The United States preferred and dominated their group in the first leg of the Gold Cup. The last challenge – the most important – against Canada, was the least obvious of these characteristics, but their level allowed them to be one step ahead of John Herdman’s group, which on occasion had the offensive weapons of Jonathan David and Alfonso Davies. missed out.
My job would be to describe how the start was, the presentation of the teams, but the USMNT did not allow us to score our goal in the first minute of the game. The offense was immediately armed in the center and the rebound was about to take the ball away from Gianluca Busio, but it could have been sent into left field where Sebastian Lelet was. LA Galaxy midfielder He soon noticed the presence of his teammates in the field and sent a low pass that all but passed until Shaq Moore appeared from below and merely pushed the ball. Celebrate.
Therefore, the match was a good order for the United States, but the offensive intensity could not manifest so clearly. With the passage of time, Canada’s game was also made and the biggest proof of this was in the second half. Within seconds of returning from the locker room, the Canadian advanced with a shot from Junior Hoylet and later another shot from Tajon Buchanan. For fifteen minutes they were perfect, but they were never able to nail and the spell was called off for the final moments of the game without an active United States and a frustrated Maple squad.
The result reflected how short the match was in football, but It didn’t bother Greg Berhalter as he led his field with nine points and a first-leg finish. This leaves Canada with six points but with qualified for the quarter-finals and now they are only waiting for their opponent who will come from Sector C, where Costa Rica and Jamaica have already qualified.
How can there be a crossing of the quarter finals?
The status of that style between the United States first and Canada second, now Costa Rica and Jamaica, remains to be known. Actually, the deciding match of that group will be between them at the Exploria Stadium. At the moment, they are evenly matched, so in the event of a tie, Costa Rica will play first against Canada and Jamaica will go up against the United States. Only the victory of one party will change the new struggle.
