SOCCER — 13 October 2012

At the end of the day, a win is a win no matter how many players the opposition places on the field. On a night that included two red cards, a total of 35 attempts by the Canadian soccer team on goal, and a Cuban team that was grossly undermanned; team Canada prevailed over Cuba 3 – 0. The most intriguing aspect of this game was the fact that Cuba only dressed 10 players, when Cuban coach Alexander Gonzalez was asked why only 11 players dressed, he was reluctant to give any reasonable explanation for this missing players. What is most important is what this victory does for Canadian Men’s Soccer team; a win or a tie Tuesday against Honduras they are likely to advance to the final round of the CONCACAF qualifying, as Friday’s win gives them a record of 3-1-1 with 10 points. With this many points, Canada along with Panama, could be the teams advancing to the final six-team round of qualifying in CONCACAF; from here, the top three teams qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The last time the Canadian Men’s Soccer team qualified for the World Cup was back in 1986, hopefully this version of Canadian Men’s Soccer team can break this drought.
