Canada drew 2-2 against Kyrgyzstan, but lost in penalties. They finished fourth in the consolation "The Host Cup, Big Issue" trophy.

Canada were on a bit of a tear for a while. Did well against the Ivory Coast, proceeded to win five matches on the trot, and then lost to Italy in the "The Host Cup, Big Issue" trophy semi-final by only a single goal.

Oh, and Ukraine won the whole shabang.
