US and Canada draw 1-1 in World Cup Qualifier

The US team was set on refining their attack and took the shot in the 55th minute, with Brenden Aaronson flying into the box and sliding home a cross that couldn’t be stopped by Canadian goalkeeper Milan Borjan.

The Canadians were able to even out the score just seven minutes later when Larin took an assist from Alphonso Davis and kicked the ball home at close range.

No wins for both the US and Canada

It was the second consecutive draw for both teams. The US drew 0-0 with El Salvador in their opening match, while Canada tied with Honduras 1-1 on Thursday in their first foray into the final round of the World Cup Qualifiers for the first time since 1997.

Mexico sits on top of the table of eight teams with six points, followed by Panama with four. The United States, Canada, Honduras, and El Salvador are in a four-way tie with two points.

The three teams with the highest number of points will automatically qualify for Qatar 2022, while the team in fourth place will have an intercontinental playoff for another slot in the World Cup.
