Canada were eliminated from the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup after falling 2:3 to Haiti in a Quarterfinals heartbreaker. Reaching the Knockout Stage for the second tournament in a row, Canada were eliminated after conceding three times in the second half to their Caribbean opponents.

Canada led 2-0 on goals by Jonathan David and Lucas Cavallini before Haiti's Duckens Nazon, Hervé Bazile and Wilde-Donald Guerrier reversed the scoreline for their fourth consecutive win at the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup. Canada thought they scored an equaliser just five minutes from full time, but captain Atiba Hutchinson was just offside before he beat the goalkeeper Johny Placide.

"We are all gutted," said John Herdman, Canada Soccer's Men's National Team Head Coach. "We are disappointed in that second-half performance because we gave Haiti everything that they wanted. We've got all the talent here, but at the end of the day Haiti were very direct and made it difficult for us. That was tough.

"It's a young team that is learning and growing, There are some learnings in every loss. For this group to stay together, we need to keep believing in each other, keep believing in what we’ve put together.”

The 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup has provided Canada with an opportunity to face top Concacaf nations for the first time since 2017, all with an eye on preparing for upcoming FIFA World Cup Qualifiers towards Qatar 2022. Canada won two of four matches and reached the Knockout Stage in back-to-back tournaments for the first time since 2009. Looking ahead to the Fall, Canada will next face Cuba and USA in a four-match home-and-away group series from September through November in 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League A, starting with a home match against Cuba on Friday 7 September at BMO Field in Toronto.

In the loss, both David and Cavallini scored their seventh goals of the 2019 calendar season, equaling the national record set by Igor Vrablic back in 1985. David also set a Canada record with six goals scored at a Concacaf Gold Cup and is now tied with Dwayne DeRosario and Ali Gerba for the most goals in the Concacaf Gold Cup. In all, Canada scored 14 goals and conceded six in four matches played across four states at the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup in Pasadena, California, Denver, Colorado, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Houston, Texas.

Canada’s Concacaf Gold Cup roster featured eight players 22 and younger with seven players attending their first Gold Cup. The average squad age was under 26 years old and the starting lineup for the Quarterfinal match included four players 22 and younger including two teenagers.

“We have a young team and a lot of talent," said Atiba Hutchinson, Canada captain. "This is a learning experience for everybody. We wanted to go into this tournament and make some statements and prove that we are here to play in Concacaf. We wanted to win this tournament but we were unfortunate. We know the qualities that we have, but there are some things to which we have to get better. We will pick ourselves up and move on from this.”

In the second half, coach John Herdman replaced Osorio with Mark-Anthony Kaye (64’) and Cavallini with Ashtone Morgan (80’).

Of note, Atiba Hutchinson made his 84th career appearance for Canada, moving him into a tie for second place on the all-time Canada list (tied with Paul Stalteri at 84, trailing Julian de Guzman with 89).

Canada’s Men’s National Team will look to build on the momentum of its record-breaking performance during the 2019 Concacaf group stage to advance past Haiti in the Quarter-final stage of the competition on Saturday 29 June at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. Canada advanced out of Group A in second place winning two of its three matches while Haiti topped Group B with a 3-0 record.

“It’s going to be a tough match, this is a good Haitian team, they won Concacaf Nations League Qualifying and now they’ve beaten one of the tournament favourites,” said John Herdman, Canada Soccer’s Men National Team Head Coach. “It will come down to the will and the desire to get the job done and the concentration tactically to manage their athleticism."

Canada won group matches against Martinique and Cuba by a combined score of 11:0 while falling to Concacaf powerhouse Mexico 1:3. Thus far at the competition, the Canadian squad have set new team records for most goals scored in a match and largest margin of victory at the Concacaf Gold Cup along with impressive individual marks of two hat tricks in one match (Jonathan David and Lucas Cavallini against Cuba) and Milan Borjan setting a new Canadian record of four career Gold Cup clean sheets.

The rising Haitian squad won all three of its group matches over Bermuda (2:1), Nicaragua (2:0), and Costa Rica (2:1) in one of the most notable results of the competition thus far.

“All the training, preparing, everything we’ve been doing over the past year is preparing for these type of moments,” said Atiba Hutchinson. “We’ve put a lot of work into the last few days in training and scouting our opponent and doing whatever it takes to be ready for that day. We’re all excited for it, we’ve waited a long time for this so we just want to get the game going and go out play our football and express ourselves and put in a good performance. We’ve been talking about now that we’re into the knockout stages we need to be a little bit more decisive and take our game to another level. That’s what’s it going to take to get through this game and continue to push forward in this competition.”

