USA Vs. Canada, Gold Cup 2011: Dwayne De Rosario Almost Equalizes

After more than a half hour of being invisible, Dwayne De Rosario finally made his presence felt and it almost resulted in an equalizer. For the first time all match Canada got a bit of possession from the United States and knocked the ball around a bit. Slowly but surely forcing the U.S. tor retreat with their possession, some space opened in the middle and De Rosario found it. He got the ball and didn't hesitate to shoot. He struck it with pace and bend, beating U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard, but going a foot wide of the post.

Despite De Rosario's shot going wide, it was encouraging for Canada to get the chance after a spell of possession. Trailing 1-0 and being thoroughly outplayed, Canada needs to have a couple moments like the one that led to De Rosario's chance. With a few of those they can continue to build and start making headway towards leveling this match.
