10:30 PM ET 01.31 | It took us a day to come to writing about the friendly against Canada given just how uninspiring it was in all facets. There is a silver lining in everything but during the game the only positive was the competition on Twitter to come up with the snarkiest or funniest "I just fell asleep" joke. So what can we take away? Gonzo and Besler did their job. Omar Gonzalez and Matt Besler were not tested much on the night, although the best scoring chances came from Dwayne De Rosario. One was a scramble play and the other was created when Justin Morrow pinched in too far. However, Besler and Gonzalez kept a good high line and narrowed the pitch. They both completed long passes but Besler struck the pass of the night with a 45-yard diagonal right on target. Besler also took home the game ball.
