world cup match – The Canadian footballers have Sunday night a few hours before the scheduled kick-off the friendly game against Panama canceled. The players are dissatisfied with the rewards of the Football Association and therefore decided to go on strike.
The game against Panama was a friendly match towards the World Cup ( “World Cup” ). Canada managed to qualify for the first time in 36 years. But the rewards lag behind the performance, according to the players, who previously also refused to train.
In a statement, the national team said that they have rejected the new contract terms. They believe that the proposal took too long and demand, among other things, 40 percent of the prize money at the World Cup and more transparency. “world cup match”
“We hope that Canada Soccer will take decisive steps to work with our team so that we can be back on the field for our game on June 9,” the players write, who also apologize to the Canadian and Panamanian fans. Later this week, Curaçao will be the opponent.

Canadian federation ‘very disappointed’
Nick Bontis, the president of the Canadian federation, said at a press conference that he was “very disappointed” with the players’ decision. They had received a fair offer, he claimed.
“Canada Soccer has worked with the players in good faith to take a step forward that is fair to everyone. We remain available to continue talking and working towards our common goal: to perform well at the World Cup.”
Canada only participated in the World Cup in 1986 and then fell in the group stage. In Qatar, the team is divided into a pool with Belgium, Croatia and Morocco.
