The Canadian football team said on Thursday that Canada, which tops the rankings for the World Cup qualifiers in Central, North America and the Caribbean, will play against the United States in an outdoor home in Hamilton, Ontario in January. This will definitely be a cold game.
The decision was announced nine days after host Canada defeated Mexico 2-1 in Edmonton, where the snow and cold temperatures may have helped them win.
“We are very happy to bring the men’s national team FIFA World Cup qualifiers to Hamilton in January. The team is supported nationwide and the performance of the Edmontonians in November is incredible,” Canadian Football President Nick Bontis said at a press conference.
