Below is a link to a very interesting article, posted on http://www.tsn.ca, and written by Jason De Vos, former Canadian Men’s National Team member, professional soccer player in Canada, England and Scottland, former coach and Technical Director of the Oakville Soccer Club, and presently a soccer analyst for TSN. He is commenting on some of the problems with Canadian soccer and how they relate to Canada’s recent failure to qualify for the FIFA U20 Men’s World Cup.
The main point De Vos makes in this article is that Canada’s soccer problems stem from the bottom of the “pyramid of play” (poor youth development) rather than from the top (lack of a Canadian professional league). Supporters and/or followers of soccer in Canada at any level should be interested in hearing what he has to say:
