Canada’s U23 mens soccer had to settled for a 0-0 draw with Haiti in the second game of Concacaf Tokyo Olympics qualifying in Zapopan, Mexico Monday.

While both teams had chances to score, it was the goalkeepers who came out on top. Both Alan Jérôme (Haiti) and James Pantemis (Canada) made important saves to help earn their teams’ a point.

“In the first half we were able to control the tempo of the game and we created some good opportunities,” said Canada coach Mauro Biello after the match. “We didn’t take our chances in that first half. In the second half we got a little bit too loose and in different moments they caught us in transition. We expected that it would be tough. But today we just didn’t have that in the final third.”

Canada beat El Salvador in its first match Friday. And Canada next play Honduras Thursday before with the hopes of securing a place in the semifinals. Check out photos from Canada’s match versus El Salvador below:
