The rise of Canadian football
Canadian football is on the rise and many of the talents associated with the North American nation are having an impact on European football.
From players like Alphonso Davies at FC Bayern Munich to Jonathan David at French champions Lille.
In addition, Canada reached the Gold Cup semi-finals this summer. In the North American equivalent of the European Championship, Canada was eventually eliminated against the finalists Mexico.

In the final they were then beaten by the USA, who won their second big trophy of the year after beating the same opponents in the final of the Nations League.
However, Canada had to do without the aforementioned Davies and David, the former due to a serious injury. But the players who played with high pressure and achieved a great result are considered their first professional league, the CSL, is only a few years old.
The MLS includes a few Canadian teams like Montreal Impact, Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC, but youth development has seen a huge surge since the CSL was founded with thriving academies.
Corbeanu sign for Wednesday

Corbeanu played against Spurs in the Premier League under Nuno Espirito Santo but new manager Bruno Lage thinks Corbeanu is better off elsewhere this season.
This makes sense given the abundance of talent at the West Midlands Club that is currently blocking the Canadian’s path.
101 great goals spoke exclusively to Corbeanu and he said playing first-team football was a priority:
“My biggest ambition in the short term is to play football in the first team as soon as possible. Whether at Wolves or elsewhere, depending on the situation, that’s definitely the greatest. Assuming to do well where I am, wherever I am.
