Canucks in Qatar - Episode 9: Previewing Canada's World Cup finale vs. Morocco 🎧
'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.
A meaningless match? Hardly. Despite already being eliminated from contention for the last 16, Canada goes into its final group game against high-flying Morocco with much to play for. The Canadian men are still seeking a first-ever World Cup win. Or even a first point. They have one more chance in Qatar. To do that, John Herdman's side will need to slow down a Moroccan team that has its eyes on top spot in Group F. Will Canada play with less pressure in its finale? Will Herdman make significant lineup adjustments? And how do you stop Achraf Hakimi and Hakim Ziyech? Featuring an interview with former national team head coach Stephen Hart (16:21), Episode 9 answers those questions, breaks down the tactics on both sides, and predicts how the match will unfold.
