Make no mistake, Canadian soccer is on the rise.

Fresh off an Olympic gold medal in Tokyo this summer, the Canadian Women’s National Team finally enshrined themselves as proof that they are one of the top women’s national teams in the world. While the women have had success for decades, the Men’s side has struggled a lot more.

However with the emergence of youngsters Alphonso Davies, Jonathan David, Tajon Buchanan and others, things are looking up in a hurry for the MNT.

The Men rode a strong October of World Cup Qualifying to their highest World Ranking in over two decades. Starting the year off at #72 in the world, Canada has risen the ranks to #48 – the highest it’s been since 1997.



The team next gets together on November 12th for a date with Costa Rica in Edmonton before welcoming World Cup Qualifying leader Mexico on the 16th.

We’ll be watching!
