Canada spurn chance to open gap in World Cup group
(Reuters) - Canada missed the chance to take command of their 2014 World Cup qualifying group on Tuesday when they were held to a 0-0 draw by Honduras.
Canada, looking to reach their first World Cup since 1986, missed several golden chances to score in front of their home fans, Kevin McKenna's header coming closest to breaking the deadlock.
Midfielder Atiba Hutchinson was at the heart of Canada's offense in a physical first half that saw five yellow cards dished out.
Canada, who beat Cuba last week, have four points from two matches in Group C, while Honduras earned their first point. Panama are in second place with three points.
