TeaOpportunities came one after the other. From distance and at close range. From corners, free kicks and open play.

From the stars to the supporting cast, everyone spread their wings on Monday night. Stéphane Eustaquio, Jonathan David, Tjon Buchanan, Alphonso Davies, Richie Laria, Junior Hoilett, Alistair Johnston and aging captain Atiba Hutchinson, three months away from his 40th birthday, demand Belgium’s creaking backline and their world-class goalkeeper. Either of them would have written themselves into history as Canada’s first goalscorer in the men’s World Cup.
The fast-paced attacking scrum that defined the Canadians’ buzzsaw tear through CONCAF qualifying – and their first men’s World Cup appearance in nearly four decades – produced no fewer than 10 shots in the first half-hour. Each successive effort sent packs of Canada’s traveling fans, already enthralled by the team’s first rendition of Drake’s Started From the Bottom and a rapturous rendition to Canada’s national anthem, into a deafening wall of sound.
Then, a minute after half-time, a dream turned to a nightmare. Michy Batshuayi ran on Toby Alderweireld’s inch-perfect ball from almost naught and clinically buried it in the far corner of the net, causing a constellation of white shirts to freeze in silence. It was Belgium’s first concrete chance of the game and, finally, what they needed to avoid three tempting points.
