The Canadian Men’s National Team are set to face Iran in a June 5 friendly ahead of their two Concacaf Nations League matches.
Iran’s visit marks the first of back-to-back international fixtures at the Vancouver Whitecaps’ BC Place stadium, as Canada then hosts Curacao for the opening match of the Concacaf tournament on June 9. The Canadian side will then close the June international window on the 13th when visiting Honduras for the Group C fixture.
It will be a busy summer for John Herdman’s side as Canada prepares for the World Cup, their first appearance in the international tournament since 1986. The team managed to qualify after a whirlwind Concacaf cycle that saw the underdogs top the table with 28 points from 14 games, topping Mexico and the United States.
Les Rouges have been drawn in Group F, alongside Belgium, Croatia, and Morocco. They are set to kick off on November 23 against Belgium.
Iran, on the other hand, will be featuring in their third consecutive World Cup, after successfully navigating the Asia qualification path. They stand in Group B, joining England, the United States, and the UEFA Path A winners (either Wales, Scotland, or Ukraine).
