FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I'm shocked that they played that well against the #2 team in the world. I'm shocked they actually had more scoring chances than the #2 team in the world.

I'm not shocked that they still can't score in a World Cup.

This is one time where a moral victory is acceptable.

Canada played a great game.

They had 21 attempts vs just 9 for Belgium, but both teams had only three attempts on goal.
And Belgium was the only team to score.

One of the Swedish talking heads on tv said after the game that that's the difference between a good and a great team.
A great team doesn't need a lot of attempts, because they score on the ones they get.

Can definitely relate.
Sweden often plays really well against teams like Germany/France/Spain, then we make ONE mistake and they score.
It sucks.

I don't know when these games are on but I just saw the highlights.

Coach talked shit, team came out dressed in black and got their asses kicked 4-1.

Coach had no regrets.
