The Canadian National Team looks forward to their next match against Mexico with the octagonal on the horizon
The fight to reach the next World Cup in Qatar is also played out in Concacaf, with the United States, Mexico and Canada fighting for the leadership of the octagonal. With the American victory against the Aztecs, and the Canadian victory against Costa Rica, they have increased the importance of the next day.
Canada is especially preparing to host Mexico in a match that could give them first place on the octagonal if the United States fails to win on their visit to Jamaica. For the Canadian coach, Tata Martino’s team could blame the new defeat suffered against the USA.
“We have a great opportunity on Tuesday night. I think Mexico is hurt by that result so they will come out with their weapons I’m sure,” said John Herdman after his victory against the Tico team on Friday night.
However, Herdman does not allow overconfidence to face the ‘Tri’: “They are Concacaf champions who are now in our territory. We have to keep our feet on the ground, it is our reality, the players cannot get carried away.”
