The Martinique, who started scoring in the 10th, surprised CanadaE The minute Emmanuel Rivier received the ball after a poor reception from Mark-Anthony Coy. A riveter shot deflected off Kamal Miller before hitting the inside of the post to enter the net.
However, Canada really started playing and scored three times in ten minutes.
Kyle Lauren Jr. led the corner kick from Hoylett (16)E Minute). Then Tajon Buchanan gave a presentation. He beat right-back Romario Bartellari to go towards Jonathan Osorio as he deflected the ball into the goal (20E). He made the same kind of run to cross towards the patient Hoylet before handing over to Stephen Eustaquio, who fired a powerful shot from the center of the box (26E). Completed by Theo Corbyn at 89E.
“The start of the game didn’t bother me,” said Canadian coach John Herdman. I had a good start and they scored at a good time.
“I told them we hadn’t allowed a target for a while and it could happen in the first 15 minutes,” Herdman said. Giving us a chance to respond can be rewarding. “
Herdman insisted more than once on the importance of the Martinique goal.
“This goal is necessary, he reiterated. We played two more games without achieving a goal, and then we were able to face a giant like the United States.”
The correct answer is
The important thing for Herdman was that his people were able to respond quickly to the Martinique goal, as it took only six minutes to create Kyle Lauren Tyne.
“The boys got down to work and scored very quickly.”
Herdman warned that nothing would be easy by the time the group phase was over in a week’s time.
“It’s tough in this group with the United States. Everyone wants to finish first to control their destiny in the next round.”
Canada are temporarily ahead in Group B and will play their next game on Thursday against Haiti, who play the United States on Monday night.
The Canadian team should play the tournament without Alfonso Davis, who has an ankle injury.
In his absence, Tajon Buchanan was flamboyant in the left lane.
There have been several incidents against Romario Bartheleri, the conductor of the Canadian attack.
“He enjoyed it, for sure,” John Herdman said with a broad smile. We can already imagine a combination with Alfonso. We saw him at the beginning of the camp and it was amazing.
“Our wingers love to play freely and attack their full backs, and he did an excellent job.”
Salvadorian officer Ivan Orchidas Barton Cisneros handled the game with an iron fist, handing out eight yellow cards, five of which were in Canada.
Commenting on the referee’s performance, John Herdman shrugged his shoulders.
“It’s a tournament and it’s the first game, we like a little more pleasure, he admitted. But he has set his standard and will mediate as he wishes.”
Having said that, the lack of clarity or consistency in the officer’s decisions has upset everyone.
“The problem is they don’t know why the players were sanctioned,” Herdman lamented.
