Proud to say Canada moved to top of CONCACAF qualifying after beating Costa Rica and Mexico this week. After decades of dealing with farcical pitches, opposing fans lighting fireworks overnight outside of hotels and throwing bags of piss, and generally getting CONCACAF'd (it's a verb), we returned the favour by having them play in Edmonton of all places (the only time that northern snowscape has been used for this round of qualifying), where we were able to pack in over 45k per match, and see 20cm of snow fall with temperatures feeling like -15C.
Well done. Hope you qualify. I've got 3rd cousins in Canada so I'll be supporting them if they qualify! And Scotland as well if they do it, I'm an eighth Scottish. Finland are out though :(
12.5% Scottish. You’ll need to explain, we might be Clan linked 🤣

50% Scottish, 50% northern Irish.

Born in Scotland. Mum is Scottish. Dad is English. Moved away when I was 18 months old and been back for the occasional holiday and wedding.

I failed GCSE maths 5 times but that makes me 82% Scottish.

No clan as one of my ancestors became a f***ing Quaker and got us kicked out. Only thing that ever did for me was get a discount at a boarding school.

All due respect to Ukraine and Austria, but could be quite a potential showdown final between Wales and Scotland.
I’m sure we’ve many more sheep than them so pretty confident for Scotland all told

Ffs really chaps, come on……
Northumberland’s more Scottish than some other parts of Scotland. They say a Geordie is just a Scotsman but with his heid bashed in.
Great affinity there
