The Future Speaks Spanglish!
Although soccer has enjoyed high participation rates throughout Canada for many years, Canada is generally not considered a serious contender in soccer at the international level. This could all change soon. Looking over recent devlopments, it is evident that the stage is set for soccer in Canada to rise and reach new heights.
The benchmark for soccer is typically associated with FIFA world rankings and FIFA World Cup records. The men's team, currently ranked 122, participated in one World Cup tournament (1986 World Cup Mexico) and lost all matches without scoring a goal. The women's team, currently ranked 8, participated in 5 World Cups and reached 4th place in 2003 World Cup USA.
