  • Canada has already been eliminated from the World Cup Finals
  • Sportsbook price Canada at +250 to get first ever win at finals
  • Jonathon David is yet to score but +275 to get a goal at any time in this game according to betting odds.
  • Alphonso Davies goes down in History as first ever Canadian to score a Men's World Cup goal for Canada

Before the Croatia game I said it was very much what could have been having given Belgium the fright of their lives in the first half only to succumb to the superior skills of the number 2 ranked team in the world.

And then, against Croatia, Alphonso Davies gave Canada the lead and hope, sportsbooks were rubbing their hands at the possibility of an upset and a first 3 points at a world cup for Canada, only for Croatia to cruelly crush that by returning four goals of their own. 

And so it was that Canada, before the final game against Morocco is played, could already book a flight home with the last game in Group F being nothing more than a playing for pride exercise. Although so as to have no Illusion here, a win for Morocco would see them guaranteed a place in the round of 16.

After defeat but a very encouraging performance against Belgium, fans will be keen to see the Maple Leafs score their first-ever goal in the finals with Jonathon David priced at +275 to score at anytime and write his name into the Candian Soccer history books

Jonathon David still yet to Score

Aphonso Davies will go down in history as the first Canadian to score a goal at the World Cup final after scoring the goal that took the maple leaves into the lead against Croatia last weekend, although we know what happened next. He was +333 to score at any time in that game and +850 to be the first in the game, a repeat would go down well in this dead rubber for Canada

How do the Canadian Team Shape Up in The Group?

The total value of the Canadian World Cup squad according to transfermrkt amounts to a not inconsiderable 187 million Euros. However, it is the least expensive squad in the group with Morrocco worth a further 53 million, Croatia another 189 million, and Belgium's €563,000,000 squad costing 375 million more than that of Canada.

Value Value
Canada 187,300,000€ Belgium 563,200,000€ Difference 375,900,000€
Canada 187,300,000€ Morocco 241,100,000€ Difference 53,800,000€
Canada 187,300,000€ Croatia 377,000,000€ Difference 189,700,000€

Therefore Morocco are the team most aligned in terms of value with Canada in Group F and thus should be the easiest opponent they have met yet. 

Although it should be considered that Alphonso Davies is valued higher at a huge €70m and is 37.3% of the Candian Squad value himself - Much will be expected of the 22-year-old pairing of Davies and David, who combined are worth more than the other 24 players in the squad.

Canadian stars Alphonso Davies (€70m) and Jonathon David (€45m) have a combined market value of more than the other 24 players in the Canadian squad combined - Much will be resting on the shoulders of the 22 year old pair, in a squad with an average age of just about 27 years.
