Canada are set to play Uruguay at the Tehelné pole on Tuesday in an international friendly.
Canada come into this game on the back of a 2-0 win over Felix Sanchez’s Qatar in their most recent game. First-half goals from Club Brugge forward Cyle Larin and Lille attacker Jonathan David secured the win for John Herdman’s Canada.
Uruguay, on the other hand, lost 1-0 to Carlos Queiroz’s Iran in their most recent fixture. A second-half goal from Porto striker Mehdi Taremi sealed the deal for Iran.
