Match Report

Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team continued its unbeaten run in the CONCACAF Final Round of World Cup Qualifying, retaining the top spot with a 2:0 victory over Honduras.

Canada took an early 1:0 lead courtesy of an own goal from Honduras’ Denil Maldonado who was trying to clear a cross from Tajon Buchanan, after Buchanan did brilliantly to beat a defender in a wide position (10’).

In the 15’ Samuel Piette got an important shot block after Honduras was able to put together some dangerous passes in the Canada penalty area.

In the 22’, a great passage of play in and around the Honduran box was looking dangerous as the Canadian attackers were able to link up well but the eventual shot from Buchanan didn’t have a lot of pace on it and was easily stopped by the Honduran keeper.

Just before halftime, Milan Borjan rushed out of his net aggressively and got to the ball milliseconds before Romell Quioto to deny the attacking Honduran (44’).

On the other side of halftime, Samuel Adekugbe did a fantastic job to keep the play alive at the corner flag and got the cross in to Cyle Larin, who then laid it back to Jonathan David, but David’s shot went wide (48’).

In the 55’, Junior Hoilett played a great through-ball to David who was one-on-one with a Honduran defender. He was able to get past the defender to get in alone against the keeper and tried to slide the ball past the Honduran, but the goalie was able to make the save to deny Canada a second goal.

Minutes later, Borjan had to alert to stop a header from Antony Lozano (58’).

Jonathan Osorio entered the match in the 61’ to earn his 50th cap for the CanMNT.

In the 70’, Borjan was again called into action and made a huge diving save to stop a strong header from crossing the line at the far post and maintain the Canadian lead.

Canada doubled the lead with a beautiful link of play between David and Liam Fraser (73’). Fraser played a long ball over the top of the Honduras defence from deep within his own half that was perfectly weighted into the path of David, who started his run from the Canada side of the halfway line. David did brilliantly to bring the ball down with his chest while on the run, and then lifted his shot over the on-rushing keeper on the half volley to make it 2:0.

In the 76’, a shot from Honduras’ Alberth Elis went over the head of Borjan before glancing off the crossbar and staying out of the Canada goal.

In the final minutes of the match, Borjan made another phenomenal save to maintain the clean sheet, diving down to the bottom corner to push the shot beyond the post and away from danger (90+3’).
