Canada 3, Colombia 2
For the first 40 minutes this was a really boring game. Canada dominated the first half with ball possession and good attacking play. Tavis scored three minutes in when when the Colombian defender coughed up the ball. Tavis tapped it over the keeper's head and in. 15 minutes into the half Canada got another one when Colombia couldn't clear the ball out of its box and a shot got ripped in. Five minutes left in the half Canada pulled a sweet tic tac toe that resulted in another tap in. Second half Canada didn't do much of anything but sit and wait for the game to be over. Colombia kept hustling and with six minutes left got a deflection in front. Then a beauty through pass with three minutes left looked like Colombia would pull within one, but the striker flubbed the easy chance. Colombia scored a free kick in the last two seconds. Should have been tie game.
