2-0 Canada, DeRo with both goals (second on a PK)... first goal should have NEVER happened. The goal however was all set-up with Stalteri's great first touch to set himself up to knock a great ball in to the back stick.

Onstad was solid, no thanks to the young Quebec guy at the back. He's young but man does he seem to make poor decisions.

Only 2 minutes of extra time added which seemed to be a bit of a joke considering the amount of time Onstad was down as well as Harmse.

The other big joke is Dobson and his play-by-play. 30 minutes to go... "Canada up 2 nil and this is very discouraging!" or something to that effect when Haiti was seeing more of the ball. Fcuk me, yeah, there was a spell of breakdowns but they were up 2-0 donkey! These things happen in football.

Grrrrrrr.

:D

It was advertised to start at 6:00...even the tv schedule on channel 2 showed it starting at six on sportsnet!!!
They were showing some Blue jays Baseball Weekly....

I know, started to panic but eventually found it, glad I did though, was a good game to watch, although as said before the commentating wasn't the greatest, but I've heard worse.

Advancing on Merit
Sportsnet

Funny how things work out. This is the first time Canada has ever qualified for the Gold Cup quarter-finals without help. As you remember, they made it in 2000 on a coin toss and in 2002 by the drawing of lots. Also in 2002, they beat the same Haiti team 2-0 in the Orange Bowl to open the tournament.

Guatemala will be tough. So will watching all the diving!:rolleyes:

Moving on up June 13, 2007 (AP) ZURICH, Switzerland (CP-AP) Sportsnet -- Canada has climbed 38 spots in the FIFA world soccer rankings after a pair of wins at the Gold Cup this month. Victories over Costa Rica and Haiti at the tournament boosted the Canadian squad from No. 94 in May to No. 56 in the June rankings released Wednesday. Only Armenia, which moved up 48 spots, had a bigger improvement than Canada in the rankings..... Italy kept its No. 1 place while France overtook Brazil to climb to the No. 2 spot. Brazil was third, while Germany climbed one spot to fourth -- its highest ranking in four years -- and Argentina fell two spots to fifth.

Next stop....Top Ten!! :D :cool:

Tomorrow's game is available LIVE only on GolTV @ 1PM.

No idea if any other channel is showing it on tape-delay. Anyone know?

Cheers,

The announcers in this game sound like they are broadcasting from inside a tin can and are calling a hockey game.

Especially when Canada goes up 1-0 and the play by play guy announces:

"And the Maple Leafs are on the board!"

I'm serious.

The game is also on Sportsnet East Digital right now if you can stomach Dobson :rolleyes:

This game may be a better performance than the Costa Rica game.

3 buzz at the half!

Since I was following Regs initial time, just watched possibly the best half of Canadian soccer I've seen in a long, long time. Looking forward to the semi-final, we keep playing like this and we can win it.

Kick off time is definitely 4pm Pacific. Roger's Sportsnet are supposed to be carrying the game although the TV schedule posted on their website doesn't appear to have been updated.

It will be LIVE on GolTV & one of the Sportsnet digital channels (so far Sportsnet EAST has had it live the 2 times previously).

It's going to be a great test for Canada...

In other news, Guadaloupe (sp?) pulled off a huge upset in knocking off Honduras in quarterfinal action. They will meet Mexico in the other semi - Mexico needed extra time to beat Costa Rica 1-0.

This game is to be played in Chicago?

I happen to be flying in to Chicago on Thursday for a sales meeting. I'm going to try and get one of the local guys to hook me up. He's a former player, so hopefully...
