Where to watch Canada in the World Cup

Where to watch the most important match of the Fifa World Cup 2022 – so far. Tomorrow, at 11:00 pm, the Canada men’s soccer team face 12th ranked Croatia. Support team Canada at your favourite local haunt (if you're working from home, who's going to know?), some of which will be open from 7:00 am during the tournament.

Oh, and for bonus points at the bar, you can casually mention that Canada’s Geordie coach John Herdman (‘Geordie’ being a nickname for people born in the Northeastern region of England) has never played professional football. That didn’t stop him from leading national women’s teams in New Zealand and Canada, the latter of which won a bronze at both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics under his watch.
