Canada upends Suriname as they advance to next stage of World Cup Qualifiers

Midfielder Tajon Buchanan and Team Canada returned to World Cup Qualifying action as they took on Suriname. Canada came into Tuesday’s matchup on the heels of a 7-0 victory on Saturday against Cuba while Suriname came into the match after picking up a 6-0 win over Bermuda on Friday.

A lot was at stake for both sides entering the match as both Group B members were dead even in points. The only thing separating the two sides was goal differential as Canada entered with a plus 22-goal differential while Suriname entered with a plus 15-goal differential.

After making his National Team debut during Canada’s victory over Aruba and assisting on two of Canada’s seven goals, Revolution midfielder Tajon Buchanan would start Tuesday’s match on the bench.
