Canada 6, Cuba 0 | 2019 Concacaf Nations League Match Recap

Sunday September 8th 2019

By Dylan Butler

Junior Hoilett scored a hat trick to help lead Canada to a comfortable 6-0 win over Cuba in the opening match of the Concacaf Nations League A, Group A Saturday night at BMO Field.

Canada’s high pressure forced a turnover that led to Hoilett picking a ball off in the attacking third. An overlapping run by Jonathan David opened up space for Hoilett and the Cardiff City winger fired a low shot inside the near post to give Canada a 1-0 lead in the 13th minute.

David then doubled Canada’s lead on a stunning individual effort. He took Mark-Anthony Kaye’s long ball down with the outside of his foot, took a touch around Yosel Piedra and them pumped the brakes to avoid a sliding Erick Rizo before nutmegging goalkeeper Sandy Sanchez.

Sanchez robbed Alphonso Davies of a third goal four minutes later, diving to parry his first-time shot off the crossbar after the Bayern Munich midfielder ran on to a Richie Laryea service.

Miscommunication in the back in the 41st minute allowed Maykel Reyes an open shot from 12 yards out. But Milan Borjan dived to stop the low shot.

Hoilett bagged his second goal in the 50th minute, taking a terrific switch by Jonathan Osorio off his chest before firing low and inside the far post from just inside the 18-yard box.

Two minutes later, Hoilett returned the favor, slipping a ball to the back post where the Toronto FC midfielder slammed in after David put a shot off the post.

Vancouver Whitecaps central defender Doneil Henry got in on the fun with his first career international goal, poking out his left foot for the finish in the 65th minute and Hoilett had his hat trick with a cool finish from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute.

A low shot and a penalty?

Are we sure that's the same Junior Hoilett that plays for Cardiff?
