Canada: a duel against Japan before the World Cup


Just one week before the FIFA World Cup, Canada's soccer team will meet Japan in a friendly match.

Canada Soccer confirmed everything in a press release on Wednesday. The match will take place on November 17.

“With an eight-week gap between our September games and our first FIFA World Cup match, it is important for our players to experience the experience of this level of international intensity with our preseason game against Japan, mentioned head coach John Herdman.

“Japan have consistently qualified for the knockout rounds of the last editions of the World Cup, so it will be a good test for our formation.”

Before that, in September, the representatives of the maple leaf will face those of Qatar and Uruguay in two more exhibition matches.

Recall that Canada is participating for the first time since 1986 in the World Cup, which will take place this year in Qatar. Belgium, Croatia and Morocco will be his first opponents.
