USA fall in Toronto to Canada 2-0.

Let us be straightforward, the Americans look as bad as they are, dominated and outplayed. There has been no improvements since Berhalter too over the USMNT. Our national team is in a deep hole, lacks great leaders on and off the pitch. They are a complete embarrassment.

The Canadians were better more aggressive and determined to win. Canada Men’s National Team lead the Concacaf Nations League group so far with two wins.

USMNT saw Canada match as easy as Cuba. They were complacent, like a kid at school with talent but making no efforts. This team keeps on disappointing us every two or three games. They got trounced by Mexico and now outplayed by Canada. It is hard to be a soccer fan in this country and watch such a pale team representing our nation. The US have lost for the fourth time to a team from the Concacaf region this calendar year, after two earlier defeats to Mexico and one to Jamaica. It has been two years since the tragedy of Trinidad and Tobago and we have made no steps forward… 

Coach Berhalter comments on what went wrong:

I’m disappointed in that we didn’t match what Canada was bringing. There were too many 50/50 balls that went on their end and it was the will that got them winning those balls and I’m disappointed in that.

USMNT will need a strong response to have a chance to win the group and advance to the semifinals of the Nations League.

“We’re disappointed, but we go home and we still have a chance to win the group and that’s our objective.”

Canada make history

The last victory of the Canadians against US was in 1985! The Canadian coach, Herdman, was proud at the final whistle: 

“They’ve been hurting for a long time and they’ve wanted a night like this for a long time as well. It’s only one step. It’s only one little drop in the ocean of what I’m hoping for this team. There’s more to come.

These guys, the whole team, put on an amazing performance. The pressure, the whole game. Unbelievable. It was a hell of a match. I’m proud that the boys were ready to get on the front-foot for 90 minutes. We’ll have to adapt again. We’re going away from home; we’ll have something else up our sleeve for that one.”
