Canada opened their campaign at the Gold Cup 2021 with the right foot after beating Martinique 4-1 in a thrilling match. It was a perfect start for the John Herdman team in the tournament, after they came back from the opening goal of Martinique.
Martinique opened the scoring in the 10th minute of play thanks to a goal from forward Emmanuel Riviere. However, the North American nation didn’t hold back and sooner than later equalized thanks to Cyle Larin in the 16th minute of the first half.
Canada didn’t hold back and Jonathan Osorio and Stephen Eustaquio also scored within 10 minutes. Then, Theodor Cordeneu did the last goal just minutes away from the final whistle. More than enough for the Canadians to take their first triumph in the tournament, and the lead, for now, in Group B. Here, check out the goals and highlights from this match.
