Canada and Ireland will battle it out on Sunday to seal a ticket for Olympics 2020. Ireland won against Canada last night and they will aim to deny Canada a victory in today’s header as well.

Shane O’Donoghue and Sean Murray scored teo goals each to take their team home and now Canada needs a victory in the next header to make way into 2020 Olympics. Johnston Gordon scored one goal for Canada while Keegan Pereira scored two goals for the side. However, their efforts couldn’t stop Ireland from getting the better of them as they won by 5-3.
