To find out when the nation last made it to the World Cup, you have to go back to 1986, when Mexico hosted the tournament 36 years ago.

Despite being undefeated in qualifying, with five wins and three losses, Canada had a disappointing tournament and were eliminated in the group stage with three losses.

They will be looking to improve but face a tough task in their group against highly-rated Belgium and 2018 finalists Croatia and Morocco.

Canada will participate in a consecutive World Cup for the first time in its history, having already qualified for the 2026 tournament as co-hosts alongside the USA and Mexico.
