In the latest episode of the CanPL.ca Newsroom, hosts Marty Thompson, Charlie O’Connor Clarke, Benedict Rhodes, and Brady Reid dissect the Canadian men’s national team’s opening match in the final round of 2022 World Cup qualifying – a 1-1 draw with Honduras. The gang does in-depth on coach John Herdman’s tactical shifts, Alistair Johnston’s brilliant play in defence, Milan Borjan’s importance to the team, and, of course, just what to make of Canada’s first foray into the Concacaf final round in over two decades. Plus, a quick CanPL midweek review including commiseration for FC Edmonton as they failed to win another Al Classico derby vs. Cavalry FC, and how Atletico Ottawa keeps finding ways to get results at home, this time against York United.
