Even though he is currently focusing on preparations for the season with Montreal, which starts this weekend, Zachary Brault-Guillard has set a very specific goal: in the Canadian national team. Find your place.
“From the very beginning, he has qualified for the playoffs. Later, at the individual level, he had a good season and participated in as many games as possible. My defensive contribution is more decisive. Defensively, don’t pass me, don’t let free throws or anything like that. Don’t let me dribble, be resolute. Tactically speaking, there must be no compromise in my defensive returns and position. Be tough on that man. Why not score?”
“Then, why can’t I find the A series in Canada? Everything depends on my performance at the beginning of the season.”
The 22-year-old Braault-Guillard has worn the Maple Leafs main jersey four times, including three in the 2019 Gold Cup qualifiers, and has another duel this year.
The competition between 16 teams from North and Central America will be held this summer. Brat-Guillard hopes that he can once again show his performance on the international stage. He failed to work with young people under 23 to qualify Japan for the Olympic Games held in Tokyo last month. .
“Yes, it is indeed a big competition. After that, there will be the World Cup. Unfortunately, we are not eligible for the Olympics. Now, I must concentrate on the future and do my best to find my place as a licensee It’s up to me to perform on the field with CF Montreal at the beginning of the season.”
The preliminaries for the Gold Cup are scheduled to be held in July. Canada enters Group B with the United States, Martinique and the fourth qualified team.
