Jamaica is doing surprisingly well in this tournament. After participating in the Copa America everyones expectations were very low. In the group stage Jamaica showed their qualities and why they qualified for the knock out stage. Both Haiti and Jamaica won't play a big role in the knock out stage.
Team USA against Cuba will be a sentimental match. The United States is on it's way to reach the final and will probably be thinking about winning the title. The Cuban football team showed in the group stage how weak their defense is. We expect team USA to overrun Cuba and can focus on the semi finals.
Mexico showed against Cuba why they are one of the candidates in winning the Gold Cup tournament. Within 45 minutes the Mexicans were leading 4-0 already. Guatemala didn't manage to set a good result against Trinidad & Tobago by losing 3-1. A victory of dos Santos & co. would mean qualification for the knock out stage.
In group B all teams are still waiting for their first victory. Costa Rica tied against Jamaica while El Salvador managed to keep Canada on a 0-0 draw. The Costa Rican team will be eager to win their first 3 points in the Gold Cup. Joel Campbell was not able to show his qualities against Jamaica. It's time for him to show why Arsenal signed him last season.
With a 2-1 victory over Honduras the United States is close to qualifying for the knock out stage in the Gold Cup. Clint Dempsey showed why he can be considered as one of the key players in team USA. For Haiti a lost against USA would probably mean the end of their participation in the Gold Cup.
Winning the Gold Cup 6 times Mexico is this edition again one of the title candidates. The opening game against Cuba will end up in a flawless victory. Strikers dos Santos and Carlos Vela will get through the Cuban defense easily.
