The Canada men’s national soccer team won the CONCACAF Championship in 1985 – one of their most significant win. This great victory qualified them for the 1986 FIFA World Cup. The 1985 CONCACAF Championship, the ninth edition of the Championship, had a total of 18 teams participating in the competition. This triumph at the 1985 CONCACAF championship can be said to be one of the most significant achievements of Canada’s men’s national soccer team.
Canada’s men’s national soccer team has indeed come a long way since it was founded in the late 1800s. It boasts an inspiring history of achievements that is a testament to how much the sport of soccer has grown in Canada in the last century.
One of these achievements was in the summer of 1904 when the men’s national soccer team won a gold medal at the Olympics. During this competition of the Summer Olympics of 1904, only three club teams competed, and the competition was a certified tournament by the IOC and not by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).
Also worth noting is that in the year of 1924, the Canada men’s soccer team went on a tour in Australia, and during this time, they participated in some soccer friendlies against the Australian team. On June 7, 1924, the Canada men’s national team in Brisbane, Queensland overpowered the Australian national team by a 3-2 score.
More recently, during the 1967 Pan American Games, they managed to finish fourth in Winnipeg. In their next participation in the Pan American Games in Cali, they managed to come second in their group ranking.
In 1975, the Canada men’s soccer team again participated in the Pan American Games and later took part in the Summer Olympics the year after. The national team qualified as runners-up during the 1977 CONCACAF Championship after beating the USA.
These are just some of the achievements of this team. Going by their past achievements, the Canada men’s soccer team will, at some point in the future, be named among the top men’s soccer teams in the world.
