A day after suffering a damaging loss to CONCACAF minnows Martinique, Canadian men’s national team interim head coach Colin Miller is telling his troops to dust themselves off in preparation for Thursday’s run-in with confederation giants Mexico in Seattle.

Canada currently sits alongside the Mexicans at the bottom of Group A following a 1-0 stoppage-time loss on Sunday in Pasadena, Calif., Canada’s first match of three Gold Cup group games.

“We have to be prepared for a Mexican team that will be, like ourselves, very, very disappointed with their (opening-game loss),” Miller said. “It’s not very often they lose. We have to be prepared for that.”

Mexico fell 2-1 in its Gold Cup opener to Panama, adding further to head coach Jose Manuel “Chepo” de la Torre’s misery.

El Tri continues to struggle in World Cup qualifying and failed to progress past the group stage at last month’s Confederations Cup.

“We have to regroup,” Miller said.
