The Canadian national soccer team hasn't received much international recognition in recent history, but it has a history dating as far back as 1885. In fact, the first major success that the team had was during the 1904 Olympic Games in St. Louis when it captured a gold medal. However, there were only two competitors the Canadian team had to content with. Although the Canadian soccer team is yet to make its mark on the international stage, the sport of soccer has been gaining popularity in recent years.
After 1904, another notable moment where the Canadian national team captured international attention was in 1986, when it successfully qualified for the FIFA World Cup. While Canada did not win a single game and ended up placing dead last in its group, the team stunned France in a game where it conceded only one goal.
During the 2012 Olympic Games in London, soccer gained popularity in Canada as the women's national soccer team successfully took the bronze medal. Just as the women's team will be aiming to repeat its winning ways in the upcoming games in Rio de Janeiro, the men's team will be seeking another shot at the FIFA World Cup in 2018. In November 2015, midfielder and captain Julian De Guzman notched his 85th cap to set a new record in the history of the Canadian team. Simply put, Canadian soccer has plenty of action to look forward to.
