Canada drops out of the Hex... so what’s next?

To say Canada’s 4-1 defeat at the hands of the Americans two weeks ago was disappointing would be a massive understatement.

Of more importance than any emotional effects associated with the loss are the ensuing hurdles Canada will now have to clear to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Thanks to an El Salvador win paired with the Canadian defeat, the Central American side have pushed 15 points past Canada in the latest FIFA world rankings, taking over the sixth and final Concacaf “Hex” position in the process.

With Canada eliminated from the Concacaf Nations League by virtue of a superior American goal difference, the opportunities for securing a spot in the Hex are scarce.
