TEAM Canada SEASON(S) 2004

I remember back in the 1980s that Canada went to the World Cup. The memory of the normally lethal Jean-Pierre Papin missing an empty net from a range of 4 centimetres against the Canadians in 1986. Canada sadly have been almost unheard of since beyond the odd decent run in the Gold Cup. Sad that such a great shirt as this is so rarely seen. I always thought it surprising how little impact on  football Canada has had especially given the country's close traditional links back to Europe but I suppose a combination of long winters and the dominance of ice hockey keep football in the shadows in the frozen north.
