Canada have also advanced to the Concacaf Semi-finals on 14 May with a chance to reach the Championship Final for only the second time in program history.

"We know that there are still two matches left at the Concacaf Men's Under-17 Championship, but today was the big one and everyone should be proud of this accomplishment because our boys were really resilient during the match.
