Larin Continues Hot Streak With Canadian MNT
Thursday in Dominica, Orlando City striker Cyle Larin and his Canadian MNT defeated their hosts, 2-0, in a qualifier for the 2018 World Cup. Larin got in behind Dominica’s back line in the 5th minute for a one-on-one with the keeper and didn’t disappoint for the early lead. Then in the second half, Larin’s streaking run up the left wing and into the box drew a penalty kick, which put Canada up, 2-0. Canada will host Dominica in the second leg of their home-and-home on Tuesday, June 16th.
