Canada must face Olympic reality
Well, what did you expect? The cream naturally rose to the top and we probably didn’t need a qualifying tournament to confirm what we already knew.
The United States and Canada are going to the London Olympics. Canada did exactly what was expected of it in Vancouver. No more, no less.
Head coach John Herdman’s team was always tipped to clinch one of the two CONCACAF qualifying berths, and accompany the American juggernaut across the Atlantic.
By all means enjoy the moment. Canada got the job done and the players are to be congratulated.
