Puerto Rico 0-3 Canada: Late goals provide heavy scoreline for Canucks in World Cup qualifying

Jonathan Daniel

Canada won its second straight World Cup qualifier, putting the Canucks on top of Group D of the second round of CONCACAF qualifying.

Two games into qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, Canada has six points and has scored seven goals. The latest win came in Puerto Rico, where the Canucks won 3-0.

The goals came late in the halves.

Iain Hume put Canada ahead just before the halftime break, smashing a low shot from near the penalty spot to give Stephen Hart's side the lead.

Substitutes Simeon Jackson and Tosaint Ricketts scored at the close of the second half to turn a nervy win into a solid one.

Canada next faces St. Lucia again, this time away, on Oct. 7.
