Canadian Soccer Thread

Want to chat more about one of my biggest passions, so here is the ehMac Canadian soccer thread! This thread is meant to be an on-topic thread for Canadian soccer enthusiasts and those interested in Canadian soccer developments.

[Edit] Off-topic comments, general outside commentary on the game or negative comments about soccer will be moderated heavily. (Feel free to start your own thread with your opinions and general commentary on soccer.)

Please keep this thread for talk on specific Canadian soccer details and events.

Thread is also not intended for heated trash-talk between rival clubs. (The occasional friendly gloat is fine )

Lots of big news and excitement going on (Despite Canada's mens team crashing out of Gold Cup)

First off, have to post video of this goal from Vancouver Whitecaps Eric Hassli the other week against Seattle. One of the nicest goals in MLS history. I have a ton of respect for Hassli, my kind of player... big and tough with a real scorer's instinct.

Love how the he stops the crowd dead from jumping.

Good traveling support from Vancouver.

Women's World Cup 2011 in Germany. Team Canada has great team

The FIFA Women's World Cup starts this weekend, and Canada has an amazing team that we should all be supporting!

Canada is playing hosts Germany this Sunday, June 26th at 12:00 PM EST on CBC

This is a big deal folks! 73,000 tickets have been sold for this opening match!

Canada came in first place for the World Cup qualifying tournament in 2010, winning all 5 games without conceding a single goal.

Since the tournament, they've posted a record of 10 wins, one draw and two losses so far in 2011.

Bandwagon jumpers are more than welcome!

Of note, Canada will be hosting the women's world cup in 2015.

Beat me to it. Quite the goal from the Canadian keeper.

Real promise to see our younger teams doing well. Bodes well for our men's future to have some real good academies in Canada and development systems in place.

6 Players from Vancouver Whitecaps academy
8 Players from Toronto FC's academy
3 Players from Montreal Impact's academy.

Very exciting times.

Not real directly Canadian related, but worth posting. Good game last night in Seattle with Seattle Sounders vs New York Red Bulls. 46,065 in attendance for a regular season evening weekday game!

Canadian content... Canadian keeper Greg Sutton made quite the bone-headed move to let in a goal.

Also, one of the funniest goal celebrations I've seen in awhile. Don Cherry's head would explode from all the goal celebrations and "show-boating" as he'd call it. Me... I love passionate and funny goal celebrations. Love it when players jump into the stands and celebrate with the fans.

Notice the first goal for New York against Casey Keller. Almost the EXACT same spot he was scored on from the Eric Hassli goal a week or so earlier. That corner is cursed for him.

Vancouver Whitecaps beat Philadelphia this past Saturday in Vancouver. Another cracker of a goal, this time by Alain Rochat:

A bit of perspective on this goal and tie against England in the U-17 World Cup.

The tie gave Canada it's first ever point in the tournament and ended a 13 game losing streak in this tournament going back to 1987. Canada has been out-scored in this tournament 45-3 until tying England.

So yeah, baby steps, but steps in the right direction nonetheless.
