Canada recovered from going behind to secure a deserved draw against the USA in their World Cup qualifier in Nashville on Sunday.

Full time

Scorers: Aaronson 55′; Larin 62′

USA goalkeeper Matt Turner pulled off an important stop from a Cyle Larin attempt just before the quarter hour after Alphonso Davies had gotten on the end of a direct ball over the top.

The best chance of the opening half for the hosts came five minutes before the break when Christian Pulisic clipped a shot from close range off the upright.

After a bright start to the second half, Brenden Aaronson broke the deadlock for the Stars and Stripes.

Making the most of an excellent use of advantage by the referee for a foul on Pulisic, the RB Salzburg attacker put the finishing touch to an Antonee Robinson cross to cap off a flowing move.

But that lead would last only seven minutes as the Canucks struck back when Davies squared the ball for Larin to tap into an empty net.

The result leaves both sides on two points after two games in the Concacaf qualifying group.

Canada lie in third courtesy of their superior goal difference, while the USA are in fifth below Honduras.
