El Salvador probably too strong for Canada at the moment. Perhaps they want to play Nicaragua or Belize instead.

They should imitate their hockey's colleagues...
I took a look at some highlights of the Olympic final, and the Italian commentator said that the hockey movement in Canada is so strong that if they had fielded three different teams, they would have occupied the first three places of the podium!

I upload some more pictures about the historical match Canada-Honduras from September 14, 1985.
Thanks to this success, Canada conquered the 1985 CONCACAF Championship (the first continental triumph in their history) and achieved the qualification for the 1986 World Cup.
Note that, in the starting line-up, 6 players out of 11 weren't born in Canada:

Tino Lettieri (Italy)
Carl Valentine (England)
Randy Samuel (Trinidad & Tobago)
Igor Vrablic (Czechoslovakia)
David Norman (Scotland)
Paul James (Wales)

Pictures are taken from SuperGol number 23 from December 1985 and from Radiocorriere TV number 20 from 1986.

Albeit from a penalty, Canada finally ended a 14-month goal drought with a 1-1 draw in Austria against Bulgaria yesterday.

Probably a lot to do with choice of opponent as well as their shooting deficiencies. They could have just picked a really rubbish opponent (Mauritania aren't really rubbish, just rubbish), but they played good European teams, Australia, Costa Rica. Still, they should have scored in 2 matches against a team like Mauritania.

Ah, but soon, their much-awaited rich vein of form before November will kick in (i.e. they will beat Jamaica 1-0 in September), allowing them to annihilate Panama (and possibly all-comers thenceforth).

Even if quality is quite bad, the following pictures are both rare and interesting. They show the moment when captain Bruce Wilson receives the Gabriel Kafaty trophy, after winning the 1985 Concacaf Championship. That trophy represents the first continental success fot the Canadian soccer.
The source is the following video.

Couldn't they have detached the trophy from its mounting? It looks like one of those Acme 20-tonne weights which Wile E. Coyote uses to try to crush the roadrunner. Yet inevitably, he only crushes himself, oh the irony, and what a metaphor for life itself.
