The Canadian team surprised in the octagon of Concacaf and became the first team in the region to earn their pass for Qatar 2022 World Cup. Those led by John Herdman dominated the tournament and managed to qualify for the top event of the World Cup. However, among the protagonists of this realization there are a lot of flags, because several players have dual nationality.
The convincing work of the Canadian Federation has been optimal. The process has helped many football players make the decision to represent the team that Concacaf leads today. Up to 21 players who were part of the call-ups have another nationality, meaning they may have represented other countries.
Colombia, England, Portugal and even the Ivory Coast, are some of the countries involved in this great scouting work. Undoubtedly, this was one of the keys to Herdman will have a bigger universe of football players and could achieve the big goal which was to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
