Canada's Superb Reaction To Cancelled World Cup Game As Players Help With Recovery

After their World Cup Pool B match against Namibia was cancelled, Canada decided to assist with rescue work in Japan.

Torrential rain and tornado-like winds continue to wreak havoc across the country. 19 people are dead and half a million homes in central and eastern Japan are without power due to Typhoon Hagibis.

World Cup Organisers made the decision to cancel Canada's final game after conditions continued to deteriorate. They said there had been "landslides and flooding" in the vicinity of the Kamaishi stadium.

In response, Canada went out to assist with recovery efforts and help with roadwork.
