    The training match ended 3-3.
    At one point we were up 3-1 but couldn't hold it!

    If you had told me in January 2020,
    "There's going to be a global pandemic from that COVID 19 thing that's presently in Wuhan and the #CanMNT won't play for the next 14 months"
    I would have said, "I believe you".
    But if you had told me,
    "The #CanMNT will play a Gold Cup match in 2021 and will receive 6 yellow cards and Henry won't be one of them"
    I would have said, "You're a crazy person".

    Smart.  Beats my technique of looking 90 degrees to the left and trying to navigate using only my peripheral vision until its in fullscreen.

    I went to see Issey Nakajima-Farran play for Tàrrega this afternoon, about 100km outside of Barcelona. Little town, they are in 5th tier. Maybe 300 spectators, 27 degrees and dry.
    It is below his level of quality, but he's on a poor team that have only won 3 of 17. He plays up high, but probably would be more useful behind another striker as there is no quality in the middle to get the ball to him. He's one of the 3-4 better players. They lost 1-3, and Issey scored when it was 0-2 after a good play on the wing where he got to the low cross before the keeper. Then they pushed, he had a few shots wide and a few on net and the team played well for a good spell until the rival got their third.
    I'd say this is at least a level low for him, it is below CPL for sure. Next year they are restructuring the Spanish lower divisions and this team will be 6th tier. Third and fourth tier will be better quality, with fewer teams, so making a side in at least 4th tier, say, will be tougher. And if you can't you are playing amateur, not pro.
    Nice to see the local kids from the club, the 8-12 year olds, surround him after the match and goof with him, he seems to have a good rapport. Also with teammates. I think I saw his father but with masks it is hard to be friendly

    If we lose this one it is much worse than losing to Honduras 8-1 those many years ago. Lost chance to play with big stars in the Oct and gain some exposure. Might cost us some of those dual nationals we want so much.

    Huitema scores. Lawrence & Huitema become another pair of Canadians who win their club championship. Buchanan scored for OL who finished second.

    Simeon Jackson scored two goals for King's Lynn in their final game of the season which was a 4-4 draw with Aldershot Town.
    In the end, Jackson played 17 games for King's Lynn and scored 6 goals (5 of the goals coming in the last 4 games of the season).

    Yes, Suriname is much improved and we have been burned by so called smaller sides.  

    Bottom line: if we can’t at least draw (not even win) against Suriname on a good pitch in a neutral venue, then we are no better off, as a National Team, than we were 10 years ago.  It’s not like we are needing to draw in Mexico or Costa Rica to qualify.
