Canada will face Jamaica on Sunday: 2022 World Cup Qualifying

The FIFA World Cup Qualifiers began this week and will continue into the weekend. Jamaica are set to host Canada at Independence Park on Sunday.

Jamaica are one of three teams in the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers yet to win a game so far. They were beaten 2-0 by the USA on Friday, their third loss in four qualifying games so far.

The Reggae Boyz sit at the bottom of the group with just one point and have managed to score just two goals so far. Their last World Cup appearance was also the nation's only World Cup appearance, which came back in 1998 and are well on course to miss out on next year's edition as well.

Canada on the other hand are one of three teams in the CONCACAF without defeat in their World Cup Qualifiers so far. They drew 1-1 against Mexico in their last game, making it their third draw in four qualifying games.

Les Rouges sit third in the group, two points behind the first and second-placed teams, USA and Mexico. They are chasing their first World Cup appearance in over 30 years.
