'O Canada' Football

With so much football to keep us occupied, the average fan doesn't tend to look too far ahead, and so it may have escaped your attention that Canada will be joint hosts of the 2026 FIFA World Cup, alongside their North American Football Union (NAFU) neighbours Mexico and the United States. Les Rouges are not historically renowned for their footballing prowess, having only previously qualified for a solitary World Cup, in 1986, but, this may be about to change thanks to the influence of a man from County Durham. John Herdman is the British manager of the men's Canadian national team, being in post since 2018, and he secured his role after spending the preceding 7 years in charge of the Canadian women's team. From 2011 until 2018, Herdman honed a legacy that would include securing the 1st, and so far only, gold medal for Canada at the Pan American Games (in 2011). However, it is within the Olympic Games that Herdman really left a lasting impression. Women's football
