“Dreams are all in this stadium,” Hutchinson said. “We’re here now. Let’s go out and make the most of it. Let’s put our country on the map. Let’s all make each other proud, make our families proud, make everyone behind us proud.

“We’ve worked so hard for this position here. So let’s take it tomorrow. Let’s start flying. Let’s fly for each one. Okay? Let’s do it guys. Tomorrow.”

Hutchinson then turns the sword onto the field to cheer on his teammates, with injured goalkeeper Maxime Cripeau watching from afar via phone.

Then the players join in singing “Brothers” in threes.

In March, after the Canadians qualified for Qatar with a 4-0 win over Jamaica in Toronto, coach John Herdman explained that the sword “is what symbolizes the new Canada.”

I told these guys that we always have a shield. But we made a sword and it is called a swordNahil schedule,‘ which is ‘fear nothing’. And this is the new Canada. This is the flag we want to play with. And it goes into every stadium to symbolize that we will own their land and be the new Canada.

That tradition was thrown out of whack during the tour to Central America with Costa Rica beating Jamaica in the qualifiers.

La NacionA Costa Rican newspaper reported that customs officials seized the sword upon arrival of the Canadian team under charter “according to the regulations that govern the type of weapons entering our country.”

The newspaper published a photo of the sword, a long two-handed weapon in a black case with a red interior. On the hand are the words Qatar 2022.

Without a goal, the Canadians saw their 17-game unbeaten streak end in CONCACAF qualifying with a 1-0 loss to Costa Rica. Canada played with 10 men for two-thirds of the game after midfielder Marc-Anthony Kaye was sent off for a second yellow card.

But there was a happy ending.

“We got it. We got it back. It was on that field (at BMO Field),” a jubilant Herdman said of the streak after the win over Jamaica.

This group had previously kept the existence of the sword with them.
