- Chris Richards and Miles Robinson pair in central defense for the second time tonight. They first partnered in the 2-1 qualifying win against Costa Rica on Oct. 13, 2021 in Columbus.
- Two players in the lineup have previously scored against Canada. Gyasi Zardes bagged a brace against Les Rouges in the 4-1 Concacaf Nations League group stage win on Nov. 15, 2019, in Orlando and Brenden Aaronson scored the opening goal in the 1-1 draw against Canada on Sept. 5, 2021 in Nashville.
- Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams continue as the only USMNT players to appear in all 10 World Cup Qualifying matches this cycle.
- Tyler Adams captains the USMNT for the seventh time today. The team is 4-0-2 in matches where Adams wears the armband.
- Adams and substitute defender DeAndre Yedlin are each on caution watch for this match. Should either player pick up a yellow card, they would be suspended for Wednesday’s match against Honduras.
- Adams, Weston McKennie and Yunus Musah partner together in midfield for the fifth time during World Cup Qualifying.

- Canada holds the advantage in World Cup qualifying as the U.S. trails 4-6-4 in the series. Les Rouges hold a 4-1-1 advantage in qualifiers played on Canadian soil. The lone U.S. win came in the last qualifier in Canada, a 3-0 victory on Nov. 7, 1997 in Burnaby, British Columbia that clinched qualification for the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
- Cesar Ramos of Mexico is the center referee for today’s match. The USMNT is 3-2-2 in matches officiated by Ramos, who has officiated two U.S. games in the last 12 months: the 1-0 Gold Cup quarterfinal win against Jamaica on July 25, 2021 in Arlington, Texas and the 1-0 World Cup qualifying defeat at Panama on Oct. 10, 2021 in Panama City.
