thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com rates the player performances from the 0-0 draw between Canada and the United States.

Here are the ratings from Canada versus United States:

United States:

Tim Howard-6.0: Made some key saves when Canada was building momentum. A typical Howard performance.

Edgar Castillo-4.5- Struggled a lot during the first half against De Rosario but regained some composure toward the final 30 minutes. Had one of the best attempts of the game early on as he forced a fingers save from Hirschfield.

Carlos Bocanegra-5.5: Largely quiet game for Bocanegra. Got beat a few times by Canada's forwards and missed a chance to score as his header from Torres' free kick went out of bounds. At times looked tired and was subbed in the 62nd minute.

Clarence Goodson-5.5: Didn't make mistakes but allowed Canada's forwards to have some breakaways late. Mostly solid for Goodson.

Steve Cherundolo-5.5: Quiet game from the Hannover 96 stalwart. Still, he was efficient in his passing and didn't make any mistakes.

Michael Bradley-5.5-Was limited by Klinsmann's decision to place him in front of the defense. While his short passes and tackling were solid, he wasn't able to contribute to the final third.

Jermaine Jones-6: Jones was active all over the pitch, making key interceptions and fighting to have offensive opportunities.

Jose Torres-5.0: Created some dangerous chances for the U.S. from his set pieces but was largely anonymous in his appearance as a winger. Would be better served as a central midfielder.

Landon Donovan-5.5: Didn't get much time on the ball and as a result, struggled to have much impact. However, he did have a nice sequence with Dempsey which created a scoring chance.

Clint Dempsey-6: Took a while to get going but had the best chances to score for the U.S..

Hercules Gomez-4.5: With the U.S. largely sticking to the long ball, Gomez was almost non existent in the first half. He might have had three touches the entire game.

Subs:

Oguchi Onyewu-5: Onyewu was better defensively than his previous performance against Brazil but didn't have much of an impact late.

Jozy Altidore-5:  Was able to get more of the ball than Gomez did earlier but didn't threaten much in the game.

Maurice Edu-6: Edu's marking and tackling allowed Bradley and Dempsey to focus more on offense.

Chris Wondolowski-4: Came on late and didn't have too much time to make an impact.

Michael Parkhust-4.5: Didn't make any mistakes but also didn't have a lot of time in the game.

Canada:

Lars Hirschfield-7.5: Literally saved the game for Canada, acrobatically punching away Edu's header in extra time to preserve a clean sheet. The goalkeeper stopped some crucial shots throughout the game.

Andrew Hainault-6: Forced from his normal position, Hainault had a solid performance, marking Donovan throughout the match.

Kevin McKenna-6: Was solid defensively and prevented Gomez from getting touches.

Ante Jazic-5: Was also solid but allowed the U.S. forwards to beat him at times.

David Edgar-5: Didn't make any mistakes and was largely decent throughout the match.

Julian De Guzman-5: Primarily focused on being Canada's fifth center back and wasn't able to contribute much offensively.

Nickolas Ledgerwood-6: Mysteriously ruled out a goal in the 32nd minute that would have given Canada the lead. Still, he didn't let that discourage him and put on a strong effort throughout the game.

Will Johnson-4.5: Was non-existent during the game but to his credit didn't make any glaring mistakes. 

Dwyane De Rosario-6: De Rosario was a one man offense for Canada for much of the game. He created the team's biggest chances and had some chances to score early as well.

Olivier Occean-5: Worked hard but never really tested the American defense.

Tossaint Ricketts-5: His pace definitely tired the U.S. defense but he didn't threaten Howard much.

Subs:

Simeon Jackson-5: Jackson changed the dynamic of Canada's offense which was over reliant on De Rosario. However, he couldn't finish two chances that most solid strikers finish.

Pacheco, Iain Hume, Samuel Piette,Michael Klukowski-4: The four players came on late for Canada but couldn't make much of an impact.

Man of the match: Hirschfield, Canada.
