These are exciting times for fans of the Canadian National Team, who will be making its 15th Gold Cup appearance. The 2000 Gold Cup champions are full of emerging stars in world football, including DF and 2019-20 UEFA Champions League winner Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich. Up front, there is FW and 2019 Gold Cup Golden Boot winner Jonathan David, who at 20 years old is turning heads everywhere with his goal-scoring exploits. A record-setting group stage in 2019 ended with a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Haiti in the quarterfinals, so there is no doubt that Head Coach John Herdman will have a very motivated side to start the 2021 edition.
