Canada is still ranked 87th in the world, and are behind nations such as Malawi, Gabon and Sierra Leone.
But Friday night in the small Caribbean country of St. Lucia, there was some reason to celebrate. Canada defeated St. Lucia 7-0 in World Cup qualifying.
It was the most goals Canada has ever scored in an international soccer game in its history.
Canada, which improves to 3-0 in the first stage of qualifying got a hat trick from Simeon Jackson of Mississauga, Ontario, and two goals each from Olivier Occean of Brossard, Quebec and Iain Hume of Brampton, Ontario.
The loss officially eliminates St. Lucia from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Canada is four points up on St. Kitts and Nevis, who tied Puerto Rico 1-1. Canada, still needs to play St. Kitts and Nevis (one win, two draws) twice and Puerto Rico (Tuesday in Toronto) once. The winner of the four team tournament will advance to the third round of qualifying.
