Canada still not lost in the octagonal

Canada remains unbeaten in the eighth of the Concacaf qualifying rounds for the Qatar 2022 World Cup by drawing 0-0 with Jamaica in Kingston, leaving the North American country fourth with 7 points.

Jamaica is bottom with only 2 points in five games, behind Honduras (seventh), El Salvador (sixth) and Costa Rica (fifth). Ahead of Canada are Mexico, the United States and Panama.

The top three finishers have a guaranteed place for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

The fourth team, currently Canada, will have one more chance to reach the World Cup in a play-off.

The draw against Jamaica is the fourth for Canada, which on September 8 achieved its only victory in the octagonal so far by defeating El Salvador 3-0 in Toronto.

Canada had tied until today with Honduras (1-1), the United States (1-1) and Mexico (1-1).

In Kingston, neither the Jamaicans nor the Canadians were able to generate good, or abundant, chances to open the scoring.

Canada’s best chance came in the 60th minute when Liam Miller, with all the goal at his disposal and without a mark, put the ball in the only place where Jamaica goalkeeper Andre Blake was.

As the Canadian team got ready to celebrate the goal, Blake cleared the Canadian’s shot with his hands, sending the ball over the crossbar to Miller’s despair.

Blake’s performance denied Canada a victory that boosted the Americans to posts that guarantee a job in Qatar.
