With the Canadian women's national team set to compete in the Olympic Games this summer, it's easy to forget that the men are still playing competitive fixtures. Either way, both the Canadian men's and women's soccer teams have some exciting action to look ahead to as they prepare to face teams from all around the globe. In the world of sports betting, this also means more chances to bet on a sport that has gained popularity in Canada during recent years.
How To Bet On Canada National Team
The key towards making any successful bet is to regularly stay informed about the team's schedule, upcoming opponents, and game results. We have you covered on all accords.
If you're a supporter of the Canadian national team, you have more in store ahead of you than you probably think. While the 2018 FIFA World Cup might still seem ages away, since January of last year, the team has been competing in several CONCACAF qualification rounds and has currently made it to the fourth one, which will finish by September of this year. If Canada manages to get past the current round, it will have a chance to qualify for a World Cup spot in the next round.
Canada National Team Next Game
Before betting any money, remember to first have a look at the next opponent that the team will be facing. Odds can vary significantly depending on the opponent.
In a contest to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Canadian national soccer team's next challenge will be to get past Mexico on March 25th and 29th, the first game which will take place at BC Place in Vancouver. Canada last played Mexico in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, where the team dropped a 2-0 decision. Against a team that has made several World Cup appearances, including the last one in 2014, Canada will be expecting some difficult challenges ahead.
Canada National Team Schedule
Remember to stay on top of the team's gaming schedule, which has plenty of information you need to know about what the odds ahead are like if you are looking to place a wager.
With the Olympic Games on the horizon for the women's team, it is easily forgotten that the men's team is also currently competing to qualify for the upcoming FIFA World Cup. After facing Mexico later this month, the Canadian national team will play against Honduras and El Salvador in September.
Making Its Second FIFA World Cup Appearance
The Canadian national team is yet to make a splash on the international stage. As of currently, Canada has only made one FIFA World Cup appearance, which was thirty years ago in 1986. That year, the team came out winless and finished last in its group. Compared to the last World Cup in 2014, where Canada didn't even make it past the third round, this year has been an improvement for the team.
