Former Canada international Tosaint Ricketts claims ‘young and fearless’ Les Rouges could challenge Belgium at the World Cup because they ‘play at a high level in Europe’… but admits watching Eden Hazard gives ‘goosebumps’.
Recently retired Canadian striker Tosaint Ricketts has confidence in his country as they open their first World Cup group stage in 36 years.
Ricketts, who now works as an analyst for the Canadian TV channel TSN, was interviewed by Marco ahead of Les Rouges’ first game against a strong Belgian team.
In particular, Ricketts was asked what he thought of the skills of aging Belgian wonder Eden Hazard – and whether or not he would be able to overcome Canada.

Even with strong competition, in-form players like Tajon Buchanan should do well
“I see him now and I get goosebumps because I know what this guy can do when he goes down the left side and starts dribbling and dribbling and dribbling. If he cuts his right foot inside, anything can happen,” Ricketts told Spanish media.
Despite that fear, he had faith in this team – which looks a lot better than the teams of the past.
“Canada has strong players; They are young, confident and fearless, so they hope to be able to cope with Eden Hazard,” predicted Ricketts.
Ricketts believes Canadian star Alphonso Davies is “the fastest player in the world”.
“It’s been a long time, 36 years, since Canada hosted the World Cup. It took us many years to get back here but now we have a good group with players like Alphonso Davies, Tajon Buchanan and Stephen Eustaquio all playing at a high level and contributing to their teams in Europe.”
Davies in particular – a graduate of the Vancouver Whitecaps – drew praise and attention from Ricketts.
“Yes, he is special. See what he’s doing with Bayern. He is the fastest player in the world and the best left-back in the world, I think. He is a special talent and has a long career ahead of him,” added Ricketts.
