Liam Miller talks about potential Canada coup: “It would be a huge deal”
FCB winger Liam Miller talks about his scoring skills and the upcoming exploits he could face after a 4-2 win against GC in his home country of Canada.
Do you know who is currently the top FCB goalscorer?
Liam Miller: Yes, I know. Before the game, Valentin Stocker and I were the same, now I am. (laughs)
Why did things get exciting again today after your initial goal?
We took our foot off the gas pedal a little. But we showed our morale and got a crucial equalizer before the break. Overall it was pretty good.
But not as impressive as compared to Marseille.
No. But in the end it doesn’t matter how we win. It is more important that we win and we are on the right track at the moment. We haven’t had three consecutive wins in a long time.
Special days are waiting for you. You can qualify for the World Cup with the Canadian national team. What if it is successful?
It will be very special as Canada has not been to the World Cup since 1986. This will be a big deal for the whole country. We are undefeated at the moment and are in first place, but we still have three games left after which we need to be at least third. But of course we want to remain undefeated. Then we go to Qatar!
What if you make it?
The whole country will be thrilled. You can really see how football has changed in Canada. When I started playing for the national team, we probably played in front of 10,000 fans. The games are already sold out. This reflects the promotion we have created. I am very proud to be part of this team.
With this starting position how is it for you personally to get on the plane today?
A very special feeling. I am always happy to go back to Canada internationally. But this time the expectation is even higher.
Aren’t you tired of many hours of flying?
Of course, traveling a lot isn’t easy. It is now five hours from Toronto to Costa Rica and back before going back to Panama. But I am used to it. That too is part of football.
