Canada vs El Salvador build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Following a Gold Cup semi-final appearance in the summer, Canada will be feeling good about themselves as they aim to qualify for a first World Cup since 1986, which also happens to be their only showing in football’s most decorated competition. Les Rouges opened this Third Round stage of North America’s qualification table with a somewhat underwhelming draw to Honduras, before collecting a valuable point against arguably the CONCACAF favourites in the United States.
El Salvador likewise have not been in a World Cup since the 80s, though their absence has been slightly longer than Canada, not featuring since the 1982 edition in Spain, with their only other appearance coming in 1970. La Selecta have made a promising start after they kept a lid on the United States on matchday one, drawing 0-0, before replicating that clean sheet and point against Honduras last time out. Perez’s men are yet to score, but they are also yet to concede.
- Canada (vs USA): Borjan; Johnston, Henry, Kennedy; Laryea, Eustaquio, Kaye, Adekugbe; Hoilett, Davies*, Larin.
- El Salvador (vs Honduras): Martinez; Tamacas, Zavaleta, Gomez, Larin; Ceren, Orellana, Roldan; Monterrosa, Henriquez, Rivas.
The key injury news for this fixture is that Alphonso Davies has returned to Germany and will not participate in this match after sustaining an unspecified injury (believed to be a leg injury) on Sunday. The versatile Bayern Munich defender was not at training on Tuesday and is now thought to have travelled back to Bavaria.

Player to watch: Jonathan David (Canada and Lille)
The term gets tossed about far too often these days, but this could arguably be Canada’s ‘Golden Generation’. Alphonso Davies is, of course, the star of the show, the centrepiece of this current version of the national side, but in Jonathan David they have another player with world-class potential. The 21-year-old forward already has 15 goals in just 18 caps, but it has been at club level where the the Brooklyn-born attacker has truly established his name. During his maiden campaign for Lille, Les Dogues defied all expectations to wrestle the Ligue 1 title off perennial champions PSG, with David responsible for 15 goals (13 strikes, two assists). It was a historic moment in Lille history, and David will now be looking to mimic that fairytale story by guiding his nation to a first World Cup in over 30 years.
