Canada got an important 2-1 win over Mexico at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton for round 8th of the Concacaf World Cup Qualifiers 2022. With this victory, the Canadians are now at the top of the standings with 16 points, one more than the United States.
The preview of the match was marked by the cold weather in Edmonton. The teams had to play in a field covered in snow, which certainly wasn’t the most comfortable situation for the visitors. It was a ‘do or die’ kind of match, and both teams were intense from the beginning, with Lozano and Henry being booked in the first half.
When it seemed like they were going to the halftime 0-0, Johnston shot to goal and Ochoa left a rebound after the save, which Cyle Larin didn’t miss to make it 1-0. But Larin didn’t stop there because he appeared again to score the second at the 52nd minute. Hector Herrera discounted at 90th minute. It's the second defeat in a row for Mexico, who are now third in the standings. Here, check out the highlights and goals from this match.
