CANMNT_SUPERFAN reacted to Jay striker in Belal Halbouni
The kid got his first start in a big game and played very well at the CB position. Was able to play the full 90.
To reply to snowcrash, Bremen playing a 4 man back line. Hopefully he will get more playing time moving forward

CANMNT_SUPERFAN reacted to dyslexic nam in Jonathan David
He isn’t seeing a ton of the ball by any stretch, but he seems to be increasingly involved. He still seems too passive some times - jogging behind the play and watching others making things happen (versus being involved in it). But that seems less often now. On the second goal he showed that cool little fake and delay that made the defender bite to free up the space. The manager is sticking with him and they keep winning. Things could be far worse.

CANMNT_SUPERFAN reacted to Snowcrash in Stephen Eustaquio
I was posting in the Canadians Abroad thread after watching the Pacos 1-0 loss but Eustaquio is a lock for a starting mid position and you fill in the others around him. He's such a smart, efficient player. Always makes the right pass and always puts himself in a good spot both defensively and offensively.

Watched the first half and was focusing on Eustaquio. He's such an efficient player. Very comfortable on the ball and great distributor. In the starting lineup, he'st t listed as the right mid but he basically plays the Michael Bradley role when the other team is attacking, sitting in front of the back four. Since I bought up Bradley, Eustaquio's passing is night and day better than MB and his defensive positioning is also better.
When his team regains position, he'll sometimes drift back between tihe CB's to receive the ball and start the attack out from the back. He doesn't look physically imposing or even solid like a Piette but he isn't afraid to get stuck in. He sees the field extremely well and he knows where he's going to pass the ball as it's coming to him.
He'll be a fantastic addition to the national team. Canada's probably a decent back four away from a seriously competitive CONCACAF qualifier.
Also, I don't speak Portuguese but the announcer and colour guy was talking up Eustaquio a lot during the half
CANMNT_SUPERFAN reacted to Obinna in Cristián Gutiérrez
The hype would be cut in half if Chile wasn't reportedly sniffing around.
When Canada is the only realistic option for a dual national, the hype is genuine and not coming from a place of urgency/anxiety.
I would personally like to see him called to a senior camp. He's got something about him. In my eyes he's not a can't miss call-up, but for all his flaws I see his potential. I'll admit, I would like to cap him before Chile does.
Same goes for Yankov.

With Borjan and Crepeau along with a bunch of young prospects, I have no desire to recruit Bush.
CANMNT_SUPERFAN reacted to baulderdash77 in Dominik Yankov
Yankov looks like the breakout player this year for our program. I’m glad he’s going with Canada and he really could develop into a big piece for us.
There’s not a lot of 20 year olds in our program playing at a Champions League/ Europa League level and it’s always great to get talent like that in our program.
CANMNT_SUPERFAN reacted to SpecialK in Gold Cup 2021
I hope we see great mix of some fringe guys like Caniggia Elva , David Wotherspoon, Juan Córdova, Charlie Trafford. Some new young guys like Harry Paton, Theo Corbeanu, Dominik Yankov, Scott Kennedy. Also maybe Ricardo Ferreira. And have some regular guys. This Gold Cup could be super useful and important for the program to see what kind of Depth we really have.
