Gold Cup - June 19th 2019 - Canada vs Mexico

Recommended Posts

Also, do we want to throw Crepeau to the wolves? With our "backline" and Mexico's quality it could get ugly. He's still a young keeper trying to establish himself.

I say Borjan plays today and if you want to give Crepeau/Lewt a start they start against Cuba to give Borjan a rest before the knockout stage. If we can't win against Cuba with out best lineup and an MLS starter/Championship goalie in net we have bigger problems...

If the GC Wikipedia page is correct, tonight's referee will be Henry Bejarano from Costa Rica. If that name sounds familiar, he was the referee who was originally assigned to our WCQ match in 2015 at BC Place against Honduras, but was then removed.

Was just lurking on the Mex vs Can game thread in the Mexico section of Big Soccer. They seem to recognize our improvements.

One guy said this will be Mexico's only tough game of the group stage, then predicted a 3-0 win for Mexico in the same post lol.

Looks like Pizzaro and Moreno will not dress, as both trained on their own yeaterday. Their starting line-up may look like this:

Ochoa; L. Rodriguez, Alvarez, Araujo, Gallardo; C. Rodriguez, Reyes, Guardado; Antuna, Jimenez, Alvarado.

here's our projected line-up (as per goal.com):

Borjan; Millar, Henry, Cornelius, Davies; Teibert, Piette, Kaye; Arfield, Osorio; Cavallini

Good thing we have VAR, after his comments about looking out for "his fellow Spanish brothers"... Oh wait. 

Hhmm maybe he will give CAV some love haha

Alright, so if Martinique wins 3-0 against Cuba, and we beat Martinique 4-0, and Cuba lost 7-0 to Mexico, that means we're as good as Mexico mathematically, correct?

Haha as long as Martinique get the W, I'm good.  Martinique's keeper has made a class save but Cuba has looked awful defending set pieces.  Amazed it's only 1-0.

So we asked to see two strikers for ages and the one time we decide to do it is in the GC against Mexico?  That seems.... odd.   Henry is back though, and Davies is still high up the field. 

Will be interesting.

Yup. And it also means we will probably tie 7-7 against Mexico. Or maybe it goes 0-0? I'm not sure which, but I vote for 7-7.

Could be the three at the back everyone has been clamoring for

 

Larin-Cav

Kaye

Davies- WJ-Teibert-ZBG

Cornelius-Hutchinson-Henry

 

Or maybe 4-3-1-2?

               Larin-Cav

                 Davies

   Teibert-Hutch-Johnson

Kaye-Henry-Cornelius-ZBG

I'd actually love to see Davies in that role. I might be alone in that though.

Most likely to be accurate 

I had this

--------------------Larin---------Cavallini
 
‐-------------------------Davies
--------Tiebert--------------------------Johnson
------------------------Hutchinson
 
Kaye-----Cornelius-----Henry------Brault-Guillard
 
---------------------------Borjan
