That's a red card tackle by Lo Celso

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini.

So proud of this Canadian team. They finally got it right. The day I met the president of the soccer federation many years ago, I told him to his face that an immigrant select team will beat the joke of a national team they had going in the 90's/00's. There was such a disconnect between the talent level we were seeing in the playgrounds and the national team.
They've since removed politics from team selection put together a solid soccer strategy that has been yielding fruits.

We welcomed 1 million new immigrants last year! With this influx, coupled with many kids switching from hockey to soccer, the talent pool is sure to increase. Expect to start seeing Canada regularly at the world cup. This is the 1st time ever that I can confidently say that the current Canadian men's national team will whoop the current SE in a competitive or friendly match.

We tried. But tried is not enough. The Argies deserved to win though.

Thought Canada should have atleast gotten one penalty call out of 3 or 4 incidents, bad officiating. Also, what were the argies doing arriving 20 mins late for 2nd half? That was an extra 20 mins to prep for second half. Hope they get fined for that. Typical cuntish behaviour. They always find some underhand means to gain advantage. Can't get away from being cunts.

That is why I will support any team that plays against Argentina. At the last WC refs were calling for them. Some were even saying that the world owes a WC to Messi.

Imagine psyching up your players after a goaless first half for the second half, and the next thing that happens is they go stand on the pitch for 20 mins waiting for the opponent. Their first goal (46th min) is exactly the kind that takes advantage of that situation and it looked like a training ground routine, the canadians were switched off. The ref did nothing, hope he atleast puts it in his match notes.

Canada getting a dose of South American soccer antics.

I’ve been following Copa America and except for the top 4 or 5 teams, AFCON is a vastly superior tournament… but it is true that for most people, the grass always appears greener on the distance🤔❗️

Even Euro sef. The quality we've witnessed so far at this stage was better in Afcon. The Euro "minnows" actually still play like minnows.
