Canada well placed to defeat Mexico

Mexico City, March 29 (IANS) Canada coach Benito Floro has said it is possible to defeat Mexico as part of the regional qualifying tournament for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“Football is a game and there is no impossible mission. It will be a great experience and we will seek to win the game,” Floro said on Monday, reports Xinhua news agency.

On Friday, Mexico defeated Canada 3-0 in the first leg. The return match will be held at Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium.

Canada has only one victory, one draw, one defeat and four points in Group A, while Mexico has a perfect record with three wins and nine points, two more than El Salvador and three more than Honduras.

The Tuesday match might give Mexico a ticket for the finals of CONCACAF tournament. But if Canada wins, the next two games of Group A will become more interesting.
