Teams: Zhetysu Taldykorgan
I was reading about this interesting match
Canada have only qualified for the World Cup once in their history, in 1986. They were drawn in a group alongside France - featuring the famed "magic square" of Platini, Giresse, Tigana and Fernandez - and also Hungary and the Soviets.
I didn't see any of this as at the time I was a baby and in any case it would be a while before I'd develop any interest towards the sport.
Still, I was wondering - I read about Canada's first ever match at the WC and reportedly they were only 10 minutes away from denying France victory before their goalkeeper misjudged a cross, allowing Papin to score in the 80th minute or so. It finished 1-0.
Canada are football minnows, pretty amazing effort against such a great team.
Did anyone see this game or else remember it? lol
