GLASGOW -- Canadas mens rugby sevens team arrived in Glasgow with its hopes pinned on a medal. Reggie Ragland Jersey . But the Canadians proved no match for a Scottish team that had the heart of the host country -- and the some-45,000 delirious screaming fans at Ibrox Stadium -- behind it. Canada dropped a 21-5 decision to Scotland on Saturday at the Commonwealth Games in a dramatic battle it needed to win to be in the mix for the medals. "It always is a factor if its your home team, isnt it?" coach Kieran Crowley said. "You always see that the home team in a tournament like this does massively well. "Massive disappointment. We came here with the objective to get a medal. Now we have to recover, obviously be very disappointed, but come morning, weve got to focus on finishing ninth now." Connor Braid scored the lone try for Canada, which had lost 39-0 to defending champion New Zealand in its opener then bounced back to run roughshod over Barbados 68-5, setting up the must-win game against the Scots. "Proud of all the guys," said an emotional John Moonlight, Canadas captain. "No matter what happens, that last game I think we put it out there. The score didnt go our way. A lot of things didnt go our way. "I guess we have to wait four years for another chance. It hurts. You dont forget stuff like this and (Sunday) were going to come out with three wins, 100 per cent." Canada, which can finish no better than ninth, will play Trinidad and Tobago in the bowl quarter-final Sunday. Lee Jones, Richie Vernon and Mark Bennett scored for Scotland in front of a raucous crowd at Ibrox Stadium -- normally home to Rangers F.C. New Zealand had already clinched top spot in Pool A -- arguably the toughest pool in the tournament with three of the worlds core teams in Canada, the Scots and themselves -- with their victory over Canada and a 17-14 win over Scotland. The Canadians knew they were in for a stiff test against the Scots in the rowdy jam-packed Ibrox Stadium. The noise was deafening when the two teams walked onto the pitch to ACDCs "Thunderstruck." They clapped and stomped their feet and broke into spontaneous chants of "Scot-land!" They booed when a call went Canadas way. "Its tough but its cool, its something you can thrive off of for sure," Braid said of the crowd. "We beat them at home in Glasgow in May, and that was a really good feeling so we were just hunting for that the whole way through. "It came down to a couple missed tackles, but the boys really put it out there against a really strong Scottish team." Canada and Scotland are familiar foes, the Canadians edging the Scots in the semifinals of the IRB World Sevens World Series stop in Glasgow earlier this season. Canada went on to make history by reaching the final for the first time, only to be trounced 54-7 by New Zealand. Still, the Canadians finished a best-ever sixth on the series, while Scotland was 12th. Trailing 7-0 Saturday, Braid muscled his way across the try line with 1:14 left in the first. But a minute later Vernon scored on a long run down the middle, and Scotland had Canada pinned in its own half for most of the rest of the game. "There was still plenty of time left," Braid said of the halftime score. "Weve come back from bigger deficits before so I dont think we were too worried. But time was just against us. They were pretty good at the breakdown again. Our tackling percentage was a lot better, but still, individual tackles needs to improve." Canada took the field as the sun was setting after an eight-hour break between games -- something the team wasnt pleased about. Crowley said the team "went through the channels to put complaints in about it," to no avail. The Canadians arrived at Ibrox shortly after 7 a.m. to begin warming up for New Zealand and remained there all day, napping on mattresses and playing board games -- Settlers of Catan was the game of choice -- in a huge tent set up behind the stadium. They werent using the long day as an excuse though. "(Scotland) had to play two other games in the same time period that we were resting, so its tit-for-tat really," Braid said. "It was interesting. The boys got a good nap in, and thats just the way it happens. Sometimes you play at 8 (a.m.) and youre up at 5:30 in the morning. Sometimes you play at 9:30 at night with an eight-hour gap. The show must go on." In Canadas win against Barbados, John Moonlight, Mike Scholtz and Ciaran Hearn scored two tries apiece, while Braid, Nathan Hirayama, Harry Jones and Justin Douglas each scored one. Hirayama was good on all six conversions and Braid booted three. They were no match for the mighty New Zealand All-Blacks in their opener. The bigger and faster All-Blacks thoroughly dominated the Canadians, swatting away their tackle attempts like they were brushing away pesky flies. "Our own defence and penalties let us down," Braid said after the loss. "We had systems in place but we fell