This will be the second appearance for the Canadian team at the FIFA World Cup 2022. In their first match of the tournament, Canada will play Belgium at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan on November 23, 2022, in their first match of the tournament. The Canadian national team has been placed in Group F of the FIFA World Cup 2022 along with Belgium, Morocco, and Croatia.
There is expected to be a name announced in October for the Canada World Cup 2022 squad. After finishing atop the CONCACAF section of qualifying for the tournament, John Herdman’s side booked their spot at the tournament.
This will be Canada’s first appearance at a World Cup since 1986, and its second appearance in the tournament overall. A year ago, Canada did not score a goal in any of its three games and lost all three games in the only previous edition in which they competed. There can be no doubt that they will be hoping for a better outcome in Qatar than what happened in Saudi Arabia.

Is Canada allowed to take a certain number of players to the Fifa World Cup 2022?
For the first time at a major tournament, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while last year’s Copa America allowed managers to bring squads of 28 players, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A 26-player squad has now been announced for the Qatar World Cup, which is an increase from the usual 23-man squads that have been used in the past.
Is there an official announcement date for the final Canada Fifa World Cup 2022 squad?
The 2022 World Cup will be held in November and December of that year. As a result of the extreme temperatures in Qatar in the middle of the year, the tournament was moved from its usual slot in June and July.
By October 20, 30 days before Senegal’s opening match against the Netherlands, national team managers must name their squads. Before whittling down their traveling parties to 23 (or 26) names for each country in time for the deadline, most countries will first pick their preliminary squads and then whittle them down to 23 (or 26) names.
What is the final lineup for the Canada Fifa World Cup 2022 squad that will be selected?
In March, Alphonso Davies had to miss the most recent round of qualifiers due to an injury, but the Bayern Munich midfielder is expected to be on John Herdman’s squad list from the beginning of the season. There is no doubt that he, along with Lille striker Jonathan David, are two of the most important players on this team.
As far as we know, Atiba Hutchinson will be approaching his 40th birthday by the time the action gets underway in Doha. However, the Canadian captain will be on the plane to Doha as long as he is in good health. Reading’s Junior Hoilett and Milan Borjan, the 34-year-old goalkeeper, will also be able to provide additional experience as they travel to the Premier League.
Another player who is expected to receive a call-up to play for the team in the tournament is Lucas Cavallini, a forward who plays club football for the Vancouver Whitecaps.
