How to watch Azerbaijan vs Canada: Start Time, TV Schedule, and Live Stream

Will Karl Ouimette play his first game since THAT kick?

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

New York Red Bulls fans anxious for a first on-field sighting of Karl Ouimette - last seen falling victim to THAT kick - may get the chance when his national team takes on Azerbaijan in the modest setting of Austrian town Rohrbach an der Lafnitz (population: roughly 1,000, says Wikipedia).

Both teams are in much the same boat: not involved in the big summer tournament kicking off in their respective regions (Copa America Centenario for the Canadians; Euro 2016 for the Azeris) and seeking to use the time to prepare for upcoming World Cup qualifiers in September.

For Canada, those qualifiers are particularly important. It is make-or-break time in CONCACAF's fourth round of World Cup qualifying, and the Canadians will need strong performances - and points - out of a trip to Honduras and a visit from El Salvador.

This match against Azerbaijan in a small Austrian town will not simulate the intensity of either of the big games ahead, but it does give Canada head coach Benito Floro the chance to continue to shape his tactics and his squad. Besiktas midfielder Atiba Hutchinson is the only notable absentee from a roster that might reasonably expect to called together again in September.
