Match Report

Canada Soccer's Men's National Team secured their first win of the Concacaf Final Round of FIFA World Cup Qualifiers with a 3:0 victory over El Salvador.

Canada opened the scoring early with a great combination play between Junior Hoilett, Jonathan Osorio, and Richie Laryea before Atiba Hutchinson put the final cross into the back of the net (6’).

Just five minutes later, Tajon Buchanan chipped a cross back into the danger area in the aftermath of a set-play and found Jonathan David who headed it home to double the Canadian lead (11’).

A free kick by Hoilett in the 15’ bounced around in the box and both Buchanan and Stephen Eustaquio got strong shots away but were ultimately blocked by an El Salvador defender.

In the 32’, Osorio got a shot away from just outside of the box but it didn’t have enough bend on it to curve into the far post, and instead the shot goes wide.

El Salvador’s best chance of the first half came in the 37’ from Enrico Duenas, who found some space and got a shot away that took a deflection off Steven Vitoria and looked dangerous but it went wide.

In the 49’, Alistair Johnston found himself in some space and put a low, hard cross through the six-yard box but none of the Canadian attackers were able to get a foot on it to steer it in.

Canada added a third goal when David stole a loose pass and broke on a two-on-one opportunity. He made a square pass to Buchanan who hesitated before calmly sliding his shot past the keeper to make it 3:0 (59’).

In the 67’ Milan Borjan made his best stop of the match as he was called into action to make a fantastic reaction save as the ball floats just over the head of Joaquin Rivas. On the follow-up play, Laryea was able to make a last-ditch tackle to stop a clear chance.

Laryea had a chance to make it 4:0 in the 86’ as space opened up in front of him and he hit a great strike that was parried away by El Salvador’s goalkeeper.

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

Coach John Herdman brought on Samuel Adekugbe for Hoilett (57’), Mark-Anthony Kaye and David Wotherspoon for Hutchinson and Osorio (70’), and Samuel Piette and Lucas Cavallini for Eustaquio and David (79’).
