Moments after his national team finished off a goal-less

the epicenter of the gathered media’s attention.

And, despite the general consensus that Canada could have

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts — The Canadian national team will take little consolation from its 0-0 draw with St. Kitts and Nevis on Friday night knowing that they’re one step closer to qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

That said, concerns will be raised about the side’s inability to put the ball in the net. For the second time in as many games, the Canadians slumped to a scoreless draw against lower-ranked opposition.
