The Canadian men's soccer team put a dramatic week behind them with a decisive 4-0 win over Curacao to open their CONCACAF Nations League campaign on Thursday.
The victory followed a week that saw the Canadian players miss two training sessions and refuse to play a friendly game against Panama in Vancouver due to an ongoing contract dispute.
Canada, ranked 38th in the world, didn't appear to have much rust to shake off on Thursday, however, pressuring No. 79 Curacao just two minutes into the game.
Alphonso Davies scored twice, including on a first-half penalty kick, while Steven Vitoria and Lucas Cavallini each added a goal.
It was a quiet night for Canadian goalkeeper Milan Borjan, who did not face a single on-target shot. Eloy Room made five saves for Curacao.
Canada continues its Nations League play on Monday when they take on No. 82 Honduras in San Pedro Sula.
