Canada games: Nations League Quarterfinals

  • November 17 at Jamaica - 7 pm ET (OneSoccer in Canada; Paramount+ in United States) | Independence Park (Kingston, Jamaica)
  • November 21 vs. Jamaica - 7:30 pm ET (OneSoccer in Canada; Paramount+ in United States) | BMO Field (Toronto, Canada)

In addition to advancing to the Nations League Finals (a four-team tournament held at a centralized venue in March 2024), the aggregate winner of the home-and-away series will also guarantee their participation in next year's Copa América tournament – along with three other quarterfinal victors.

Les Rouges are favorites heading into the tie, thanks to their 10W-6L-7D record against Jamaica. Both sides last met in March 2022 during qualifiers for the Qatar World Cup, with Canada cruising to a 4-0 home win that clinched their return to the marquee global tournament after a 36-year absence.

Roster notes

Interim head coach Mauro Biello named 10 MLS players to his roster. Vancouver Whitecaps FC lead the way with four call-ups – followed by Toronto FC, LAFC, Minnesota United, CF Montréal, Inter Miami CF and the New England Revolution with one player apiece.

Of note is the return of Black & Gold goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau, back in Canada's squad just over a year after breaking his leg in MLS Cup 2022 and missing out on the trip to Qatar. The 29-year-old has made nine starts since returning from injury, including both Audi MLS Cup Playoffs wins over Vancouver that secured LAFC's spot in the Western Conference Semifinals.

Other high-profile names making their way back to the squad include Jonathan David, Alphonso Davies, Cyle Larin, Alistair Johnston and Ismaël Koné – all of whom missed the Concacaf Gold Cup squad over the summer as they prepared for the beginning of the 2023-24 seasons in Europe.
