HOUSTON – For US national team defenders trying to make a case for themselves to Jurgen Klinsmann and the rest of the coaching staff, Tuesday’s scoreless draw with Canada provided limited opportunities.

30 January 12:02 de la tarde

Les États-Unis et le Canada se sont quittés dos-à-dos, sur un partage 0-0, seul score possible à l’issue d’une rencontre guère enthousiasmante que des joueurs hors-saison n’ont jamais été capables d’emballer.

HOUSTON – Brad Davis finally got his moment.

After years of producing elite seasons in MLS only to watch others get called to the US national team, the midfielder had a chance to show Jurgen Klinsmann in front of his home crowd that he belongs in the plans for World Cup qualifying.

While the 0-0 draw with Canada wasn't the performance or result he wanted, the Dynamo talisman is comfortable with the case he made.

HOUSTON – Though he arrived at BBVA Compass Stadium as part of the opposition on Tuesday night, a fiercely pro-American crowd treated Dwayne De Rosario to a warm ovation upon his return to a city he's called his second home.

HOUSTON – Against a Canada side made up mostly of players looking for experience, the United States turned in a performance reminiscent of the early days of the Jurgen Klinsmann era – long on possession but short on chances.

The result: A frustrating 0-0 draw on Tuesday night that had the players and coaches lamenting missed chances and opportunities in the vital area.

HOUSTON — One lackluster night does not erase three good weeks, at least according to Jurgen Klinsmann.

There won’t be any highlight reels coming from Tuesday’s scoreless draw with Canada at BBVA Compass Stadium, but the overall body of work was enough for the national team head coach.

HOUSTON — As Colin Miller emerged from the Canadian locker room at BBVA Compass Stadium, his face was plastered with an ear-to-ear grin.

His voice hoarse from 90 minutes of bellowing, Canada's interim head coach gushed at the amount of pride he was feeling for his young team that spent nearly an entire game defending but came through the other side unscathed in a 0-0 draw with the United States on Tuesday night.

On a night when the US national team played friendly visitors Canada a little too by the book, the resulting 0-0 stalemate draws a list of average grades.

The January camp group generally handled the fundamentals capably, but never showed the inspiration needed to bust apart their organized guests.


Sean Johnson (7) – He only had one save to make, but it came very early and he cruelly denied Dwayne De Rosario.
