The football match between French Guiana 2-4 Canada. Two goals in first-half from Jakovic and Arfield, who both netted at the senior international level first time, appeared to have Canada in control of the Group A clash at Red Bull Arena stadium.
Team Canada made five changes to the starting side that beat Curacao in their most recent outing, including Cavallini a start up front.
In their first Gold Cup appearance and amid confusion over the eligibility of some of their squad, French Guiana left out former Chelsea attacker F. Malouda.
Canada made an entertaining win over French Guiana in the opening game of the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2017.
After a fantastic performance by team Canada at New Jersey City on Friday, the final result of the game is French Guiana 2-4 Canada.
