The American attack was feckless in its attempt to break down the sturdy Canadian bunker, while the US defense was not strenuously tested for much of the match.

American defender Parker Walsh has been added to the roster at Karlsruher SC.
The club was forced to look for a replacement for defender Sebastian Schiek, who has been sidelined for the season with a knee injury. Walsh has signed a contract which will keep him at KSC until the end of the season.
