Match Report

Canada scored four goals in a crucial 4:1 victory over Panama at BMO Field in the sixth match of the CONCACAF Final Round of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Panama took an early 0:1 lead in the match with a quick break down the right wing. A pass was cut back to Rolando Blackburn before the Canadian defenders could reorganize, and he put the shot past Maxime Crepeau with his first touch (6’).

Canada had a great chance to pull level just two minutes later. Alphonso Davies played a ball in to Jonathan David who found himself in behind the Panama defence. David cut a pass back to David Wotherspoon instead of shooting, and Wotherspoon’s shot was blocked by a defender (8’).

In the 16’, Davies beat two players before playing another great ball into David, whose shot was saved by the diving Panamanian keeper.

In the 23’, Davies again was able to beat multiple defenders along the top of the box before shooting from distance, but his shot was parried away by Luis Mejia.

In the 28’, an in-swinging corner from Davies forced the keeper into making a save and pushing the ball over the crossbar. On the resulting corner, again taken by Davies, went off the head of Panama’s Michael Murillo and into the far post, tying the match up at 1:1 (29’).

In the 36’, Stephen Eustaquio played a beautiful ball over the top to Wotherspoon, but the shot soared over the goal.

Just one minute later, Panama’s keeper was just able to beat Davies in a footrace to a loose pass back to prevent a breakaway.

The sides were tied 1:1 at halftime.

Canada came out with continued pressure in the second half. In the 49’, Wotherspoon was played in wide on the wing, cut back inside and took a shot that sailed just inches wide of the far post.

In the 50’, Tajon Buchanan played a ball in over the top to find David who tried to take the shot first time on the bounce but the keeper got just enough of a touch on it to prevent a clean shot.

Canada took a 2:1 lead with just under 30 minutes remaining thanks to a phenomenal individual effort by Davies, who sprinted close to 80 yards down the sideline to be able to just keep the ball in play and past the Panamanian defender. He continued the run into the Panama box on a two-on-one break, cutting back inside against the lone defender and sliding his shot into the net (66’).

In the 69’, Buchanan was played in behind by Mark-Anthony Kaye but a Panamanian player was just able to get back in time to block the shot.

Canada doubled the lead when Richie Laryea played a cross in to the back post that found the head of Buchanan who made no mistake with the header, making it 3:1 (72’).

David scored a fourth goal for Canada in the 78’. Davies floated in a cross that dropped nicely for David, who hit his shot first-time back across the keeper to seal the victory.

Panama nearly got one back in the 85’ during a hectic moment in the Canadian penalty area. Crepeau made a great save and then the Panama attacker was ruled offside before he could put in the rebound.

In the 88’, Charles-Andreas Brym played in a low ball across the box, but Jacob Shaffelburg and Kaye were both unable to get to it in time to touch it into the net.
