They also recap Canada’s U-20s defeating Costa Rica in a friendly, the lack of coverage, potential trends to watch for the second friendly and beyond.
The boys then move on to Canadians Abroad matters from Jonathan David’s next transfer, to Stephen Eustaquio and Richie Laryea seeing time on the pitch, what Sam Adekugbe could do after the season, Carlo Ancelotti’s potential future as Canada coach and more nuggets.
