Canada will be Seeking Glory

After a disappointing World Cup run, Canada will be out with vengeance after a 23-year trophy drought.

Alphonso Davies will continue to lead the team after a solid campaign so far with Bayern, totaling a goal, two assists, 21 tackles, and 17 chances created in the last 10 matches.

Can Mexico Catch Up to the Pack?

He is most notable for delivering Atlas its first title since 1951, winning both the Apertura in 2021 and the Clausura in 2022. With a new head coach, Mexico could be a different team than last year, however fell to a tie with Jamaica during the Nations League group stage.

The good news for Mexico fans is that Chicharito could return to the team, Cocca confirmed. This would be excellent for the team that is in need for more help offensively. Henry Martin has been the main striker for El Tri and continues to keep good form this season with 13 goals and five assists in 15 matches with Club America.
