This Just In! CanMNT players strike cancelling Panama friendly match


The Canadian men's national team did not play their rescheduled friendly match in Vancouver on Sunday against Panama after the CanMNT players went on strike in a dispute with Canada Soccer over compensation and the allocation of World Cup qualification prize money. The strong stance against the federation left Brendan Dunlop and James Sharman with plenty to talk about with former Canadian men's national team players Craig Forrest and Jimmy Brennan, as we try to answer the question all Canadian soccer fans are asking, how did it get to this point? Producers Dan Wong and Jeff Cole ensured you got a slice of Panama on the night you were expecting to see Canada play Panama at BC Place.   On the pitch, Canadian Premier League side Forge FC put on a spirited performance against Toronto FC Saturday night at Tim Horton's Field in Hamilton, losing to the MLS giants in a penalty kick shootout in the 2020 Canadian Championship Final. Jimmy and the crew highlight what a special night and landmark moment it was for the CPL and Canadian soccer as a whole
