The Canucks started the game well and took the lead via Fraser Aird after eleven minutes. The Falkirk defender doing well to be on the end of Maxim Tissot's left-wing cross.

Norwich City attacker Steven Naismith levelled the score ten-minutes before the break. The former Kilmarnock, Rangers and Everton midfielder was on hand to deflect a shot past a helpless Simon Thomas in the Canada goal.

Saddlers striker Jackson, who has now earned 49 international caps, had a few chances in front of goal but was unable to score before being substituted after seventy-six minutes with FC Edmonton forward Ben Fisk taking his place in the side.

There were no further goals as the game ended all-square.
