All Time Greatest Canadian Football Players

All Time Greatest Canadian Football Players

Remember that when you think of a famous Canadian athlete, you probably think of a hockey or basketball player, as these are two of the most popular sports in Canada. However, Canada is home to many other famous athletes, including soccer players.

Despite the fact that you can barely recall their names, certain Canadian football players represent the pinnacle of the sport. Our duty is to assist you in recalling them, so continue to look for the greatest Canadian soccer players of all time.

Alphonso Davies

Despite the fact that Alphonso Davis is a young soccer player, he earned a spot on the list due to his outstanding performances for Bayern Munich and huge knowledge of how to play plinko. The left winger is almost as quick as that day's withdrawal from online gambling clubs, which helped him become an important member of the greatest German football club ever. Previously, Davies won the Bundesliga and Champions League with Bayern.

Craig Forrest

Fans of soccer don't typically favor goalkeepers, but this one is exceptional! Canada won the 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup because Craig Forrest saved two extra shots. Forrest, a former player for Chelsea, Ipswich Town, and West Ham, has joined Liverpool. Together, the team conceded only three goals during the Gold Cup competition, solidifying his status as one of the best soccer players in Canada.

Owen Hargreaves

The top situation on our list belongs to a British player! If you're wondering why, consider the fact that Owen Hargreaves was born in Calgary and holds Canadian citizenship. Hargreaves was one of the best midfielders in the middle of the 21st century, when Manchester United won the Premier League and the Champions League.

Scotty Arfield

Do you know that Scott Arfield played for Scotland's U21 national team? The current commander of the Canadian public group began his career overseas, but that did not prevent him from becoming the most recognizable face of Canadian football in the 2020s.

Randy Samuel

Since his assets are concealed by numerous hedges, nobody recalls Randy Samuel's delicate appearance and touch. We admire Samuel's fighting spirit and willingness to do whatever it takes to help Canada dominate a soccer match. The Trinidad-born defender wore the public group shirt on 82 occasions.

Junior Hoilett

Junior Hoilett is an additional dynamic player to make our top 10 list. The winger has amassed approximately 200 appearances in the English Premier League, primarily for Cardiff City, Queens Park Rangers, and Blackburn Rovers.

Julian De Guzman

Julian De Guzman is a Canadian soccer legend, as he played the most games for the national team (89). Additionally, fans recall him as the first Canadian to play in La Liga in Spain. De Guzman was one of the most impressive Deportivo La Coruna players.

Fernando Aguiar

Fernando Aguiar is another Canadian soccer legend, but with a twist: he also played for Portugal. Aguiar, who was born in 1972, holds dual citizenship. He was a ferocious defender in the midfield, which earned him appearances in multiple Canadian and Portuguese teams. Aguiar's most notable seasons with Benfica occurred between 2002 and 2004.

Patrice Bernier

Previous commander of the Canadian public group is Patrice Bernier. The midfielder played for Montreal Effect and several international clubs, including German Kaiserslautern, from 2000 to 2017. In 2017, he captained the public team at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Atiba Hutchinson

Atiba Hutchinson concludes our list of the best soccer players in Canada. He participated for PSV, Copenhagen, Besiktas, and other teams. Atiba has been awarded the Canadian Men's Player of the Year award for 2021, which is remarkable.
