Canada defeated Honduras 2-0 in San Pedro Sula to mark themselves atop the Confederation of North, Central America, and Caribbean Association Football posts, one point forward of the United States, who they match up against on Sunday in Hamilton.
The leading three teams of the division automatically qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup being played in Qatar in November. Qualifying matches finish in March.
In late October, Penney returned a bit of history to the club: the first match ball utilized in the 1985 qualifying match against Honduras, played at King George V Park in the east end of St. John’s.
