Doneil Henry and Lucas Cavallini each scored goals as Canada beat the United States 2-0 Saturday night at Nashville, Tenn., for its first win over the Americans since 1992 in the CONCACAF men’s soccer Olympic qualifying tournament. The U.S. could have clinched a berth in Saturday’s semifinals in Kansas City, Kan. Those winners qualify for the London Games. Instead, they now must beat El Salvador, a 4-0 winner over Cuba, on Monday night to advance. The Americans came in 4-1-2 all-time against Canada in this tournament. The Canadians played a scoreless tie against El Salvador to open the Group A tournament. Henry headed the ball off a corner kick in the 58th minute, and Cavallini (No. 13 in photo) scored off a diving header in the 83rd minute for a 2-0 lead. – AP
