Canada coach believes they are 'only getting started'

Canada is experiencing their first World Cup appearance since Mexico 86.

After returning to the World Cup and ending the 36 years of waiting,


coach John Herdman claimed that everything had just begun.

Herdman has previously coached the Canada women's team and has a very good knowledge of Canadian football. Yesterday, they defeated


4-0 in Toronto and qualified for the World Cup in Qatar. After the game, Herdman claimed that his team's promotion to the World Cup would be the beginning of great events.

"I still can't believe it. I've been preaching this belief, but when it finally happens I'm speechless.

"Canadians... we've won Champions League finals, we've got a kid [Alphonso Davies] playing in Bayern Munich, and we've got Canadians playing at all levels in Europe, and we've got Canadians going to a World Cup.

"We're a football country, that's all we ever wanted. We wanted that respect. We wanted people to believe we were a football country, and we've proved it.

"We're coming, we're only getting started here. What a privilege it has been as a coach. I'm proud for all of these people here."

"It's a dream come true. We all dreamed of this as little kids and as a Canadian that was impossible.

"And today the impossible happened. It's an incredible feeling."
