n.— «When Canada lined up in a 41212, a tactic that sacrifices width for a lot of midfield triangles to pass the ball around and create scoring opportunities, I was hopeful of a more possession orientated style. Alas, the two central midfielders were overwhelmed and Canada was quickly back to aimless hoofball. I hate hoofball but if you are going to play that way at least put on a legitimate target striker and look for second phase balls.» —“Way to go Canada” by Candu Sportsnet.ca Nov. 17, 2004.
