A young Canadian team put in a mature performance yesterday to earn a 0-0 draw against the U.S. in a Men's International Friendly in Houston.
Canada was resilient under spells of American pressure but did well to create chances of its own as well.
Canada’s Dwayne De Rosario had arguably the best chance of the match, but his volley was beaten away by goalkeeper Sean Johnson in the sixth minute.
After a season-opening loss to Denmark, interim head coach Colin Miller was pleased with the way his players responded against the Americans.
"We were disappointed with aspects of our performance on Saturday but the boys showed everything you would expect of Canadian football in terms of heart, passion and endeavour tonight," Miller told CanadaSoccerTV. "I'm very proud of the players, everyone has been totally committed since I've arrived."
Canadian keeper Simon Thomas earned a clean sheet in his first start.
Canada's next scheduled fixture is a Men's International Friendly against Japan in Doha, Qatar, on March 22.
