Canada Come Up Horribly Short in Florida

It’s back to the drawing board for the Canadian MNT, the Florida rain effectively dampening their spirit, allowing the US to easily avenge their lacklustre defeat in Toronto four weeks ago.

The manner of defeat will haunt coach John Herdman who watched his side experience first-half meltdown, before rallying back into contention after the break, only to concede a fourth goal in the closing minutes.

Simply they were just not sharp enough in the key opening period of the game. Like a deer caught in the headlights or resembling a classic case of stage fright, they were leaden-footed in defending the Americans first corner of the game.
