    Corazon reacted to Acid-Tone in Canadians Abroad July 3rd to 9th   
    He came on in the 55th minute (with the score 0-0) after one of the starting CB's got a red.  He played well, picked up a yellow and even had a good chance to score which he narrowly missed by heading the ball over the net on a corner kick.  The game ended with the same 0-0 score. 
    Job well done.

    Larin was super highly rated, way more hyped than Theo.  He was on everyone’s radar.  Let’s not forget that on Larin’s age 20 season he scored 18 goals in MLS.  Theo is probably going to be a backup in his age 20 season.

    Does Larin factor in this conversation?
    With 31 caps he is a bit behind Piette, but I can see him getting more caps than Sam from here on out, plus he is a year younger.

    Odd that he puts up these highlight reels of himself so quickly after every single  match.
    Have no idea what Herdman is thinking but for me I start Stephen over Sam as long as he’s fit...Sam is a nice sub option if we’re protecting a lead

    If there's a fifty-fifty ball and you want the other player carried out on a stretcher, then Piette's your guy but in virtually all other parts of the game, Eustaquio is a better player.

    He would have to be the starter of his team to pass Crepeau.
    Borjan gets underrated here a bit.  He’s a terrific keeper playing Champions League at the top of his game.
    Our program has like 4 players of CL quality right now and he’s one of them.

    Even sporadic starts for Bologna would make him top 3 for sure. I wouldn’t play him over Borjan or Crepeau yet unless he somehow becomes a starter out of nowhere though.

    I'm not sure he will ever reach Dutch National team level.  However, given he is still only 20 years old and the fact that besides Memphis the attacking level for the Netherlands national team drops off quite significantly, he may very well get the call.  Obviously also quite known in the youth system having played for the U16, U17, U18, U19 & U21 squads.
    With that being said, the fact he is playing in Turkey for one of the Turkish giants and getting regular starts, I wouldn't be surprised if Turkey was considering calling him soon.
    Now that Tomori is with England, I believe Ferdi is the current best dual national player for Canada.

    Yes. Extremely tidy player. Also noticed today that he is very much a leader in his team. How can I put this... he loudly provided passionate "constructive criticism" to his team mates when goals were given up. Good to see from a young player.

    Was sent off in the 68th minute after being given a second yellow for diving. Game ended 2-2. 
     
    Here’s a video if anyone wants to see the dive. Clear yellow in my opinion.

    Thanks for that.  Caught most of the second half.  Pacos gets the win with Stephen going the distance.   He had a nice defensive play when they were down a goal, and quickly turned it into a solid offensive opportunity.   I haven’t watched much Liga NOS but if he is playing at this level consistently I think he will be a lock for a spot in our starting 11 fairly quickly.

    This thread is overzealous. 
    Ayo is not worthy of CMNT call-up, nor is he close to the quality we have at U-23 level.
    He hasn't done much to impress me to have these conversations of "will he or won't he" .
    If he declares tomorrow that he wants to represent Canada - then great! but he still has a lot of work to do for there to be any further covnersations.

    Not really relevant but he was pictured in one of Osorio's IG posts for Canadians playing with TFC for Canada Day.
    Also Achara is now out for the season with an ACL tear, so chances of playing increased slightly.

    Henry is in the lineup for Herdman without a doubt.  He took him during a window when he was suspended and going to miss a game cause of his leadership.  Herdman will be starting Doneil in every meaningful game going forward until someone leaps over him in the Siz’s eyes. Let’s hope Ferreira stays healthy and plays regularly.  That would end Vitoria’s run in the team (and I rate him) but he is too slow to play against the faster forwards.

    Happy Canada Day. Here is my list of our current top 10 most important players, ranked. 
    1. Davies - our brightest star, can and will do it all, a phenom of world football
    2. David - the iceman, will score many, many goals for us, plain and simple
    3. Arfield - our captain, a true midfield general, experienced leadership, tenacious hard worker, creative and can score goals
    4. Hoilett - cool in possession, plays a Concacaf style ie. draws many fouls, can cross or attack the box, long range scoring threat, brings a swagger and confidence we need in our lineup
    5. Eustaquio - will establish himself as our best young midfielder as soon as we start playing games, reminds me of Julian deGuzman but is more creative and can score goals
    6. Cavallini - his game is perfectly suited to open up space for David, adds toughness, grit and experience to our attack
    7. Borjan - our best shot stopping keeper ever, a wealth of Concacaf experience, will have to be at the top of his game to keep Crepeau on the bench
    8. Kaye - our most versatile player, extremely well rounded midfielder, can score goals and protect the back line, good enough to make the jump to European football sooner than later 
    9. Osorio - our most creative midfielder, has the trust and confidence of the manager, not suited for every occasion or game, knows how to win, brings passion and big game experience 
    10. Henry - we are only as strong as our weakest link, our backline, and for better or worse it will be Henry who will anchor our backline, inconsistency has dogged Henry his entire career, but he has all the tools he needs to be an imposing and dominant centre back

    Man things have come a long way.  Shway's lineup leaves, Hoilett, Cavallini, Piette, Osorio, Akindele, Lareya and Hutch as options for the bench.  5 MLS starters, a former EPL player and a legend.  WOW.  Having depth is something I could get used to.

    I get that, but if Eustaquio is close to Piette in terms of defensive stability, the constant threat of a quick-release counter attack would keep opposing teams a bit more cautious - even if defence is our primary objective in a game.   
     
    Ultimately, I just have a feeling that we may be a more challenging opponent with Stephen in the side.

    One thing we can all agree on is that Eustaquio needs to be called up regularly going forward, and that he offers something neither Piette or Kaye do. The 3 of them are very different types of players, and that sort of versatility will only benefit the CMNT going forward
