USA Soccer: Tim Howard And The USMNT Defeats Canada in Gold Cup Play 2-0

After Canada opened the second half on the offensive, Clint Dempsey turned things back around in the Americans favor as his 62nd minute goal extended the United States' lead to 2-0, as they held on to defeat Canada by the same final.

Canada was better with the ball in the second half and looked determined, but Tim Howard put on a show late, holding the Canucks scoreless. He made three saves in the save half including two highlight reel saves in the closing minutes as the United States improved to 1-0 in the Gold Cup

The USMNT now moves on to Saturday night's tilt against Panama, which defeated Guadelope 3-2 on Tuesday in the match before USA-Canada.
