Canadian soccer reacts to CanMNT’s record-setting victory over Cayman Islands
A record-setting night for the Canadian men’s national team.
John Herdman’s side thrashed Cayman Islands 11-0 on Monday in their second Concacaf qualifying match for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar to record their biggest win in program history.
Les Rouges were up 6-0 at halftime with four players earning their first Canada goals: Frank Sturing, Mark-Anthony Kaye, Alistair Johnston, and David Wotherspoon. Lucas Cavallini scored an eight-minute hat-trick in the second half, with Alphonso Davies adding insult to injury with a goal deflected off a missed Kaye penalty.
The 11-goal total bests an 8-0 Concacaf Nations League win over the US Virgin Islands in 2018 and leaves the side top of their qualifying group with two wins and a staggering +15 goal differential following a win over Bermuda.
As you could imagine, Canadian soccer Twitter was a fun place to be Monday.
Here’s how Canadian soccer reacted to the record-setting match.
