I think Canada can win the losers tournament if they get their crap together. It actually might be easier than getting 4th in the Hex.

I find it amusing the 5th and 6th in the Hex is SOL.

That's my point. How are teams supposed to develop players and whatnot when every friendly becomes a "must-win" game? It ruins the spirit of friendlies.

Good point. Really shows how bad of an idea this system is.

Questionable system or not, the CSA has bothered to organize exactly one friendly in the past 20 months, vs New Zealand, 2 months after Herdman got hired.
