Can Canadians do more than hockey? Group F matches before the World Cup


The Canadian and Moroccan teams will try to beat the favorites against the Belgian and Croatian teams. RIA Novosti Sport – About the members of Group F at the World Championships in Qatar.


Belgium national team - RIA Novosti, 1920, 19.11.2022
  • Final participation in the World Cup: 2018;

  • Best result in the World Cup: third place (2018).

Roberto Martinez’s team did not change much after the bronze medal in Russia. The Red Devils retained a top-notch roster made up of Kevin de Bruyne, Axel Witsel, Youri Tielemans and Thibaut Courtois. Even Eden Hazard looks much better in the national team than Real Madrid.

But Belgium is ready to surprise with new names at the World Cup. The national team counts on Charles de Quetelare. The offensive midfielder played great in two Champions League campaigns for Club Brugge and tried out the AC Milan jersey in the summer.

Another discovery was Leonardo Trossard. Midfielder “Brighton” is spending a bright part of his career. Besides scoring goals in the Nations League and in the qualifying round, he has a confident game in the current season of the Premier League.

Martinez’s men seem to be the obvious favorites of Group F. There are also questions about the national team. Is the team strong enough? Leading players play in leagues with tight schedules, the “physics” reserves in the World Cup may be running low. Will rookies fit the coaching model and displace old ones?


Canadian football player Milan Boryan
  • Final participation in the World Cup: 1986;

  • Best result in the World Cup: group stage (1986).

The Canadian team is returning to the World Cup after a 36-year hiatus. It is safe to say that the team from North America was the most interesting participant.

Canada was taken to the World Cup by John Herdman. The specialist has never played professional football. The Englishman’s career began in his student years. Then young Herdman began educating elementary school children.

He later moved to New Zealand. Herdman managed the women’s national team there. Five years later she took a similar position in Canada. The coach took the medals of the Pan American and Olympic Games with girls from North America.

Herdman began working with Maple Leaves in January 2018. During this time, the level of the team has increased significantly. Canadians started playing open attack football.

Young talents form the backbone of the team. Alphonso Davies plays for Bayern and Jonathan David scores for Lille.

North Americans lack experience in major international tournaments. But Canada will catch fire at the World Cup. You can be sure. Herdman’s team could surprise with an open game with group favorites and lots of goals.


Fans of the Moroccan national team - RIA Novosti, 1920, 11/19/2022
  • Final participation in the World Cup: 2018;

  • Best result in the World Cup: 1/8 final (1986).

The African team would almost make a splash in 2018. The Moroccans did not have enough time to maintain the winning score in the match against Spain and make it to the playoffs. Despite his early departure, the national team was noted for his dedication and intransigence.

Another blow in a group with strong rivals does not cause much panic among Walid Regraga’s wards. The lions stand out with their uncompromising games and struggles until the last second. A nice bonus is the presence of star players in the composition.

Ashraf Hakimi is irreplaceable in PSG and the best right-back in the world. Romain Saiss remains a national favorite in his homeland. The duet of Youssef en-Nessiri and Munir al-Haddadi in Seville is a powerful force.

The country believes in a brilliant leader game. Some even believe the team will make it to the playoffs.


Luka Modric - RIA Novosti, 1920, 11/19/2022
  • Final participation in the World Cup: 2018;

  • Best result in the World Cup: tournament finalist (2018).

Zlatko Dalic made little changes in the drafts after the silver medal in Russia. The Croatian national team still counts on Luka Modric, for whom the tournament in Qatar will be his last.

Coach continues to rely on the other participants of the 2018 World Cup. Domagoj Vida is regularly called up to the national team. On the wing, Ivan Perisic is messing up the transfer and Dejan Lovren, familiar with his performances at Zenit, works reliably on the defence.

Among the newcomers, Joshko Guardiola also draws attention. He constantly plays for RB Leipzig. Former RPL players Mario Pasalic and Nikola Vlašić initially secured a spot.

The team was selected in class. The Croats pissed off the fans by prolonging the dispute for a direct ticket to the final round. There, unfortunately for the Russians, they beat the team of Valery Karpin.

It seems that leaving the group in Qatar will not be a problem. Unless, of course, notorious foreigners surprise you.
