Canada coach John Herdman has revealed his 26-man squad for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.
In an announcement devoid of any major surprises, Alphonso Davies – the team’s undisputed star – was selected despite currently being sidelined with a hamstring issue. Doneil Henry, Scott Kennedy and Maxime Crepeau miss out with injuries of their own, however.
Canada are hoping to fare better at Qatar 2022 than they did at their only previous appearance at a FIFA World Cup, when they failed to score a goal at Mexico 1986. Having topped their qualification group above Mexico and USA and with a crop of talented young players, Les Rouges will be out to make history.
Canada face Belgium in their first game of the tournament on 23 November before taking on Croatia and Morocco.
