Why Canada must WIN 2023 Gold Cup | OneNation Ep. 6
The road to the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup begins this week on OneSoccer, as the Canadian men's national team returns to action for the first time since the 2022 FIFA World Cup, taking on Curacao (March 25) and Honduras (March 28 at BMO Field in Toronto) to round out their 2022 Concacaf Nations League campaign – the path to qualifying for the region's top tournament.
Should Canada take four points out of those two games, they'll book their spot at the 2023 Gold Cup this summer, and for former CanMNT veteran Jim Brennan, that summer dance isn't just another competitive environment for the team to enjoy – it's a chance to truly stamp their place in the Concacaf pecking order with silverware.
We're joined by the Footy Prime podcast pundit and Jordan Wilson's former coach at York United to preview these two upcoming match-ups, take a look through the Canada squad and its hopefuls on the fringe, and look ahead to this summer's Gold Cup affair on OneNation.
