After a 16-month hiatus, a Canadian men's national team squad has been announced for a competitive match!
Peter and Thomas break down that 24-man roster for Canada's opening World Cup qualifiers against Bermuda and the Cayman Islands position-by-position. They also listen to John Herdman's comments from his media availability on Tuesday to try and decipher some burning questions about the team.
To lighten the mood, the guys chat to former CSA media officer and journalist Gavin Day about his various excursions in Concacaf, the travel experiences, his favourite places to visit, covering the national team against Diego Maradona's Argentina at the Estadio Monumental and more.
Peter and Thomas also recap the U-23s' performance at the Concacaf Olympic qualifiers so far. What's gone well? What needs improving? What are the team's chances against Honduras?
They close out the show with a conversation with Waking the Red's Mitchell Tierney about Toronto FC extending Ali Curtis and Bill Manning, the potential areas to address within the squad, 2021 expectations and more!
