    Canada's way behind the times when it comes to soccer

    The game btw Canada and Congo was really frustrating...they really tried, but they just didn't finish their plays :(

    The chances they had were just unbelievable and with all that not one goal!

    What really sucks is that they didn't score ONE goal!!

    I believe they are the first hosting nation to have never gained a point or scored a goal (in like 30 years)

    LOL and Canada's the home nation!!...aww you could really tell in their faces they were so embarrassed/disappointed (Lombardo, Begovic, Edgar...)

    next time Canada...there is still time to develop...I hope to see these players improve and go onto bigger things (clubs)

    btw, did anyone notice that their players are all soo hott??....oh well I guess that won't help them win games ;P

    I wouldnt say they suck but come game day, they played teams that wanted it more and had the ability to deliver the results. Usually a host nation has a huge moral bonus going into the tournament that are even considered huge underdogs in a match(s). Unfortunately for Canada this wasnt enough to tip the scales in their favor. Theres some incredible teams in this cup so its probably more about being outplayed than sucking. But the detractors will still have their say and call a team out for failure on the field-- usually in terms of "sucking".

    With the exception of the South, football shouldn't be hosted in that hemisphere. Just imagine this. Keeping me up late for nothing.
