It's rather pointless to go on analyzing a match that none of us have seen, so I'll keep my thoughts brief.
What did we learn?
- Canada will struggle in any match when only 2 players from a theoretical best eleven are playing (de Guzman and Jakovic). It doesn't help when the 2nd and 3rd best guys in camp come up injured before the game (de Rosario and Will Johnson). Depth is improving, but still not a strength.
- David Monsalve is, at the very least, a reasonable option at GK. At least the CSA tweeter was impressed.
- At this stage of the cycle, Stephen Hart isn't afraid to give new players a chance. Five players earned their first Canada caps last night: Monsalve, Carlos Rivas Jr., Nana Attakora, Massih Wassey and Randy Edwini-Bonsu.
- The current regime at the CSA is finally becoming Web 2.0 savvy: witness the CSA twitter feed and Youtube channel.
