The Battle tested Canada and Host of the games face off against the motherland of Soccer England.
Battle tested is a great description of this team, no doubt they had the short end of the stick here because usually host countries do not have tough competition in the first stage like Canada did here.
This I think gives them an advantage, they did not loose in group play managing 1 victory and 2 draws with a +1 goal and 2 goals scored. I wasn't pretty but remember who was in the group, China and the Netherlands.
On the other hand England had 2 wins and a loss with a +1 and 3 goals against. Now remember their group included Mexico and Colombia, that even though they played well, they are no power houses.
I think defenses here are going to lock horns but the experience and the technique of Canada is superior and they should go on to thru the next stage on a very tough match.
C'MON LETS CASH!
