    The third round of qualification for the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia gets underway on Friday @ 4:30PM Pacific as we host Belize (return match in Belize is on September 8th)

    No TV apparently (how sad is that!) but the CSA is streaming the game LIVE on their website:

    Home | Canada Soccer

    In 2004, we beat Belize 4-0 in both games. That was with a much more experienced squad though!

    Let's get some predictions going...

    I'll go with 3-0 Canada for Friday.

    What's your prediction? @DJones @Mike Meade @easoccer @PSC

    If you get TLNtv it's supposed to be on a 7:30pm Eastern.

    "BROADCAST UPDATE: in addition to our stream onHome | Canada Soccer Friday's #canMNT v Belize match will be live on @TLNTV 7:30pm ET"


    As for the predicition. I'm going to go with 2-1 Canada.

    I try :)

    OK, so away leg is set for tomorrow 6:00PM Pacific.

    I'll go with a 2-0 Canada prediction in this one though nil-nil I could see too (which would not be a great sign for Canada if they expect to make some noise in the next round).

    Cheers,

    Regs.

    Nice to see them cap Adekugbe. Anyone actually think we can beat any of the teams in our group?

    Nope. And I'm an optimist. :)

    Honduras has dropped since they spanked us last go round, but they'll be looking to take points off Canada for sure. El Salvador can be beaten. We'll need to bunker down and play ugly defence. I have little or no confidence in our ability to nick a goal in the limited opportunities we're likely to get. I don't see Larin and Akindele getting the service from Ricketts / Farran / Osorio.

    It will be a hard road...

    Every team in our group is what I would term "struggling"... including us :(

    As much as the team defense has been touted this calendar year, I find them to be weak on the ball and somewhat 'immature' in their decision making.

    We must win all our home dates because I don't see this team surviving any away dates in the group :(

    Home date announcement scheduled for today in a couple of hours (1PM Pacific I think) with strong rumours that Vancouver will host one of them in November.

    Would love to get out and support our MNT, it's been too long here in these parts!

    Yup, they're here in November and tickets go on sale Friday... funny thing, they're saying they want to make sure the roof is open. If they really really wanted weather to be a factor why didn't they put it in like Edmonton or something?
