Singapore

Describe your team, and what should we expect from your team during WFC 2022?

After a disappointing WFC2020 spell, the team is ready to bounce back in 2022. Lessons learnt during the WFC2020 proved helpful in showing what areas can be improved for the team. The team intends to show that we are still a force to be reckoned with even though we do not have players playing in the top leagues in Europe.

Canada returns to the Men’s World Championships after falling to Poland in penalty shots in the 11th place game in Finland. They qualified for this event by beating the USA in Texas in April with a win and a tie. They also gained great experience playing against the top teams at the World Games in Alabama this summer. The coaching staff returns along with a veteran squad. Expect the team to play a traditional Canadian style of finesse and skill, hard on the ball and lots of heart.
