Canada stunned the CONCACAF area by placing top in regional World Cup qualification and qualifying for the country’s first men’s World Cup since 1986. Now, as his side prepares for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, manager John Herdman hopes to turn more heads.

Les Rouges will face fellow World Cup opponents in a pair of international friendlies in Europe in September. On Friday, they face World Cup host nation Qatar, followed by a match against Uruguay on Tuesday.

The Qatar match is a one-of-a-kind challenge. While the Maroons are not considered favorites to move from World Cup Group A, they are an extremely deep and experienced team with a well-established playing style that may create an upset or two in their quest to reach the knockout round on home soil.

Herdman will aim for the same with his Canada team, which will face stronger competition in Group F. The fact that this will be Les Rouges’ first opponent outside of the North American area since their World Cup qualification adventure began in 2018 adds to the difficulty.

Given the lack of uncertainty around many of Canada’s final World Cup squad berths, Herdman will most likely use these two September friendlies to establish camaraderie and tactical knowledge. The Canada squad’s key players, such as Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David, should enjoy plenty of playing time.

Herdman’s few judgments will be primarily in the background. Defenders Derek Cornelius and Joel Waterman, who makes his debut with the squad in 2022, are competing for roster slots.

Canada lineup (4-3-3): 

  • Borjan (GK)
  • Waterman
  • Vitoria
  • Miller
  • Laryea
  • Eustaquio
  • Kaye
  • Davies
  • Buchanan
  • Larin
  • David

Qatar are not anticipated to challenge for the World Cup, but the team might cause difficulties in a weak Group A. Eight players in the current team for international friendlies have more than 75 international caps, and three have more than 100, including 31-year-old captain Hassan Al-Haydos, who has an astonishing 163 international appearances, matching him for 19th all-time. He has not been on the team since last fall and will now try to reintegrate.

Qatar lineup (3-5-2): 

  • Zakaria (GK)
  • Miguel
  • Al-Rawi
  • Waad
  • Hassan
  • Afif
  • Hatem
  • Asad
  • Al-Haydos
  • Ali
  • Alaaeldin.
