Reports from Havana indicate that the Estadio Pedro Marrero did not suffer damage as a result of Hurricane Gustav, which means the World Cup qualifier remains on schedule. The storm caused substantial damage to the northwestern portion of the island, the worst in 50 years.
Meantime, the qualifier between Jamaica and Mexico on Sept. 6 in Kingston has been moved to the Estadio Azteca due to damage caused by the storm. The schedule change means that Mexico will play its first three qualifiers in the semifinal round at home. The match in Jamaica will now take place on Oct. 11.
