Yes WeCAN, Can We?

“Anything is Possible”!
 
That’s what Canada men’s soccer coach John Herdman believed in ahead of managing the team in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
 
He still pinches himself and hopes his journey can show others that anything is possible.
 

Herdman credits the togetherness and belief within the group for having a next man up mentality.

“I think it’s our X-factor in this World Cup,” Herdman said. “I made a conscious decision in the selection – there were over 40 players I could’ve chosen – I made it clear that those 26 had to be brothers.
