Canada has cracked the top 50 in the FIFA world rankings, climbing three places to No. 48 in the latest numbers. 

 

The Canadian men started the year at No. 72 but have steadily risen thanks to a 11-2-4 record in 2021 that has seen John Herdman’s team make the final round of World Cup qualifying in CONCACAF, which covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.

 

Canada’s lone losses have been to the U.S. and Mexico at the Gold Cup. The Canadians have outscored their opposition 52-10 the year.

Canada has a very good chance at qualifying for the 2022 world cup.  Glad to see they are not wasting the careers of Jonathan David and Alphonso Davies.

Canada and soccer is like Jamaica and bobsledding. There better be a movie made about this journey.

I wouldn't classify Canada as Jamaican bobsledders when it comes to soccer. Our women's team is a absolute force and has been quite successful. It is a shame people don't give the women the recognition they deserve.

He also downplayed suggestions that this win over Mexico means Canada could now be considered among the elite nations in CONCACAF.

"Not until we get to Qatar," he said. "We've got to get to Qatar, and that's [what] I am asking this country to do, just keep our feet on the ground. Be Canadian, be humble. We've won nothing yet. We're on a bit of a roll at the minute … but let's keep our feet on the ground, and if we qualify for Qatar, then I think this whole country can celebrate and recognize the achievement."

Very few countries put much thought, effort or money into development of their national female soccer teams.

So when you have the same group of 4 or 8 or 12 powerhouses, compared to mens national teams, there is less interest.

Of the 9 world cups, USA has won 4, and Germany 2.
