    Tough loss. What was the match like? I'm in the Netherlands now, and I don't have access to any sort of feed. Also, if somebody wants to do pbp in here for the next couple of matches, I'd really appreciate it :) :)

    Canada should have won that game. If only they could have capitalized on their chances. The second half Costa Rica was on their heels for most of the time, even when Canada was one man down.
    Overall I was pretty impressed with Canada's play, and I think Yallop did a great job. Hopefully luck with be on Canada's side when the play USA on Sat.
