Match Report

Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team won 2:0 over El Salvador, remaining undefeated in the CONCACAF Final Round of FIFA World Cup Qualifiers with just three matches remaining.

Canada’s first good scoring chance came in the 19’, as Samuel Adekugbe played a first-time pass across the box to Jonathan David, but the Salvadoran goalkeeper, Kevin Carabantes, made a brilliant save to deny the Canadian.

In the 21’, Carabantes made another great save, pushing the long free kick from Stephen Eustaquio over the crossbar as it appeared to be dipping into the top corner.

In the 35’ Adekugbe hit a shot on the half-volley after the ball popped out to him at the edge of the penalty area, but the attempt was blocked by a defender.

In the 40’ a quick shot from David went high and wide, after a nice little lay-off pass from Atiba Hutchinson.

Canada broke the deadlock courtesy of the captain, Hutchinson (66’). Cyle Larin made a great run with the ball from the halfway line and does incredibly well to stay on his feet after a tackle attempt by a Salvadoran defender and break to the byline before picking out the run of Hutchinson, who had sprinted the length of the pitch to catch up with the play. Hutchinson threw himself at the cross and his shot hit the near post, bounced back in play and ended up hitting Hutchinson who was on the ground and floating over the keeper and into the net.

In the 73’, Eustaquio played an in-swinging free kick which found Larin all alone in front of goal but his header went wide of the far post.

El Salvador got their first shot on target in the 90+2’, which was a straightforward save for Borjan.

Just one minute later, Borjan made an incredible save to maintain the clean sheet as he backpedalled towards his goal and leaped to push the ball over the crossbar on a shot that came from near the half (90+3’).

David doubled the lead for Canada with one of the last kicks of the match, breaking away from a defender and racing in all alone and scooping his shot over the on-rushing keeper to seal the win for the visitors (90+4’).

The CanMNT’s starting XI featured Milan Borjan in goal, with Samuel Adekugbe, Doneil Henry, Richie Laryea, and Scott Kennedy making up the defensive line in front of him. Stephen Eustaquio returned to the side in midfield after missing the previous two matches, and was joined by Atiba Hutchinson, and Jonathan Osorio. Liam Millar, Junior Hoilett, and Jonathan David rounded out the side up front.

Coach John Herdman made a triple substitution, bringing on Tajon Buchanan, Cyle Larin, and Alistair Johnston in place of Osorio, Millar, and Hoilett (58’). Mark-Anthony Kaye replaced Eustaquio (80’) and Zachary Brault-Guillard came on for Laryea (83’).
