Canada take on Haiti in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

The Canadians hold a 1-0 advantage from the first leg, so will be expected to progress with home advantage on their side.


Match preview

Canada have only qualified for a World Cup once in their entire history, so will be desperate to have a chance of doing so by progressing to the final round of CONCACAF qualifying.

Englishman John Herdman has been in charge of the Canadian national team since 2018, boasting a very impressive 80% win rate across his 21 matches as manager.

The latest of those 17 wins came in Haiti at the weekend, with Cyle Larin's 14th-minute winner edging Canada closer to joining the likes of Mexico and United States in the group-stage format, where 10 teams will fight for a place in Qatar next winter.

However, Herdman will be keen to guard his players against complacency, especially as there was little between the two nations on Saturday.

Haiti have also only ever qualified for the World Cup once in their entire history - when they lost all three group games in West Germany in 1974 - so will be equally determined to earn a chance to reach a second.

The Grenadiers were perhaps unfortunate to lose the first leg in a match of few chances, with only six shots on target across the 90 minutes.

Former Nantes defender Jean-Jacques Pierre, who took over the national team earlier this year, will have little choice but to set his side up more offensively on Tuesday as they attempt to overturn the deficit.

If they can keep things tight, they have every chance of doing so.

Team News

There is little doubt that Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies will be the most talented individual on the pitch on Tuesday.

Herdman deploys Canada in a 3-4-3 formation, which allows Davies to motor up the left flank in trademark fashion, but with Lille's Jonathan David and Besiktas' Larin forming a fearsome attack, they are clearly far from a one-man team.

Haiti, meanwhile, have considerably less quality within their ranks, with none of their current 23-man squad playing their domestic football in Europe's big five leagues.

Guingamp forward Frantzdy Pierrot has struck 10 times in only 18 caps for his country, though, so must be safeguarded by Davies and co.

Canada possible starting lineup:
Borjan; Johnston, Vitoria, Kennedy; Laryea, Eustaquio, Kaye, Davies; David, Larin, Osorio

Haiti possible starting lineup:
Placide; Ade, Lambese, Alceus, Geffrard; Pierrot, Lafrance, Simonsen, Christian, Etienne; Antoine


We say: Canada 2-0 Haiti

Canada should have too much quality to slip up against Haiti on Tuesday.

In Davies and David, Herdman's side have two of the most exciting young talents Canada have perhaps ever produced, which should prove to be the difference in the end.