apart when it came time." Rugby sevens will make its Olympic debut in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, and if Saturdays action was any indication, the sport will be a massive hit. More than 185,000 sevens tickets have been sold, including a sellout on Sunday. The game, featuring seven players aside and two seven-minute halves, is played at a breakneck pace, keeping fans captivated. Saturday at Ibrox, they cheered almost as lustily for teams such as Barbados and Uganda as they did for their own Scots. After Barbados 59-0 rout by New Zealand, the crowd gave the losing team a standing ovation. They cheered on Uganda when that country scored three tries in the final two minutes to beat Sri Lanka. The Uganda players ran towards the crowd with delight after the game. New Zealand meanwhile, is gunning for its fifth gold medal in rugby sevens, having won the title all four times the sport has been in the Games. The All-Blacks will play Kenya -- second in Pool B -- in the quarter-finals. South Africa won Pool B and will face Scotland in the quarters. Pool C winner Samoa faces England, and Australia, winners of Pool D, meet Wales. Dee Ford Jersey . Nothing pretty. But this is 1/4 World Cup. Usually plays out this way. Demetrius Harris Jersey . Now he has a complete game. Scherzer tossed a three-hitter in his 179th career start for his first complete game and Victor Martinez hit his 16th homer to lead the Detroit Tigers a 4-0 win over the Chicago White Sox. http://www.thechiefsshoponline.com/Youth-Marcus-Peters-Chiefs-Jersey/ .The 24-year-old quarterback spent four seasons at Northern Illinois and in 2013 was a finalist for the Heisman, which is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in U.Stuart Broad says England need to forget about Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amirs past and concentrate on his cricketing abilities. Englands series against Pakistan begins on Thursday at Lords, live on Sky Sports 2, and Amir is set to make a high-profile return to the Test scene, at the ground where he became embroiled in a spot-fixing scandal in 2010.The 24-year-old was one of the hottest properties in world cricket at the time and is now playing again after serving his suspension. And his performance in the tour opener against Somerset last week suggested he could be a real threat to England this summer.Broad said: It is a huge story, back for his first Test at Lords since the controversy six years ago, a massive story. But, as a team, it is a dangerous place to get waylaid by that, because we could find ourselves in a lot of trouble.Having seen the way Amir has bowled at Taunton, we need to get in the right frame of mind, because he can do us some damage.Lets start looking at him as a cricketer and a bowler, and how we can negate that. England without Anderson How have England fared without their senior strike bowler I think what will help the team move on is that there is only me, Alastair Cook and Steve Finn who played in that Test. It is a very new team.England will be without Broads regular new-ball partner James Anderson for Lords, meaning Jake Ball or Toby Roland-Jones will be given a debut. Stuart Broad will lead the England bowling attack against Pakistan at Lords this week Broad memorably bowled England to an Ashes win at Trent Bridge when Anderson was absent last year, and again impressed when England were without the Lancashire man in Durban last Christmas but still managed to secure a victory over South Africa.And Broad said: I have played 90-odd Test matches, and I can only think of maybe five or six without Jimmy. Kaushal Silva and Sri Lanka drew with Englaand at Lords last month You are stepping into the unknown, but that can give you a bit extra. Patrick Mahomes II Jersey. Trent Bridge went well, Durban went well. I hope it will go the same here.Broads chief concern is the Lords pitch, which has not tended to offer much help to pace bowlers of late.I think our biggest challenge is going to be this wicket, because you look at all the Middlesex scores and they are all bore draws - 500 plays 500, said the 30-year-old. Mohammad Amir says it is a miracle he will soon be back playing Test cricket at Lords and he wants to make the fans proud I dont think wickets should seam around, I just think they have got to bounce. If you cant get a bloke caught-behind or caught in the slips, it takes out 60 per cent of dismissals.The biggest test as a bowling unit will be trying to do what no other team has done this year, and thats win a game taking 20 wickets at Lords.It proved to be a big challenge when we had Jimmy in the side four weeks ago [for a rain-ruined draw with Sri Lanka], so it will be an even bigger challenge this week.See how England cope without Anderson - and Mohammad Amirs likely return to Test cricket with Pakistan - by watching the first Test at Lords, from 10am, Thursday, Sky Sports 2.
