Nigeria 2, Canada 1

First controversial game of the tournament and we couldn't even make it through a full day. This was a game between two evenly matched teams that probably should have ended with an even score. Nigeria held a 2-1 lead in the final minutes, thanks to two pretty goals, but Canada had a ton of pressure and was bringing the whole team down the field on every possession. With approximately 20 seconds remaining, the Canada keeper bombed a goal kick into the box to three Canadian players parker there. The Nigerian keeper tried to catch the ball, missed, and fell to the field when he was contacted by a Canada player. There was a wild scramble for the ball and Canada managed to head it into the net. Tie game! Nope. Referee called the play a foul on Canada and gave Nigeria the ball. Game over.

Let me if I understand your anonymous post. JD Blakely who plays at Simon Fraser (here in Canada we take time to learn our history including the correct spelling of our national heros)and has represented Canada at the youth level, sucks. Dude, you have some pretty high standards. Were you thinking that Iker Casillas and Petr Cech were going to be playing?
