Canada national Under-20 men's team coach Bob Gale is lamenting yesterday's 3-2 loss to El Salvador, telling The Gleaner his team has made it very difficult for themselves to advance with two rounds of matches left in Group B of the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship.

"Now we made it difficult for ourselves with this loss," said Gale.

He was responding questions in the post match interview, after watching El Salvador snatch a dramatic late winner from midfielder Romilio Hernandez at the Montego Bay Sports Complex to deny the Canadians a share of the points.

Hernandez responded quickest to a snap save from Canada goal keeper Nolan Wirth, who parried a shot a point black range, only for Hernandez to hit it past the diving keeper to make the score 3-2 at the final whistle.

The win moves them up to five points after three matches. Canada meanwhile, have three points from their lone win so far over Haiti.
