USMNT can’t hold on as Canada grabs 1-1 draw in World Cup qualifying: US vs Canada
US vs Canada : The redesigned American men’s football team quickly ran into trouble in the World Cup qualifiers. When Cyle Larin led the Canadian team to a draw at 11 on Sunday night, it wasted Brend Aaronson. (Brend Aaronson)’s second goal.
American star Christian Pulisic missed the 00 opening draw held in El Salvador on Thursday because he returned to health after testing positive for COVID19.
Pulisic was full of energy and injected some creativity that Americans lacked in the process, helping to contribute to Aaronson’s goal in the 55th minute.
But defenders DeAndre Yedlin and John Brooks were responsible for Lalin’s goal at the age of 62, while the US team emerged from the first two games of the 14 qualifying games and scored only two points in the game in Honduras on Wednesday.
Miles Robinson was closer to the winner, as Pulisic headed over the crossbar with a corner kick in stoppage time. At the
final whistle, overwhelming pro-American crowds at Nissan Stadium booed loudly.
Mexico (20) leads North America and Central America with 6 points, followed by Panama (1-0-1) with 4 points, Canada (0-0-2) is third with 2 points, leading the United States in total goals, El Salvador and Honduras more back.
Sendero Costa Rica (0-1-1) and Jamaica (02). The top three countries are eligible to participate in the tournament to be held in Qatar next year, and the fourth country advances to the playoffs.
The United States ended its record of participating in the World Cup for seven consecutive times when it was only one minute away from the 2018 World Cup.
The main reason for the failure was that the Americans failed to win the playoffs at home against Mexico and Costa Rica.
Prior to this, the United States had never lost a local qualifier since 2001. Canada’s No. 59 team against El Salvador on Wednesday lost Davis to an injury midway through the second half.
Canadians have the best team in decades and are trying to hit the soccer stage for the first time since 1986.
When Pulisic returned, the US 10th team was lacking Weston McKennie and Giovanni Renner.
McKenney violated the team’s COVID19 agreement. Which also led to Juventus abandoning the 23-year-old midfielder at the Derby della Mole against Turin in April last year.
Reyna has a strained right hamstring and will also miss Wednesday’s game.
First goalkeeper Zack Steffen missed the second game in a row. This time he missed the first game due to back spasms and tested positive for COVID19. You will also miss a trip to Honduras.
Aaronson won a throw-in and the US team also made a series of fast passes. Jordan Pefok passed the ball to Pulisic and Tyler Adams, who returned it to Pefok.
He passed it on to Kailin Acosta, who passed it on to Anthony Robinson. He crossed the front court. And Aronson stabbed the ball past goalkeeper Milan Boljan and scored the 20-year-old international’s fourth goal.
But sloppy defense led to Lalin’s 20th international goal, which was his ninth goal in this qualifying match. In the 45th minute, Alfonso Davis took the ball from the left and was replaced by Yedrin.
Davis crossed in front of the open Lalin. Who moved away from Brooks and passed the ball to goalkeeper Matt Turner.
