Canada 4-0 Jamaica: Canadians qualify for first World Cup since 1986




Basic BasicTajon Buchanan celebrates after scoring Canada’s second goal

Canada beat Jamaica 4-0 to reach their first men’s World Cup in 36 years.

Their last World Cup turn up came at Mexico 1986, where they finished bottom of their group without scoring.

It led to joyous celebrations from the sell-out crowd at BMO Field as Canada clinched World Cup qualification for only the second time.

“We just qualified for the World Cup, this is a legit football country,” said Herdman, who last worked in England as an academy coach at Sunderland more than 20 years ago.

“I think this country never believed in us because we’ve given them nothing to believe in. They believe now.

The United States, Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama are all in contention for the final two automatic Concacaf qualification spots for the 2022 World Cup, which starts on 21 November.

Costa Rica, in fourth place, would need a big win against the US and for results to go their way to finish in the top three.

The fourth-placed country in the eight-team table earns a play-off against the winner of Wednesday’s final of Oceania qualifying between the Solomon Islands and New Zealand.
