Gold Cup Quarterfinals, Day 2

Jaime Penedo saved Lester Peltier's penalty to give Panama a 6-5 shootout win over upstarts,  Trinidad and Tobago. The shootout went 9 rounds with Valentín Pimentel scoring what ended up being the winning penalty. In the nightcap, controversy spoiled a epic clash between Costa Rica and Mexico. A questionable, and that's putting it nicely, penalty call in stoppage time of extra time gifted Mexico a 1-0 when Andrés Guardado converted the spot kick. Mexico will now face off against Jamaica in the semis.
