Canada has only played in two World Cups and has never earned a point at this tournament, but they reached the knockout stages in their debut Copa America. Not bad.

Venezuela has never reached a World Cup and has only been eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Copa America once (2011).

But they have been better than ever in the last two decades and have every chance of reaching the semi-finals, where they will probably face Argentina.

Is it possible to reach the final? Certainly. Their only defeats last year were against Colombia and Italy. Not bad.

News and focus on the Venezuelan team

Eduard Bello and Salomon Rondon have been around for a while and are feeling good after scoring two goals each in the group stage. Venezuela beat Ecuador 2-1, Mexico 1-0 and Jamaica 3-0. Many would have guessed they would exit the Copa America in the group stage. Instead, they are one of three perfect teams. The mood is good.

News about Team Canada, Focus

Canada didn't mind being knocked out of this group, but they're here despite losing their opening game 2-0 to Argentina. Marsch's men found a way to defend and gave Peru and Chile no chance, but still managed just one goal. They'll need a lot more effort from Jonathan David and Alphonso Davies to earn a revenge match against Argentina (assuming the reigning champions beat Ecuador).

Prediction Venezuela vs. Canada

Let’s hope for entertainment. We should get it — Venezuela 2:1 Canada.
