DUBLIN – If there was even a sliver of doubt before, Roy Keane has ensured that everybody now knows just how big of a character Brad Guzan is.

If Canada is to ever find their way back to the World Cup, the team will need to learn how to get results in Central America.
For head coach Benito Floro, that means getting a new generation of players accustomed to competing in what can often be very hostile environments – starting on Tuesday night with a friendly against Panama in Panama City (9 pm ET; Sportsnet One).
DUBLIN – Win or lose, Tuesday's match against the Republic of Ireland (2:45 pm ET, ESPN2 and UniMas) is yet another opportunity for a new-look US national team to gain experience in a hostile environment.
