Really, not a mystery. A weak and central shot that a goalkeeper who is
nowhere near as good as Neuer couldn't keep out.

Neuer? The guy who let 11 of the last 13 shots againt him in? Sure, sure.

They have Modric at 54% followed by Trump at 26% and Cristiano Ronaldo at 19%.

He has played in all eleven of Eintracht's league games this season, and
in 4 EL games, starting most of those. 1 goal, 4 assists in all
competitions. Older brother Julian, who is now retired and general
manager of Ottawa FC, still is the record cap holder for Canada with 89.
Only active player likely to break that any time soon is Atiba
Hutchinson, currently of Besiktas, with 79. But Atiba is 35, so 10 more
caps might be a stretch, with Herdman keen on blooding younger players,
and some other fairly experienced midfielders around (Arfield,
Wotherspoon, Hoilett, Osorio). Atiba is in the squad for tonight's away
game vs. St. Kitts and Nevis.

I doubt Jonathan De Guzman will get any more caps for the NL, given
their recent turn around in form with younger players. But you never
know, Renato Augusto returned for Brazil after a huge absence. Eljero
Elia got called again for the NL after a six year hiatus (two caps in
2018). Plus Geromel did not get capped at all until 2017.

And he played, and scored the only goal of a game Canada should have won
my more than 1-0. Milan Borjan was not troubled at all (he is also,
like Hutchinson, playing European Club football this year). Canada
finishes the year 4-0-0 with no goals conceded, but did not really play
anyone challenging. The upside is a bunch of teenagers got serious game
time in the Concacaf Nations' league, and looked OK.
