    I totally agree, but what is more likely: that a world class (or close to it?) striker like David continues to be snakebitten for Canada, or that he eventually displays the scoring touch that he's displayed at every level professionally and also previously for country? 
    Over time, with class players, conversion rates on chances will revert to the norm. What we should focus on, and be encouraged by, is how many chances this team continues to create, and how relatively few they have given up.

    I think it's fair to separate his performances in this Octagonal from previous rounds. And whether or not you think he was slumping, it's clear from his and his teammates' reaction to his goal and to previous chances and decisions that that's how he was feeling.

    I'll first start by saying that playing a round of golf for work couldn't have come on a worse day.  However, I left 4 holes early to get to the game in time.  Arrived 60 minutes before kick off but unfortunately had to wait another 30 minutes for my girlfriend and her uncle.  I was not a happy man, waiting in line to get to the game.  Arrived about 20 minutes in so my player analysis may be a bit off.
    But first, what an atmosphere BMO Field was yesterday.  It was truly electric and thank you for everyone who helped organize on here.
    Crepeau - Once again, did basically all that was asked of him.  Both him and Borjan have been very solid so far.  I loved seeing Crepeau pull in both Pantemis and St Clair after the game for a quick keeper moment as well.
    Vitoria - Another great performance.  An absolute beast in the air and incredibly calm.  Has become a great leader for our country.  For those people who ever question a players late commitment to Canada, let them be reminded of Vitoria and everything he has done for our program in the past few years.
    Miller - Continues to impress me every game.  A defensive rock back there.  His touch is his weakness but he is tough as nails on the field and incredibly nice off the field.
    Johnston - Another absolute rock defensively.  It's starting to shock me that both Miller & Johnston are still in the MLS (not that MLS is a bad league anymore).
    Laryea - Although I missed the goal against live, replays show that he was sort of out of position once again.  And that early on in the game, he should not be gassed.  However, a constant threat going forward and a pinpoint cross to Tajon on that goal.
    Tajon - Incredible performance once again.  At this rate, Brugge could probably sell Tajon for a profit in January.  His career path is going to be something to watch.
    Osorio - Not his best performance but always the right choice to start on his home field.  Compliments Eustaquio quite well.  Sitting in the friends and family section and a couple times from the bench he went to the crowd to get loud.
    Wotherspoon - From the 25 minutes I saw in the first half, he looked out of place with some poor or missed touches and a rough shot but I thought he was quite good to start the 2nd half.  There was a period of time where we couldn't get much possession and his sub was timed perfectly by Herdman.
    Eustaquio - I continue to be in awe of his performances.  He will never get the headlines like Davies or Tajon but he is absolutely on of our most important players on this team.  Watching him live and seeing some of the things he does and pulls off is incredible.
    Davies - The best in CONCACAF and it's not even close.  That is all.
    David - Thankfully got his goal and was much more involved this game but him passing up that one chance really showed his lack of confidence with Canada.  Strange, considering his run with Lille coming into this break.  But overall happy with his goal and performance.  I hope he never shoves Davies like that again after his goal 😂
    Adekugbe - Solid performance off the bench.  His presence helped Canada control the game more once he was on.
    Kaye - Also, another good substitution from Herdman.  Also helped control the game once coming in.
    Shaffelburg - Was unable to do much but great to see him get into the game on his home field.  He is constantly looking for runs in behind.  It was fun watching him off the ball.
    Piette - Brought in to close up the game and to give Eustaquio rest and he did his job.
    Brym - Definitely should have been Millar on instead of Brym.  However, it was his best performance of this break.  He showed some glimpses and was able to get under Panama's skin.  Any criticism of his performance last night is undeserved but I believe Millar should have been there after his performances vs Jamaica.
     
    Sat in the friends and family section and it is always special to see the friends, families and fans wait around after the game to mingle with the players.  One thing that stood out to me, was the amount of kids that were screaming for Davies when he came over.  Asking for autographs and his jersey, etc.  Most friends and family waited around for the Canadian players but Davies had groups of screaming kids calling his name.  I mentioned how great it is that we now have a superstar player that kids can look up to in this country.
