Canada 5, Jamaica 0

This became a blowout about three minutes into the game. Jamaica used its patented, "Seven guys forward with only one defender who doesn't usually play soccer" defense to give Canada's Tavis Workman an open look, and he burried the first goal. I think he got at least one more as well, but I'm not sure. Jamaica has some serious issues to work through defensively if they want to make the playoffs. Those issues might not have been so glaring if they could put the ball in the net, but on Saturday night they couldn't sniff that either. For the people who were commenting in my previews that Jamaica is an elite team: I told you so.

So now it isn't about how well Canada played but how poorly Jamaica played. For all the comments you made about how Canada sucks, I told you so.

My bad. Canada played exceptionally well, especially on the defensive end. I wasn't trying to take anything away from their victory - it was well-deserved. Just pointing out that Jamaica is a definite fraud and certainly not on Canada's skill level. Congrats to Canada on a big win.

i would like to see canada play a team that plays the similar, shitty style of soccer.. park the bus and counter.. it would be a boring match but i think all canada has is the counter, if teams take that away canada will be screwed.. they rely so heavily on defending, so i say a team gets up 1 nil early on canada, they r done.

just saying

Canada will never win this tournament with there game style. Rep. Ireland is way too good, and when I say wayyyyy tooo good, I MEAN WAYYYYYYYYYYYY TOOO GOOD. They will win this tournament again this year.

Ya Canada doesn`t have the all round skills to make it to the finals, they have no possesion ability and ya once they`re down early and a team can keep more ppl back to protect against a counter -attack, they are donskies. This group has only just begun, you never know whos makin it out but Jamacia didnt do themselves any favors by NOT even scoring a single goal!

Canada is a one man show ... Tavis. Shut him down and you've won the game.