Canada has faced Haiti ten times in the two nations’ history, however, have not met the Caribbean side since 2007. Canada has a record of seven wins, one loss, and two draws, including victories in six consecutive matches. Despite the strong historical record, Canada is anticipating a fierce battle from the combative Haitian side.

The winner of Saturday’s match will head to Arizona to face the winner of the Mexico-Costa Rica Quarter-final on Tuesday 2 July at University of Phoenix Stadium.

At the most recent Concacaf Gold Cup two years ago, Canada advanced to the Quarter-final stage before falling to Jamaica. Canada will be looking to improve on that performance by reaching the Semi-final stage for the first time since 2007.

MEN’S NATIONAL TEAM : https://www.canadasoccer.com/men-s-national-team-p144311

Canada took care of business with a record-setting performance in the group finale at the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup. Canada won 7:0 over Cuba with hat tricks by both Lucas Cavallini and Jonathan David, the first-ever double hat trick performance by a Men’s National Team attacking duo. Junior Hoilett also scored for Canada.

The win earns a place in the Quarterfinal stage of the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup to be played 29 June in Houston, TX. Across three group stage matches, Canada finished with six points and a 2-0-1 record, defeating Martinique 4:0, losing to Mexico 3:1, and winning 7:0 over Cuba. The Cuba victory set a Canada record for goals in a Concacaf Gold Cup match. Canada will face Cuba again in ten weeks when it hosts them in the Concacaf Nations League A home match to be played at BMO Field on 7 September in Toronto.

“I’m proud of the boys. It was one of those games where we had to take it to them and really keep our tempo high, said John Herdman, Canada Soccer’s Men National Team Head Coach. “We’ve just got to focus on what’s next. They guys are ready and we just have to keep moving in the right direction.”

Canada awaits the final results from Group B to determine who they will meet in the Quarterfinal round. Mexico defeated Martinique 3:2 on 23 June in the Group A finale in Charlotte, NC while Costa Rica and Haiti will battle on 24 June in Harrison, NJ to determine first place in Group B. Canada will face Costa Rica or Haiti on 29 June at 19:00 ET LIVE on TSN and RDS.

“Good result, good atmosphere. We always knew what our goal was coming into this tournament, we just want to continue to be positive, recover well and be ready for our Quarterfinal match,” said centre back Doneil Henry.  “I think our defence made it possible. We know what kind of quality we have up front, we have to be disciplined and patient. Credit to Cuba, they came out here with a lot of pride. We have a lot of respect for these guys as an opponent. We’re really excited for what we’ve got next. Every time we step on the pitch it’s an opportunity to show well for our country. While I’m here I want to continue to be positive and stay true to my colours.”

Canada showed their quality in the first half pushing wing backs up the pitch and moving the ball well through the midfield to find wide backs in space and in advanced positions up the pitch. Scott Arfield and Junior Hoilett frustrated the Cuban midfield and backline and Jonathan David and Lucas Cavallini were a threat throughout the half. David’s opening goal came through the backline as Derek Cornelius stepped forward and played a long ball up the wing to Junior Hoilett. After taking his space, Hoilett played a ball on a platter for David who sidefooted the ball into the Cuban goal.

After a spell of physical play, Lucas Cavallini exerted his presence and scored three consecutive goals.  His first goal came after a Cuban backline mistake nearly resulted in an own goal with Cavallini ensuring the ball was over the line after it went off the post in the 21’.  Just before half, Cavallini struck again off a David pass initiated by Alphonso Davies inside the six yard box in the 44’. Cavallini lept into the air and kicked out to nick it into the Cuban goal. Cavallini’s third goal came a minute into added time when he slid in the box to bury Davies’ pass off a wide left rush.

Early in the second half, Davies went on a long run with David trailing to allow for an overload in the Cuban box. Davies played the ball into the path of David who turned it on goal but it ricocheted before Junior Hoilett put it behind for Canada’s fifth in the 50’.

David added more goals to his first half opening marker scoring at 71’ and 77’. Off a Jonathan Osorio corner in the 71’, the ball fell to Scott Arfield atop the box whose shot bounced off a defender to the top of the box where David was waiting to drive it home. Just six minutes later, David was at it again pressuring the Cuban defence and shielding the player off the ball which Hoilett picked up and played to David who earned his hat trick.  

David is currently the top scorer in the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup with five goals. He has a total of nine goals and five assists in seven matches with the Men’s National Team. Cavallini has scored four goals in the tournament and has a total of nine goals and one assist over 14 matches for Canada. 2019 marks the first year that two players have had six or more goals with David and Cavalinni each registering six this year.
