Canada will look to consolidate their position in the automatic qualification places for next year’s World Cup when they welcome Costa Rica to Edmonton on Saturday at 2.05am (UK time).
John Herdman’s Canucks currently occupy the final qualification place in North America’s Final Round table, but fifth-placed Costa Rica could close the gap between the two nations to just one point if they produce a win this weekend.

Canada vs Costa Rica build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Canada remain one of two nations still unbeaten in this final phase of CONCACAF’s qualification campaign for Qatar 2022, but their two wins from six games remains a concerning return if they want to make football’s quadrennial tournament for the first time since 1986. The draw specialists of the continent, head coach Herdman will be looking to stretch the nation’s unbeaten run but they need to start turning stalemates into victories if they want to keep on the heels of USA and Mexico.
Costa Rica, meanwhile, have been a regular fixture at football’s global event in recent times, but their place at the 2022 World Cup table is in serious jeopardy if they continue on their current trajectory. Luis Fernando Suarez’s men have won just one of their opening six games, but have eight fixtures to turn it around and push for the top three. A win here away from home comforts would send out a huge statement of intent and make things seriously tight in the upper slopes of the table.
- Canada (vs Panama): Crepeau; Johnston, Vitoria, Miller; Buchanan, Wotherspoon, Eustaquio, Osorio, Laryea; Davies, David.
- Costa Rica (vs USA): Navas; Blanco, Duarte, Calvo, Matarrita; Borges, Tejeda, Fuller, Ruiz, Venegas; Moya.
