Hungary 1-0 Canada

From the CBC:

The Canadian men's national soccer team suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Hungary Wednesday in an exhibition match in Szekesfehervar.

Tamas Priskin, who plays in the English Premiership for Watford, capitalized on some slopping defending and scored in the 36th minute on a header from a free kick to lift the Hungarians to the home victory.

Canada dominated proceedings on the muddy field in the second half, but failed to convert several scoring chances. Forward Tomasz Radzinski, who also plays in the Premiership with Fulham, should have levelled the score in the 57th minute, but he fired his shot over an open net.

Canada last played Hungary in the 1986 World Cup at Mexico, losing 2-0.

Canada was without three of its top stars because of injuries — midfielder Dwayne De Rosario (foot) and defenders Kevin McKenna (flu) and Adrian Serioux (knee).

The rash of injuries forced interim coach Stephen Hart to give 22-year-old midfielder Issey Nakajima-Farran his first call-up to the national team.
