Canada’s Qualifying Process
Players must first be nominated by their provincial association to make the Canadian men’s national team. Players are then narrowed down to a final 22-man roster through a series of tryouts and international matches.
The process begins with provincial associations nominating players for the national team. The nominees must be between 18 and 23 years old, have played at least 50 full international matches (including senior level), and have not received any yellow cards in those matches. National teams then cast their votes on the top candidates from each province. Players who receive more than 50% of the vote are automatically nominated to the national team.
The final 22-man roster is then selected through a series of tryouts over several months in different parts of Canada. The players competing in these tryouts must have played at least three international matches within the past year, including two as part of Canada’s CONCACAF Nations League campaign. In addition, players must not have received any yellow cards in those three matches or during their previous 12 international appearances.
Players who do not make the final roster immediately can still be called up for future national team appearances. Still, they will no longer be considered for selection to the senior national team.

Canada has been drawn into Group A with France, Australia, and Peru at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The 32-team tournament will be held in Qatar from June 21 to July 3. The Canadians are coming off a disappointing result at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, where they finished in third place behind Mexico and USA. However, Canada is confident they have what it takes to compete for a medal at the world’s biggest sporting event.
Canada’s 22-man roster features some of the country’s most experienced players, including Atiba Hutchinson, Will Johnson, Julian de Guzman, Tosaint Ricketts, Tesho Akindele, and Raheem Edwards. Head coach Benito Floro has chosen a squad he believes can challenge for honors at the World Cup. “We want to show our fans that we are going to fight for them and give our all on the pitch,” said Floro. “This is our chance to really show everyone what we can do as a team and create some great memories together.”
Despite their poor showing at this year’s Gold Cup, Canada remains one of CONCACAF’s top nations. They made it to the quarterfinals of the 2006 World Cup, where Italy eliminated them after regulation time and penalty kicks. The Canadians also reached the semifinals of the 2010 World Cup before losing 1
The Path to the Quarterfinals
The World Cup is finally here, and Canada is looking to make a splash in its first-ever appearance. To begin their journey, they will need to get past Costa Rica.
Although they have not been as successful as they would have liked lately, the Canadians are still confident players. Head Coach John Herdman is one of the best in the business and has assembled an experienced roster that includes some exciting young talent.
Captain (and quarterback) Christine Sinclair will be looking for her ninth World Cup goal to tie Brazil’s Marta for the record. She has been one of the stars of Canada’s recent performances and will be relied on heavily in this tournament.
The other key player for Canada is veteran defender Kadeisha Buchanan. She has played at the highest level for her country and can provide leadership on defense and offense. With so much experience under their belts, it will be important for Canada to stay relaxed and play with freedom on the field.
They have already faced Sweden twice this year, winning both games by narrow margins. If they can take down Costa Rica this weekend, they will face France in their next match-up. Although France has had a strong showing thus far in the tournament, they are still newbies compared to some of the other teams at this event. If Canada can get through that match unscathed, they will likely advance to the knockout stages, where anything could happen.
