The statement said that talks between the association and the team, which have qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 36 years, have been going on since March. Canada Soccer initially called talks “unnecessarily lengthy” and submitted an insufficient offer only on Thursday.
“For these reasons, we have reluctantly decided not to play our game against Panama tonight,” said the team of Bayern Munich full-back Alfonso Davies. “It is time we stand up for the future of football in Canada.”

The game was originally scheduled to be played on 5 June, with Panama as substitute opponents.
