Canadians are dropping like flies
[GOLD CUP: Group C] Yes, Mexico has all sorts of problems. But things could be worse. All one has to look at is Canada, the Tri's opponent on Thursday in the Gold
Cup at Seattle's CenturyLink Field. It lost to Martinique, 1-0, in its opening game, and things have fallen apart since then.
Jackson left the team to finalize a deal with German club Eintracht Braunschweig, and Randy Edwini-Bonsu departed with a knee injury.
make matters worse, captain Will Johnson returned to Portland, where he plays for the Timbers, as he is suffering from a stomach illness. And Russell Teibert, Canada's best young player, was in bed with an undisclosed illness.
Right before the tournament even started, MLS defenders Nana Attakora and Dejan Jakovic were scratched.
