The Canadian thread is practically dead and I figured we can use this in regard to comparison with us and our recent succcesses in the past 2 decades. 1) where is Canada currently at if you were comparing them to our stage of development (from the 90 WC til now)? 2) why can't they seem to foster talented homegrown players? is MLS an advantage or disadvantage? 3) Are all the quality Canadian players eligible for other nations and prefer playing for Wales or Bosnia or England rather than for canada? anyway to prevent this leakage of talent? do you see Canada making it to the 2018 WC or 2022? And thinking of Canadian footballers overseas the only one I can think of is Oliver Occean and he's mostly known for scoring goals in Norway and the 2/3 Bundesliga. Or the Guzman brothers. Though maybe Canada has finally caught a break with Cyle Larin.
