Cyle Larin, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, has enjoyed a successful first season for Orlando City, with six goals in his first 13 games as a professional. His first CONCACAF Gold Cup, however, is off to a rocky start.

With a chance to break a scoreless deadlock in the 36th minute, Larin received the ball on a breakaway, rounded El Salvador goalkeeper Derby Carrillo and faced a wide open goal at StubHub Center, only to fire his shot well over the bar when a simple roller would have sufficed.

Larin collapsed to the ground in disappointment after the miss, one that could have given Canada the edge in Group B after Costa Rica and Jamaica played to a 2-2 draw in the game that preceded Canada-El Salvador.
