The Canadian men’s national team made history Tuesday by qualifying for the final round of Concacaf World Cup qualifying for the first time since the 1998 World Cup cycle.
Coach John Herdman’s side dispatched Haiti 3-0 on the night, 4-0 on aggregate. Goals from Cyle Larin and Junior Hoilett sent Canadian hearts singing in the late stages and eased those anxious about Canada’s ability to close out the momentous occasion.
Proceedings were taken over, at least online, by Haitian goalkeeper Josue Duverger who conceded a heartbreaking, twice-misplayed own-goal that gave Les Rouges the lead and, of course, went viral online.
Here’s how Canadian soccer reacted to a wild night.
