In the CONCACAF 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, Canada will host Jamaica at the BMO Field on Sunday night.

Canada tasted defeat for the first time in their World Cup qualifying campaign, losing 1-0 to Costa Rica last time out. They found themselves a man down and a goal behind at the break. They tried to fight their way back into the game but fell short.

Victory would have sealed the table toppers' berth at Qatar 2022, but they have another opportunity to do so on Sunday.

Despite the defeat, the Canucks remain atop the standings with 25 points from 12 games. They will now look to clinch only their second-ever World Cup appearance with a win this weekend.

Jamaica, meanwhile, are out of the running for FIFA World Cup qualification. They played a 1-1 draw against El Salvador in their last game. They perhaps deserved more from the game but failed to convert their chances.

The Reggae Boyz are seventh in the group with just eight points. They will look to return to winning ways and end their disappointing World Cup qualifying campaign on a high.

Canada vs Jamaica Prediction

Canada's defeat to Costa Rica snapped their six-game winning streak and their 11-game unbeaten run in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers. They have, howeve,r been rock solid on home turf and will fancy their chances of clinching a World Cup spot in front of their fans.

Jamaica, meanwhile, are on a seven-game winless streak and have won just one of their last 15 games across competitions. The hosts should win this one.

Prediction: Canada 2-0 Jamaica
