Match Report

Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team drew 1:1 against Honduras in their first match of the CONCACAF Final Round of FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

There was end-to-end action early in the first half, with the most significant moment coming as Alphonso Davies sped past a Honduran defender but his cut back pass wasn’t able to find a teammate, and suddenly the Hondurans were breaking quickly the other way. Brayan Moya looked to be clear through on goal, but Alistair Johnston was able to get back and block the shot.

Milan Borjan had to make two huge back-to-back saves to keep Honduras off the score board in the 20’.

Honduras was awarded a penalty in the 39’ for a foul in the box by Tajon Buchanan, and Alexander Lopez slotted a clinical finish into the bottom corner to give the Hondurans the 0:1 lead (40’).

Canada nearly equalized at the end of the first half when Richie Laryea played in Jonathan David behind the defence, but his shot was parried away and Cyle Larin’s follow-up header on the rebound was easily saved by the Honduran keeper.

In the second half, Davies’ speed continued to create havoc down the left wing, but the Honduran defenders kept making last ditch blocks to prevent him from getting the final ball across the box to a teammate.

In the 54’, Laryea turned beautifully to get away from a defender and in behind the defence, but was unable to get the final shot away. Just a minute later, Laryea was through again and fired a cross through the six-yard box but it flew past Larin and out the far side.
Atiba Hutchinson wound of and unleashed a rocket of a shot in the 61’ that looked destined for the back of the net, but it was blocked on its way through by a Honduran defender.

Canada equalized on a Larin penalty straight down the middle (66’) after Junior Hoilett’s touch took him past Maynor Figueroa and drew the Honduran defender into the foul. The play came after a fantastic 50-yard run by Laryea who found Davies wide on the overlap who then put a cross into the box.

In the 74’, it was the visiting side that nearly took the lead again, but the shot hit the post and bounced out off of Borjan and the ball was then cleared away from danger.

At the other end of the pitch, Davies floated a ball over the top to Laryea, who cut a pass back to David, but David’s shot sliced wide of the goal (78’). David had another chance in the 81’ when Stephen Eustaquio found him at the back post, but this time the shot was blocked.

Canada continued to press late in the game, and in the 88’ Davies was again able to get a ball into the box, this time to Larin who headed it down to Laryea, but the shot went high and wide.

Milan Borjan started in goal for Canada, with defenders Alistair Johnston, Kamal Miller, Steven Vitoria, Alphonso Davies, and Richie Laryea in front of him. Stephen Eustaquio and captain Atiba Hutchinson started in midfield, while Tajon Buchanan, Cycle Larin, and Jonathan David formed the starting front line.

John Herdman made two substitutions in the match, bringing on Junior Hoilett for Buchanan (46’) and Scott Kennedy for Miller (86’).
