      Canadian soccer fans are rejoicing across the country. That's because the Canadian men's team has qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 36 years.

      It came in a 4-0 victory over Jamaica at BMO Field in Toronto.

      It means that Canada will be at the big show in Qatar later this year.

      Cyle Larin opened the scoring at 13 minutes into the game after a bit of nifty passing from the Canadian squad.

      Then at the 43-minute mark, Tajon Buchanan scored Canada's second goal, which he followed up with a celebratory cartwheel and back flip.

      Junior Hoilett's goal in the 83rd into put the game away for Canada, sending the fans into ecstasy. Ten minutes later, Jamaican player Adrian Mariappa touched the ball as his goalie was trying to pick it up, making the final score 4-0.
