Canadians Feel Cheated After Gold Cup Semi
The Globe and Mail, June 22nd, 2007 4PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Unsurprisingly, the Canadian press is irate that Atiba Hutchinson's goal in the last minute of the CONCACAF semifinal against the U.S. was disallowed. The Americans, 2-1 winners, can argue they were the better team, but Canada really deserved more from its comeback, which began in the 75th minute when Iain Hume turned Carlos Bocanegra and fired past Kasey Keller.
 
Once again, the U.S. fell back, offering little in the way of offensive endeavor except for a late header from Clint Dempsey from a corner kick. "Despite the loss, it was a good game for Canada," The Globe and Mail said, pointing out that the 2-0 halftime score didn't reflect the play.
 
As for Hutchinson's would-be late last minute equalizer, Canadian midfielder Dwayne De Rosario said, "even if he was offside, their player [Oguchi Onyewu] headed it to our player, so that's not even offside and that's textbook rule ... when you play here, you know you're always going to get a call against you." The Houston Dynamo midfielder added, "When you look at all that stuff, it's disappointing."
