The meeting between Belgium and Canada also spoke volumes about how football can be cruel, and the better team doesn’t always win on the pitch. The Red Devils were the absolute favourites, as they are one of the strongest national teams in the world, full of stars, and they won third place at the last World Cup in Russia. The Maple Leafs, on the other hand, are in the shadow of hockey players in their homeland, they qualified for the biggest football competition in the world for the first time in 36 years, and many described them as “outsiders” in Group F, which also includes Croatia and Morocco. But public opinion has changed.

Proved that they belong at the World Cup

The performance of Canada against Belgium, superiority on the field and a much higher number of shots on goal (as many as 13) than the rival, demonstrated combativeness and courage… The world applauded the selected team, which fairly tortured the Belgians, and their plans were additionally spoiled by controversial refereeing decisions. because of which they could take at least two more 11-meter penalties in the first half.

The Red Devils almost scored the winner from the only dangerous shot on goal to go top of Group F, while Canada, after an excellent performance but a less than pleasing result, occupied the bottom of the table. “We had a chance to climb to the top of the table. That was our goal. We didn’t make it happen, but I can still be proud of the performance. However, we should have taken all three points in the first game,” the Canadian coach pointed out for BBC Sport John Herdman.

“The boys have shown progress. They proved that they belong at the World Cup. They made the fans proud,” said the 47-year-old strategist, who hails from England and has coached the Canadian men’s national team since 2018. Before that, he led the Canadian women’s team for seven years, taking them to third place in two Olympic tournaments ( 2012 and 2016), but now he is setting new milestones with the men’s national team.

After the match, which was fortunately won by Belgium after one of the few shots on goal, coach Herdman gathered the Canadian soccer players in a circle in the middle of the field, and then they went to Qatar for a round of honor. What did he tell them? ”I showed them the statistics. I showed them that they belong here. Go ahead. Now we’re going to fuck Croatia. It’s that simple. This is our goal now. I told the guys that I lost the first match with the women’s soccer team in the Olympic tournament in London (2012), and then we won third place. Canada’s first medal in 86 years. This is how we have to react to the defeat by Belgium in Qatar as well,” Herdman is optimistic before the tournament continues.

Croatia awaits him on Sunday, and then Morocco in the last round. If they play as well as they did against the Belgians, both of their next rivals could have huge problems with the relaxed and very proud Canadians. “If we believe in our abilities and maintain such good relationships in the team, we have a chance to succeed,” Herdman is convinced. His direct words, intended for Sunday’s match with Croatia, caused excitement among the firemen, especially the fans, as expected.

Dalić: I will discuss this with the players

The current world runners-up could serve as a special motivation for Sunday’s meeting, however important it is for promotion. Could the Canadian strategist achieve a counter-effect and, with his prediction, shoulder the shoulders of the Croats, who did not shine in the opening match in Qatar and only won a point against Morocco (0:0)?

Selector Zlatko Dalić, known for not wanting to engage in public controversy, he diplomatically stated that everyone has the right to express themselves. “I don’t want to bother with that. Our job is to speak on the field. Everyone has their own way of expressing themselves. But I don’t know how polite it is to say something like that. I will talk about it with the players, it can only motivate us,” the Croatian said. the strategist confirmed how such words from the Canadian camp could infuse them with additional strength.

Dalić, who was criticized by the Croatian public after his modest performance against Morocco (0:0), missing the more attacking and risky game of the Flames, praised Canada’s performance against Belgium. “They should beat Belgium. They are a very dangerous and attack-oriented national team. They worked very hard, but then lost the match because of one mistake. They showed a lot, there is no bad team in our group,” Dalić let it be known that there are no outsiders in Group F .
