Video Vault: Canada's maiden World Cup

Mexico 1986 will always be fondly remembered by Canadian football fans. To date, it's the first and only time the Canucks have reached the FIFA World Cup™.

Though they bowed out at the group stage without a point or goal to their name, it was nonetheless an historic campaign for the Canucks at their maiden global finals. Former defender Bob Lenarduzzi recalls sealing qualification against Honduras on home soil and their first-ever World Cup test, against footballing giants France in Leon.
