From the start of the match, it was a historic night for Canadian football.
It started with weather that was scheduled at 16 degrees when the take off started, Leading the place called Estadio “IcetecaSnow and cold conditions were the main events that went into the game, so it was expected to dominate the match.
Subsequently, Atiba Hutchinson was selected for the starting lineup. As a result, he scored his 90th game to break the record for a national team appearance ever for a male player, surpassing his former teammate Julian de Guzman in the process.
The evening ended with Canada’s first victory over Mexico in a World Cup qualifier in 45 years. Since Buzz Parsons’ victory at Empire Stadium in Vancouver in 1976, the Canadian side have been defeated tripartite in qualification.
Until then, Kyle Larrain had repeated the achievement at Commonwealth Stadium to match another Canadian record. More on that later.
That result, along with draws in the United States and Mexico, cancels out disappointing draws with Honduras at home and Jamaica in Kingston. After eight of 14 matches at the Octagonal, Canada has topped the standings.
