Canada 2-2 Costa Rica, July 10 2009
I think you might see a bit of a let down tonight. We match up well against CR, but they are going to be a lot more motivated with the added advantages of a "home" crowd and an artificial pitch on which many of them are more accustomed (Saprissa)
They're also playing to qualify while we've already made the quarter-finals (I think) because we would be the highest ranked third place qualifier in the group (if we lose).
Look forward to seeing some new faces because of some injuries and cards. JDG may not play or will likely not get full minutes, INJ will likely see action as may Jaime Peters. Would love to see Jaime at back where he seems to have resurrected his young career at Ipswich. I would also like to see future stalwart Andre Hainault get in the game but I don't think he will unless someone is injured (presently)
And how bout Dejan Jakovic, is he not the silky smooth defender we've been missing since Tony Menezes. That guy won't be too long at DC United, he'll get snapped up in Europe.
Would also like to see Simeon Jackson get some views from scouts as Gillingham are hoping nobody sees him (this coming from their manager) as he is clearly better than League One.
