There are viewing parties gathering across the country as Canada’s soccer team has a do or die match today at the World Cup in Qatar.
A loss for Canada would mean the Canadians can finish with no more than three points while Croatia ups its total to four, and no matter what happens in another between No. 2 Belgium and No. 22 Morocco, one of those teams will have at least four points.
With only two teams advancing out of the group, a loss today would render Canada’s final group game next Thursday with Morocco meaningless in terms of tournament progression.
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario approved licensed establishments to start serving at 7 a.m. during the tournament, which is being held to December. 18.
Normally drink service in Ontario isn’t allowed until 9 a.m.
