I will say Herdman was profoundly stupid in giving Croatia bulletin board material after the Belgium game.  Croatia loves to use stuff like that to boost their game

Yes stupid but I don't buy that bulletin board stuff.

With the next World Cup being in Canada as well, I think the experience of this one and 4 more years of development will put Canada in a good spot for that tournament.

You might not buy it, but the Croatian players did

with Messi being talked about going to Inter Miami could Rinaldo end up in MLS hopefully with TFC

I wouldn't be shocked if Ronaldo ends up in MLS but if he does I will almost guarantee it will be in LA.

It's the World Cup. If any player isn't 100% motivated to win already they probably shouldn't be playing.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

This is Qatar's defense. It was "only"" 400-500 deaths. I mean, forget for a second how much of a monster you have to be with being ok with even that many deaths but imagine being such a poorly run enterprise that you don't even know whether or not 100 people who built your stadiums died in the process?

This feels like one of those areas where we can declare a little cultural advantage here. There's a lot of problems with NA sports but I'm pretty confident that if anyone died building the ACC then A) they were a reasonably well compensated professional and B) the people in charge knew about it.

To bad he finished playing like crap, should have had the 2nd goal and it was more on the D man and his limp pass on the first goal that set up that goal.

Again its baby steps and we made it and competed well against Belgium. I am proud of the guys but you don't sit Richie Laryea on the first half of what was an important win or tie for us.

Lets meet in 4 years at BMO field and cheer on the hometeam.

I mean they lost the game they probably deserved to win against Belgium but I think losing the games to Croatia and Morocco were fair.  It's good experience for 4 years from now and ultimately these tournament appearances do help to generate the next era of Canadian football/soccer.

I don't think we should be overly disappointed with the 0-3 record although I do thing that getting outscored 7-2 was slightly disappointing.

Canada's group

Croatia - into the final four
Morocco - up 1-0 at the half against Portugal in their quarter final

Canada really got a tough draw.  Herdman's tactics weren't the best and inexperience really let them down on their finish in the first game against Belgium.  Moral victories don't mean a lot but they were really in tough.
