Recipe for Success: Davies on Larin = Tor
Despite playing a 16-month hiatus, the Canadians didn’t take long to find their beat at Exploria Stadium in Orlando (Florida, USA). After a superb free kick by Davis, Kyle Larrain (19) took the lead to make it 1-0. After a few minutes, Davis played at his pace, ran a long ball in front of the goalkeeper and found Larryn again in the middle (27), which rose to 2-0. After the next goal from Richie Larrea (59) and Bermuda (63) – with the kind help of the Canadian goalkeeper – Davis was once again the one who triumphed on the left and found Laren (69) only for the third time to push. Substitute Theo Corpiano (81) set the last point to win 5-1.
