    My guess is Stephen will play for Portugal at U21 (U23) level until the summer, then switch to Canada. Portugal is has too much depth at senior level.

    US Virgin Islands-Canada match thread (R)

    1) Sorry I meant a U22 (U23, Tokyo 2020 qualifying next year) team. 2) Yes; a ridiculously easy win against a very weak team in the furthest thing from a hostile environment means that there was no real challenge and that the players learned little. My point is, if we had kept the starting lineup we played with (minus Borjan - and played Busti instead), and had used our 3 subs on only U22 players, we would have been better served. We might only have won 6-0, or, if Busti had somehow majorly f-ed up 6-1. But it would at least have been a stepping stone for some young guys to get them ready for future key moments. Once the win was in the bag in the first half (we were up 5-0), tell me, what did our 3 veteran subs (Larin, Ricketts & De Jong) actually learn from this game about tactics and gameplay that they didn't already know? Seriously? Waste. Of. Fucking. Time. Herdman should have had 3 young guys, eager to prove themselves, ready to come in, to play from at least from the 55th minute.

    So we could NOT cap-tie Busti!

    -Scored a stupid amount of goals -Didn't cap-tie Zachary Brault-Guillard or Alessandro Busti -Arfield looked uncharacteristically tired and made some poor passes. -Concacaf's yank commentator managed to butcher half the names of the players To sum everything up, I was right, we should have brought a more U21 focused team but now Herdman can put this record goal scoring game on his CV. Boring.

    Canada vs Brazil Sunday Sept 2nd in Ottawa

    CFL lines were on the pitch and Brazil did have their training kit on (with logo) as you can see in that GloboEsporte article. No visible clock and stoppage time was not announced. 99% sure this will not count towards rankings or as an official game.

    Rivière was not a centre forward but did come on for Huitema.

    That formation is not quite right...Buchanan was CB right hand side and Scott was her usual defensive mid...sorry missed some of the outgoing subs! I was enjoying the game. Edit: I think it was Prince who made way for Sinclair? ...and Agnew made way for Lawrence at HT? and obv McLeoad didn't play

    Canada vs Brazil Sunday Sept 2nd in Ottawa

    Closed door friendly lineup: 22, 9, 13, 19, 1, 3, 4, 7, 2, 15, 5. Edit: First half done. Got here late. Didn't see any subs or goals 2nd half: Beckie in, Scott in Lawrence in? D'Angelo in. Buchanan out. Leon out. Labbé out. Matheson and Sinclair still warming up Matheson in for Grosso and Sinclair in Late sub Jayde Riviere in for Huitema? Brazilian bench and coach protesting calls against them like it's a Gold Medal game. Very nice late save D'Angelo. Late Brazil goal. 😣 Game over. We lost. Antoine and Rose didn't play. Did some drills at the end.

    Canada vs Brazil Sunday Sept 2nd in Ottawa

    Did they modify their website? I can't seem to find that info. I assume this game is not a full "A" international match that will count towards FIFA rankings?

    If we can find the time of the second game, people can actually go and watch from the hill beside the stadium! 😉

    Estonia called him first, before Canada ever did. In some ways it makes sense to stick with Estonia at youth level because in Europe they tend to play way more games and you can play all the way to U21 (U23). A much better system to develop players. He has one game in Iceland in September. Estonia play two more games in October but are already eliminated. That will be the end of the road for Vaikla when it comes to youth football. It will be interesting to see if Biello can get him to switch to play for the U23s. Going into Olympic Qualifying he'd likely start ahead of Busti if he files his one-time-switch. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_UEFA_European_Under-21_Championship_qualification_Group_2
