Canada defeat Jamaica 4-0 to reach their first men’s FIFA World Cup since 1986.

Conquest in Toronto means Canada are solid of finishing in one of the top 3 places in the final stage of CONCACAF qualifying.

Canada’s last World Cup feature was at Mexico in 1986, where they concluded at the bottom of their group without scoring.

Cyle Larin and Tajon Buchanan put Canada 2-0 with a lead at half-time prior Junior Hoilett and an Adrian Mariappa own goal booked the win with 4-0.

It led to jolly celebrations from the crowd at BMO Field as Canada secured World Cup qualification for the second time.

The USA, Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama are all in dispute for the final two automatic CONCACAF qualification spots.

The fourth-placed country in the eight-team table gets a play-off versus the winner of Wednesday’s final of Oceania qualifying which is between the Solomon Islands and New Zealand.
