    I think we all got fooled into thinking Canada could match up against anybody after doing so well against the "#2 team in the world".
    But it turns out Belgium is just really shit.

    Yeah, Belgium didn't look good at all against Canada or Morocco. Looks like Croatia and Morocco will be going through.

    Canada is still pretty raw as a group. They have potential and with more experience they should get better in the upcoming years.

    It's pretty insane how young this team is. Alphonso Davies will be just 25 years when the next world cup rolls around and all our other stars (David, Buchanon, etc) will be mid 20's too.

    The most exciting part is the next wave of talent that's coming up.

    Daniel Jebbison - youngest player in the English Premier League history to score in his debut.
    Luca Koleosho - Debut in Spain (2nd best league in the world) as a 17-year-old.
    Lucas Dias - 19-year-old playing for Sporting B in Portugal
    Marshall Rutty - Gets a lot of Alphonso Davies comps which is pretty unfair lol, but is strongly linked to Liverpool.

    Then off the top of my head, there is Sabbatasso, Brym, Breza, Mitovic, Okello, Nelson, Bassong, etc.

    OUT: Borjan, Victoria, Hoilett, Atiba, Wotherspoon.

    Canada soccer is just scratching its potential and this team is going to be really good for a really long time.

    We should make a rule that if you play with a tampon stuck up your nose, you don't get to represent Canada anymore.

    A 20+ million price tag would price him out of most teams; he would be looking at a move to the EPL or the biggest clubs in the top 5.

    Saying that though, he's the best player on a team in the knockout round in the Champions Leauge so he is not getting sold until the summer at the earliest.

    I also love how I have been on this board for almost 10 years and I don't know how to properly post a tweet.

    Tyler Adams is now my fav USA soccer player after how he handled all those politically charged questions.

    What a gem.
