Make that four games, one goal and no wins for the Canadian men's national soccer team in 2013.

Canada lost its second straight friendly in Doha, Qatar, falling to Belarus 2-0 Monday after being edged by Japan 2-1 last week.

“It was frustrating,” said interim head coach Tony Fonseca. “We lost 2-0 and that doesn't tell the story of the game.”

Vitali Radzionau headed a Belarus free kick past Canadian keeper Tomer Chencinski in the 29th minute, while Uladzimir Khavaschynski sealed the win with a header in the 88th.

Canada had a number of scoring chances in the game, including Marcel De Jong's free kick which sailed just over the crossbar in the first half.

Both teams received multiple yellow cards throughout the match, while Belarus head coach Georgy Kondratiev was ejected early in the second half.

The Canadian team does not play again until the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July.
