The Brampton, Ontario, native Cyle Larin scored two goals to draw level with De Rosario as the top Canadian men’s scorer. It also helped solidify the win as the game ended in a 2-1 Team Canada victory over Mexico. Now the Canadians sit at the top of their CONCACAF World Cup group.
Despite his performance, Larin was so sick he couldn’t eat before Canada’s matches against Costa Rica and Mexico. There are eight remaining teams in the CONCACAF, and each team has played their eighth of 14- game schedule in the Octagon.

The top three teams at the end of the 14-games will qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The fourth-place team gets a chance to qualify through an intercontinental playoff. Larin spoke after the match saying “I’m happy to tie the record and hopefully beat it, but I wouldn’t be able to do it without my teammates,”
