It hurt. It was Tajon Buchanan who won the ball in Canada's defensive third before Liam Fraser picked out David for the second goal.

Back in the day, Honduras was a much different team, Canada was a much different team. Fast-forward to today, and things are much different. Once the outlet pass was complete, Elis or Quioto laid it back for an on-rushing midfielder or full-back.
