Larin who is the striker for Canada managed to score two goals against Mexico putting Canada in a good spot up to 90th minute when Mexico’s midfielder Hector Herrera managed to score a goal for his side. However, Canada defended well to maintain their lead and eventually won the match on Tuesday night.
It was also a historic night for Larin as his two-goal performance increased his tally to a total of 22 goals for the national side, currently tying the record with Dwayne De Rosario as the top Canadian men’s goal-scorer in history.
The fight for the top will be an entertaining one to see because only the top three teams after 14 games will advance to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
