Canada's forays against Honduras are fresh in the memory, as Les Rouges defeated Los Catrachos 2-0 on January 27, 2022 in Concacaf World Cup Qualifying, while also picking up a 1-1 draw last September.
Since Canada has qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, we're not even going to bother dredging up memories of 2012 anymore, either.
