Alfonso Davies’ team – a Bayern professional standing on the pitch for 88 minutes – beat Mexico 2-1 (1-0) in snow-capped Edmonton on Tuesday (local time).

Striker Syl Larin, (45th + 2/52nd), under contract with Besiktas since the summer of 2020, beat Canada with a brace for the win against Mexico. Atletico professional Hector Herrera (90th) scored a late goal. If the Canadians qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, it will be their second participation in Mexico since 1986.

The success brought Canada to the top of the qualifying group for North and Central America. After eight games, the Canadian players are 16 points ahead of the United States (15 points).

Earlier on Tuesday, they had only split 1:1 (1:1) from Jamaica with Remis. Lilles Timothy V gave the American team an early lead (11th), which was countered by West Ham Hurricane Tank Michael Antonio just eleven minutes later. After the Americans, Mexico is the last direct World Cup qualifier with 14 points.
