All that joy in the picture & all I can think is that it looks depressingly cold. Dunno how you Cananananadian's do it.

Oh, it was cold, but we're used to it.


Just for Eddie, your favourite player Ravel Morrison was starting for Jamaica. He did nothing of note, so I guess the death penalty can be rescinded.

I hate that fucking ground. SRK is that real grass or artificial on it? Doesn't BMO field double down as an American football stadium as well?

It's a weird hybrid of real and fake grass. Aside from the wind making long balls swerve all over the place, the ball seemed to die whenever it hit the ground.

Random aside: Canada has joined the "play it out from the back" movement, which makes me appreciate how incredible Ederson is all the more. Never scared when a defender is closing him down, but when some random Jamaican started closing down Borjan, you just want to yell "BOOT IT, FOR FUCKS SAKE".

Senegsl through on penalties against Egypt after Salah blazed his over.

Ghana knock out Nigeria which I think means Canada might be in pot 3 for the draw (if they beat Panama) but guess that will be clearer soon enough.

leonardo bonucci moaning about the qualifying system.

www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-10667255/Leonardo-Bonucci-hits-ABSURD-World-Cup-qualifying-system.html

i think the african qualifying is harsh.

top ya section and straight into a two leg tie with another side that topped a section.

he is right about the one game thing though.

especially when u dominate by 32 shots to 4. :D

Not much point moaning about it now given that the next tournament will be 48 teams so no 'big' teams ever have to worry about not qualifying again.

UEFA - 16
Africa - 9
Asia - 8(!)
N. America - 6
S. America - 6
Oceania - 1
Playoffs - 2

Hope you're looking forward to Oman v DR Congo in 2026.

Sorry to hear that Bonucci doesn't think a one legged home tie against North Macedonia was fair though.

I think we found one of the 10 games that'll be given to Canada! (aside from our 3, natch.)

Don't think there's much difference between pots 3 and 4 tbh

They should have 128 Teams and it should be knockout from day one.

Could probably make an argument that pot 4 has harder opponents than 3 tbh, especially if Wales/Costa Rica/Peru get through.
