7:03 p.m.— National Anthems. This one will get underway in about three minutes.
7:01 p.m.—The U.S. are taking this game personally. It’s about time.
6:53 p.m.—John Herdman earned a lot of credit for last month’s win over the U.S., and rightfully so. He constantly carries himself with a cool and collected demeanour and will downplay situations at times, but I was in te locker room with Herdman and his family after the win at BMO Field, and I can tell you that this match means something to him. He was ecstatic to say the least.
