BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Canada’s World Cup qualifier against the Cayman Islands at the IMG Academy was postponed by a day until Monday.
“FIFA has been informed that the Cayman Islands Football Association was not able to submit the required COVID-19 testing information in time for today’s FIFA World Cup qualification match,” soccer’s governing body said in a statement.
The game was moved to the United States from the Cayman Islands because of coronavirus-caused travel restrictions.
Canada, seeking its first World Cup appearance since 1986, opened qualifying with a 5-1 win over Bermuda on Thursday in a match moved to Orlando from Canada because of COVID-19 restrictions. Canada is ranked 73rd in the world.
The No. 193 Caymans began last Wednesday with a 3-0 defeat at Suriname.
