Canada’s head coach Even Pellerud explains that Trinidad & Tobago is “a very skillful team and a very fast team. We will trust our own strengths, though, moreso than matching up with our opposition.”



Canada’s senior team has faced Trinidad & Tobago four times, but not 19 August 1994 in Montréal. Canada won all four of its games against Trinidad & Tobago between 1991 and 1994. The Canadian match will be followed by México – Jamaica at 19.30.



“We are expecting a big crowd, yet a hostile crowd,” says coach Pellerud.



Canada’s senior team, whose title sponsor is Winners, is looking to qualify for this summer’s Olympics. The team needs to finish amongst the top two teams in the six-team tournament to advance. That means winning the semi-final match against a team from the opposite group (México, Jamaica or the United States) on 9 April. Before the semi-final, Canada faces Trinidad & Tobago on 2 April and Costa Rica on 6 April.
