They since made two other appearances in the Olympics, in 1976 and 1984. As the hosts in 1976, they did not make it out of the group stage. In 1984, they reached the quarterfinals, where they lost to Brazil.

The (interim) manager - Mauro Biello

Previous coach Jon Herdman stepped down to take the Toronto FC job as he wanted to try his hand at managing on the club level. His former assistant with Canada, Mauro Biello, was appointed to the interim head coach position.

The upcoming Nations League quarterfinal tie with Jamaica will be his first matches as interim coach as well as his first chance to stake his claim to remove the interim tag.
