    Canada has officially cracked the top 50 in the FIFA world rankings after climbing three places to No. 48. Team Canada started the year ranked No. 72 but has been on a steady rise this 2021 season. Their record so far is 11-2-4 being led by John Herdman and hope to make the final round of the World Cup qualifying in CONCACAF. 

    Canada’s 2 losses come from the U.S. and Mexico at the gold cup. So far the Canadian men have outscored their opponents 52-10 this year. Canada’s World Cup qualifying ties were against Mexico and Jamaica. Team Canada is ranked fourth in CONCACAF behind No. 9 Mexico, No. 13 U.S., and No. 45 Costa Rica.

    Being ranked in the top 50 is very beneficial, especially for players looking to sign a contract in the United Kingdom. The U.K. has a point-based system for work permits and being in the top 50 will help players get a visa. Canada’s best-ever ranking was No.40 back in December 1996.
