Ahead of the FIFA World Cup Qatar™, which kicks off on November 20, we present to you the participating teams. Next is Canada.


In its history, Canada will be in the World Cup finals only for the second time, and also after a big break, as the last time the Maple Leaf team participated in the World Cup was in 1986. And it would not be difficult to surpass the performance at that time, where they finished 24th out of 24 teams. Canada could be a real dark horse in the field, as not much is known about most players in the MLS, but bypassing Belgium and Croatia would be a real feat.

The biggest stars of the Canadian national team: Alphonso Davies

Alphonso Davies, at just 21 years old, is the team’s biggest star. The Bayern Munich left-back has already won four league titles with the Germans, as well as the Champions League and the Club World Cup. The recently injured player is of course a key player for the national team, and has already scored 12 goals in 32 matches with the crowned jersey.
