The Remarkable Rise of Canada’s National Soccer Team

Eight years ago, Canada were ranked 122nd in the FIFA World Rankings, 107 places below their neighbours the United States, having lost 8-1 to Honduras in 2014 World Cup qualifying.

At the beginning of 2021, Canada still ranked 73rd, but now they are up in 33rd, an all time high, and are currently on course to qualify for their first World Cup since 1986, having gone unbeaten in their CONCACAF qualification campaign.

In this documentary, HITC Sevens takes a look at this incredible rise, the young Canadians making it possible, the work of Canada’s English head coach, and what Canada’s national football team might be possible of achieving at the 2022 and 2026 FIFA World Cups.
