Match Report

Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team played to a 1:1 draw against Mexico at Estadio Azteca in the CONCACAF Final Round of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Canada’s first opportunity came in the 15’ on quick break attack. Richie Laryea was able to break past two tackles and played a nice give and go with Alphonso Davies. Laryea’s strong shot was saved by the diving Mexico keeper and the rebound was fired over the net by Tajon Buchanan.

In the 18’, a giveaway in the middle of the park created a dangerous opportunity for Mexico as Hirving Lozano was able to cut inside and get a shot away, but it went wide of the Canadian net.

It was Mexico that would take the 1:0 lead. Fullback Jorge Sanchez was played in over the top as the home side quickly switched the play across the field and he slotted a shot coolly past Canadian goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau (20’).

In the 31’, Buchanan put on a burst of speed and won the footrace against two Mexican defenders to the ball and put in a beautiful cross that found Davies, but he wasn’t able to get enough of a touch on the ball to steer it into the gaping net.

In the 34’ Buchanan was played wide by Jonathan Osorio, and his shot was deflected in behind by a defender for a Canadian corner.

In the 40’, Stephen Eustaquio floated in a perfectly weighted free kick to find the run of Steven Vitoria but the header was saved by the Mexico goalkeeper.

Canada equalized late in the first half. Davies played a pass that split the two Mexico defenders and found Osorio free in the box and Osorio picked out the far corner (43’).

In the 58’ Mexico came close to taking the lead again, as Jesus Corona was played in behind the Canadian defence thanks to a quickly taken throw-in. His shot at the near post was saved by Crepeau.

In the 64’ the ball was played in towards the Canadian back post, forcing Alistair Johnston to have to get a head on it to keep it away from the Mexico attacker. Johnston’s header hit his own crossbar and was fortunately cleared to safety by Vitoria.

Liam Fraser’s first touch of the game was a fantastic chance to give Canada the lead, but the shot was pushed over the crossbar by the Mexico keeper (79’).

In the 88’ Mexico switched the ball brilliantly across the Canadian penalty area before Lozano hit a shot that was just inches wide of Crepeau’s near post.
