The Canadian Men’s National Team started their 2010 World Cup mission with a 3-0 win yesterday against Saint Vincent & the Grenadines.
While Canada was watching European soccer on Sportsnet, there was no TV coverage of the NATIONAL team’s game.
Come on Canada. More people turn out in England for a friendly against the Faroe Islands than demand to see our national teams games. This is one day after TFC have had another sell-out at the National Soccer Stadium in Toronto.
But the National Soccer Stadium in Toronto isn’t going to see the return match between Canada and Saint Vincent & the Grenadines – that’s going to be this Friday night in Montreal at the Stade Saputo.
While I’d prefer to see the game in Toronto – as a fan – I’m also very pleased that it’s going to be in Monteal because then, perhaps, there’s more of a chance that the stadium will be packed and cheering our Canadian boys onto the next round of World Cup qualifying.
Seriously Canada — get behind this team. They’re good. They’re for real. And they’re making it to the World Cup.
