Game Wrap: U.S. and Canada Tie, Make Pact To Kiss Sisters

This match may have been played on U.S. soil, but it was apparent from the beginning that Jurgen Klinsmann showed up with his troops and planted the following message:

The army under my command has invaded your country. The standard of the union now waves over the territory of Canada. To the peaceful and unoffending inhabitants it brings neither danger nor difficulty. I come to find enemies, not to make them; I come to protect not to injure you ... I have a force which will break down all opposition, and that force is but the vanguard of a much greater. If, contrary to your own interest, and the just expectations of my country, you should take part in the approaching contest, you will be considered and treated as enemies, and the horrors and calamities of war will stalk you.

But just as things hadn't worked out for General Hull at the battle of Detroit in the War of 1812, things quickly went south for the USMNT General. Canada packed the defense with every man, mountie and white shirt available to stop the Americans from having any clear scoring chances. Then, before Jurgen knew it, Canada's De Rosario snuck in behind the Americans and nearly defeated them when the match had just only begun. Klinsmann's men quickly ran up the white flag, playing out the rest of the match hoping for a tie. Canada was absolved of its humilating defeat only a week prior at the hands of Denmark and the Americans were left wondering how they were going to score goals in the upcoming Hexagonal.

And the winner is...
