Canucks in Qatar - Episode 7: Full preview of Canada vs. Croatia 🎧
'Canucks in Qatar' is a soccer podcast from theScore, tracking Canada's men's national team as it returns to the World Cup for the first time since 1986. From exclusive interviews to in-depth match previews and analysis, our hosts will explore John Herdman's charges from every angle before, during, and after this winter's tournament. Led by superstar Alphonso Davies and a collection of burgeoning young players, Canada's men's team is enjoying a meteoric rise. The World Cup is only the beginning.
Right back at it. After doing an impressive job of shackling Kevin De Bruyne and Belgium in their opening World Cup match, the task doesn't get any easier for the Canadians, who must replicate that performance against Luka Modric and Croatia. What tweaks, if any, should John Herdman make to his lineup? Will Canada come out with the same aggressive approach we saw in the unfortunate loss to Belgium? And can the Canucks be more clinical in front of goal? Featuring an interview with Croatian football journalist Aleksandar Holiga (17:13), Episode 7 answers those questions, breaks down the tactics on both sides, and predicts how the match will unfold.
