    Larin and Akindele running rampant on Dominica. Yes, we've already started our 2018 qualifying campaign.

    Had to google Dominica. It looks like they have the population of Kamloops, BC. The language is English and the currency is East Carribbean Dollar. Exchange rate of 2.19 East Caribbean Dollars per Loonie.

    It was a good run though getting by British Virgin Islands in the 1st Round. Pop 28,000. FIFA votes 1.

    Equal funds shared from the profits from the World Cup too. You just know there is some asshole in their federation that keeps a lot of that money for himself and most certainly voted for Sepp. Such a terrible system.

    Watched the game. Really don't understand why JDG keeps getting called AND starts. Please for the love of god get him out of there. Also can't stand Ricketts. Zero soccer IQ. Would be better served running track.
    Should win easily in Belize.
    Some decent talent coming up but they need to move on from JDG, Ricketts and even Will Johnson.
    Attiba is a talent. Too bad he hasn't had much help.

    Always good players coming out of Pickering.

    Had our chances last night. Probably 70/30 possession for Canada. Need to take our opportunities when they come.

    Also need to defend better against boot and run countries like USA. They had a player up top that was hard to defend on the fly.

    Roster for the friendly versus Ghana. Nice to see the additions of Hoilett and Aird. I see that Bustos is included as is Cavallini. Starting to see some more talent in the ranks.

    Larin, Akindele, Hoilett, Cavallini. All attacking options up front or wide. Bustos and Froese in the middle. Sad to see no Osorio or Tiebert tho. Or Henry.

    Can't see Panama putting up a W let alone by 3.

    Eustaqio should have made it 3-1 in the 80. All alone on the 6. Brutal.

    Much better second half. Lost 2-0. But Canada missed a PK, the goalie saved the rebound and a few minutes later hit the crossbar. Chances were there.
