These are some "legendary" pictures for the Canadian soccer.
On 14-09-1985, Canada defeated Honduras 2-1, conquered the 1985 CONCACAF Championship and achieved the qualification for the 1986 World Cup.

Whereas, if we consider the population, one of the best performing territories is surely the Province of Alessandria, in northern Italy.
It has a population of only 414,000 inhabitants distributed in just 3,560 km2, nevertheless look how many champions it produced:

Gianni Rivera, European champion in 1968 and Golden Ball in 1969;
Pietro Rava, Olympic champion in 1936 and World champion in 1938;
Eraldo Monzeglio, World champion in 1934 and 1938;
Umberto Caligaris, World champion in 1934 (without playing);
Giovanni Ferrari, World champion in 1934 and 1938;
Carlo Tagnin, winner of two European Cups with Inter (he annulled Alfredo Di Stéfano in the 1964 European Cup final);
Elvio Banchero, Bronze medal in the 1928 Olympic Games;
Adolfo Baloncieri, Bronze medal in the 1928 Olympic Games.
Enzo Robotti, winner of a Cup Winners' Cup with Fiorentina;
Sergio Castelletti, winner of a Cup Winners' Cup with Fiorentina;
Riccardo Sogliano, winner of a Cup Winners' Cup with AC Milan.

to get back to the item: I hope CONCACAF will not give a wild card to Canada for the Gold cup next time.... Some teams deserve it more ...

Canada doesn't get a wild card, as such. North America gets 3 places at the Gold Cup (it just happens that now North America only has 3 countries after Bermuda joined the CFU).

I think what would be fair would be a distribution of places as follows:

North America - 2 (USA and Mexico)
UNCAF - 4 (Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama, El Salvador)
CFU - 4 (Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Guadeloupe, Haiti)

The remaining 2 places could be decided in a mini tournament (1 North America, 1 UNCAF and 1 CFU).

So, for example,
Canada, Guatemala, Martinique
The Top 2 would qualify for the Gold Cup.

This would necessitate a 5th place play-off in the Caribbean Cup and UNCAF Cup.

It would give Canada 2 competitive matches they wouldn't normally have.

2013 Canada scored a single goal in 11 games. In this vast country, it is obviously difficult to find a player who can score goals (it’s like to find ‘the needle in a haystack’…).

Well, Canadian NT deserves scorn and gloating … but - for those who like it, to derive conclusions from a few match results:

A selection of results of the U.S. NT
29/02/12 Italy 0-1 USA
26/05/12 USA 5-1 Scotland
03/06/12 Canada 0-0 USA (oh, USA didn’t win)
29/01/13 USA 0-0 Canada (… again)

02/06/13 USA 4-3 Germany

Italy, Scotland and Germany needed only one attempt to be defeated by a U.S. team, Canada had two attempts: as usual they failed …smiley: wink

I almost never expect Canada to perform well, and this is coming from someone who has watched them in 8 countries.  

I even saw them lose 3-0 in Strumica, Macedonia.  They managed to miss two penalties in that game.  

In a way, Canada is like the Northern Ireland of Europe ;)  Sometimes they both get a good result, but more often than not they are struggling against sides like Luxembourg etc....
