And they did it! 1-0 for Canada. The defence held out very well.

Canada is now in first place in the group!

Canada was solid, I have to be honest I expected us to blow it this game but I was pleasantly surprised, it should have been more than 1-0.Where was this during WCQ? 2 big wins in a row.

Ali Gerba, what can you say about this guy? just amazing.

I don't think a lot of people expected Canada to be 2-0-0 after the first two games at the Gold Cup! They have both been 1-0 wins but the team has been very solid and could've scored many more. At last, it seems like the Canadians are controlling the game rather than the opponent. The game against Costa Rica should be a good one, with a live broadcast on Rogers Sportsnet.

Why is it always the Americans that host the Gold Cup? If Canada was able to successfully organize the u20 FIFA World Cup then I'm sure it can do the same for an eventual Gold Cup 2011 or 2013. It would be great to some of those players live in our stadiums. The u20 WC was truly unforgettable with the likes of Harnik, Vidal, Piqué, Capel, Vela, Dos Santos, Marcelo, Jo, Pato, Adu, Altidore, Aguero, Zarate, and many more! And not to forget the 16 year old Panama goalkeeper Luis Mejia.

De Guzman MOTM. He had a great game and more than made up for his mediocre preformance against Jamaica.

AEKara OMADARA!
