Gold Cup Day 9

Gold Cup group play is over, but not without a couple more surprises. Cuba shocked Guatemala 1-0 behind a second half goal by Maikel Reyes. It was Cuba's first win of the tournament and miraculously sent them through to the quarterfinals despite getting outscored 8-1 in their three matches. Group C's other match saw Trinidad and Tobago go toe-to-toe with Mexico and play to a wild 4-4 draw that saw seven goals after the intermission and both sides score in stoppage team. Yohance Marshall's 94th minute equalizer clinched first place in Group C for T&T. With that, the quarterfinal match-ups are now set. In one bracket, the U.S. will take on Cuba while Haiti takes on Jamaica, and then on the other side Trinidad and Tobago faces off against Panama, while Costa Rica takes on Mexico. The quarterfinals start on Saturday.
