DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Many Canadian soccer fans have been waiting for this moment their entire lives. Long an afterthought behind the hockey, Canada’s soccer team is back in the World Cup for the first time since 1986 and it opens with a daunting opponent: Belgium, a 2018 semifinalist and the second-ranked team in the world. Canada’s only prior trip to soccer’s showcase was a scoreless, three-loss performance 36 years ago. These Canadians are led by a new generation headed by Alphonso Davies, Jonathan David and Cyle Larin.
