Canada remained top of its group in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers to be hosted in Qatar, by defeating Honduras 2-0 on Thursday in San Pedro Sula.
Even without their star, Alphonso Davies, who was troubled by myocarditis, as a result of contracting COVID-19, the Canadians delivered many beautiful offensive sequences.
Representatives from Maple Leaf quickly silenced the home team’s fans by scoring in the back net in the 10th minute. After a superb maneuver near the opponent’s penalty area, Tajon Buchanan tried to shoot the ball for his teammate in front of the net, but his relay was touched by Denil Maldonado, the opposing defender, who pushed the ball behind his goalkeeper.
The Maple Leaf members dealt a knockout blow to their opponents in the second half. In the 73rd minute, Jonathan David masterfully controlled a long succession of Liam Fraser with his chest, before quickly defeating the opposing defenders and passing over the opposing goalkeeper.
Canada goalkeeper Milan Burjan also referred to himself several times in front of his team’s goal in order to keep a clean sheet. He made three saves.
This victory allows John Herdman’s men to keep their record intact, with five wins and four draws. They have 19 points in nine games.
And this victory is all the more significant since their two biggest opponents, Mexico and the United States, won today’s duel. The Americans will also be their next opponent on Sunday.
