WHAT HAPPENED?

Jesse Marsch Canada 2024

The CanMNT, with American coach Jesse Marsch at the helm, have surprised many when making their way to the last four of a major international competition on U.S. soil. They are now one game away from competing for the ultimate prize.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

They do, however, face the toughest of tests in order to reach the final – with eight-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi and reigning champions Argentina standing in their way. Anything is possible, though, and those in Canada are daring to dream.

THE GOSSIP

Drake, as a Toronto native, forms part of that pack. He is throwing his support, and considerable funding, behind the Canadian cause – despite already witnessing a 2-0 defeat to the Albiceleste in the opening game of the 2024 Copa event. He has a six-figure sum riding on Marsch’s men making the final, with the Grammy Award-winning star joking that things “could get Messi”.

WHAT NEXT?

‘One Dance’ rapper Drake stands to pocket $2.8 million if Canada can spring an upset against Argentina. He will be watching on when an eagerly-anticipated contest plays out in New Jersey, with the Canucks already guaranteed a spot in the third-place play-off at the very least.
