Canada qualifies for first World Cup since 1986
After failing to clinch a spot on Thursday, with a 1-0 away loss to Costa Rica, Canada returned home with renewed purpose and a chance to complete the job in front of a frenzied, flag-waving and sold-out crowd of nearly 30,000 at BMO Field.
Canada will play at the World Cup for the first time since 1986 in Mexico, where it lost all three of its games and failed to score a goal.
