They have one group stage game remaining, against Germany, who are ranked 11th in the world.
The top four teams in each group will then advance to the playoffs. Canada has already secured a place in the playoffs. The best the country has ever done in that tournament was its 11th, way back in 1982, so hopes of improving on that result must have been met.
