Ottawa/IBNS: Canada won the match 2-0 against Honduras during a qualifying soccer game for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in San Pedro Sula last night keeping the team on track to qualify for the World Cup since 1986.

22-year-old Jonathan David from Ottawa was congratulated by teammates after scoring their side's second goal against Honduras.

The Canadian men put on what coach John Herdman reportedly called a "professional performance" in a 2-0 victory over Honduras in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying play Thursday.

The win kept Canada (5-0-4, 19 points) atop the eight-team qualifying standings. The U.S. won second place with 5-1-3, 18 points, and the third place went to Mexico having scored 5-2-2, 17 points.

The 40th-ranked Canadians would be facing the Americans on Sunday at Hamilton's Tim Hortons Field, and El Salvador next Wednesday.
