El Salvador Defeats Canada 1-0

At the recently Men’s International Friendly match played in Houston, Canada had their best chance at the start of the second half, but El Salvador scored the lone marker in the 75th minute stealing a 1-0 victory.

Both quarter-finalists at the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup were played at BBVA Compass Stadium with a portion of the net proceeds donated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston.

Through nine matches played (this year) Canada has a 2017 international record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses.

Coming out of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Canada has managed to post one win and one loss as they move forward to the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Octavio Zambrano, bench boss for Canada mentioned “We drew some conclusions there, but we need to continue to evaluate our squad and our program.”

The young Canada lineup featured nine players with still less than 10 international matches.

“On another day, I think we could have taken the win there,” said midfielder Scott Arfield. “There are positives to take away from the chances we created. We want to get the winning mentality consistently heading towards the next CONCACAF Gold Cup and FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, but it wasn’t to be today.”

It’s interesting to remember that Canada are two-time CONCACAF champions, winning the CONCACAF Championship in 1985 and the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2000.

In 5 matches under new head coach Octavio Zambrano, Canada’s international record sits at 2 wins, 2 draws, and only 1 loss.
