CAN-USA post game comments

I actually really like this game. I can't really complain about the fact that it was a tie. But I have to admit I was sorta hoping for Canada goal in the end. They fought hard, shut down the US team and played with grit and passion. I quite like soccer played that way.

Ricketts was amazing and really showed the defensive limitations of Castillo. Both goalkeepers played well. Lots of chances for both teams.

In the end the result for useful for both teams. Canada proved that they can fight their way to a result (could have won if not the the referee) and the US got a reminder of the playing style of CONCACAF opposition. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think Klinsmann has a better track record against non-CONCACAF teams.
