Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Canada play host to Bermuda at Commonwealth Stadium in the opening match of their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign. The Canadians have big ambitions for the upcoming qualifying campaign, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football match. One of the men to watch in the home team will be Besiktas footballer Cyle Larin, while Crvena Zvezda goalkeeper Milan Borjan should start in goal.
Bermuda, on the other hand, were beaten by Canada in each of the previous two encounters with Les Rouges, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Cambridge United midfielder Reggie Lambe is one of the most notable players in the away team. Anyhow, Canada are more of a team than Bermuda, and we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Thursday’s qualifier at Commonwealth Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Scott Arfield):
Despite being born in Dechmont, Scotland, Scott Arfield represents Canada on the international stage. Arfield, though, played for Scotland U19 and U21 teams in the past and he made one appearance for Scotland B as well. Scott’s father, though, was born in Toronto, Canada and that is the main reason why he decided to play for the Canada national football team.
The Burnley midfielder made his Canada debut on March 25, 2016 in a 3-0 loss to Mexico. Scott Arfield began his club career at Falkirk and he scored 13 goals in 108 appearances in the league for the Scottish club. In 2010 he signed a deal with Huddersfield Town and he played for the Terriers from until 2013.
As previously mentioned, Arfield currently wear’s Burnley shirt, meaning that he is enjoying the Premier League football. You should bear in mind that the Scottish midfielder netted one goal for Burnley in the 2016/2017 season. He found the net in a 2-1 win over Everton on October 10, 2016.
Highlighted Team (Bermuda):
Bermuda are yet another team that are affiliated to the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF). The Gombey Warriors play their home games at Bermuda National Stadium, with the team wearing red kit when hosting their rivals.
The team’s away colour, on the other hand, is blue. Bermuda have yet to participate at the FIFA World Cup finals, but they will have a chance to prove their worth at the 2019 CONCACAF Championship. The Bermudans impressed in the qualifiers for the tournament, with the team scoring 17 goals in the process.
Leonard Shaun Goater is the team’s most notable player. The retired attacker played for the likes of Manchester City, Bristol City, Rotherham United and Reading during his football career and it has to be noted that he scored 32 goals in 36 appearances for the Bermuda national football team. Leonard Shaun Goater is still the team’s top scorer.
