Canada's Gold Cup 2005 Chances?

With the Gold Cup just around the corner, what are Canada's chances in

this tournament? IMHO the first game against Costa Rica will decide how

Canada does. A win and we're off and running, a draw and the pressure,

mounts, and a defeat, well we will be in a little trouble with the next game

against the Americans.

Canada has nothing. As much as i would like to believe the soccer program in canada is developing it has nothing to devolop on. But i think with soccers growing popularity in the states will start to propel soccer in canada. In the meantime all we can hope for is Gold cup succes but maybe oneday gold will be changed to World

People think that way about hockey as well. Hockey in Canada is alive and

well yet America still sucks at the game. All Canadian soccer needs is a

league to play in then we will be fie.

Only in the United States it did you nimwad. Canada's just waiting for it to start up, as soon as it does it'll be all good.

As for Canada's football....MASSIVE POTENTIAL. MASSIVE.

Look, when the current Canada players were kids, barely anyone knew soccer existed.Both my parents weren't even aware professional soccer was around until the late 1980s! Now, Canada (at least where I am) is football mad, when liverpool won the CL I saw people on the streets doing the Dudek Dance. Gazillions more people are watching.....and PLAYING (!) soccer, more then ever before. IT won't be a surprise when the number of footballers exported to europe will go up exponentially in the next decade. I have every reason to be optimistic about Canada's future in the world of football.

All we need is a proper Canadian league or enough big Canadian cities in MLS then soccer will start to come round. soccer is popular all over Canada, not just one part of it, a bit of success at the gold cup might go a long way for making up after that terrible wcq campaign. Go Canada Go

I live in Caanda, but what the hell is the Gold Cup?

The Gold Cup is our version of the european championships/south american,

etc. Canada won in 2000 and runners up in 2002? Where were you the JMC

school of Canadian soccer? We are not favored this time, we will be lucky

to win a match under Frank yallops leadership, then we wait till the 2007

Gold Cup then off to wcq in 2008 where we will go out early yet again, this

keeps repeating till 2018 when we should qualify for the wc again.
