As for the Canadian team, this match represents the next stage on the Road to Russia 2018. Canada passed through two earlier stages, eliminating both Dominica and Belize. In this round, Canada will face Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico in a six-match series over an 11-month period; the top-two teams in the group will advance to CONCACAF’s hexagonal final round, otherwise known at ‘The Hex’.
The Canadian team continues to improve throughout the course of the calendar year, with a positive record of five wins, five draws and two losses in 12 international matches. Defensively, the team has been sound, even setting a national record by posting 564 consecutive shutout minutes earlier this year.
“The team is playing better and better football every time we get together,” said Atiba Hutchinson. “At this stage, taking that good momentum into our home match is important.”
For Canadian fans, Friday will be their chance to help support that momentum on the Road to Russia.
