Canada have set a new national team record after the big win over Cayman Islands in the second game of their World Cup qualifiers. Canada have been drawn in Group B in the first round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in the Concacaf section.
Canada started the first round of the Concacaf qualifiers with a 5-1 win at home to Bermuda last week Wednesday. CyleLarin was the star of the show after he scored a treble with Richie Laryea and Theo Corbeanu getting the other goals for Canada.
Lowly Cayman Islands were the next victims for Canada and their encounter ended in an 11-0 mauling. Hattrick hero Larin was also on target against Cayman Islands as he doubled the lead given to Canada by Frank Sturing.
David Wotherspoon and Alistair Johnston also scored for Canada against Cayman Islands, while Bayern Munich star Alphonse Davies, Mark-Anthony Kaye and Lucas Cavallini scored more than once.
Davies and Kaye scored twice, while Cavallini came off the bench to score a second half hattrick for his country.
Canada will face hosts Aruba in their next game in June before taking on Suriname in their final game in Group B in the same month. Just like Canada, Suriname also have a perfect record in the qualifiers. The two games against second-from-bottom team Aruba and Suriname in three months’ time will decide the fate of Canada and manager John Herdmen as regards the qualifier. Those two games will determine whether Canada move into the second round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in the Concacaf region.
