Gold Cup group play concluded today with two matches in Group C. First up, Panama dispatched Nicaragua with an easy 4-0 win. The victory put Panama on four points and eliminated Jamaica (3rd place in Group A) from the competition. Next up was Mexico versus Guadeloupe, where El Tri managed a 2-0 win to give themselves a first place finish in the group. Guadeloupe, despite the loss, went through in second place on six points.
Here's how things look as we progress to the knockout round:
Canada will meet Honduras in Philadelphia on Saturday before the U.S. takes the field against Panama in the nightcap. The next day Guadeloupe faces off against Costa Rica and Mexico plays Haiti at the new Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
What do you think about these matchups? Surprised to see any team in the quarterfinals? Sad that Mexico didn't slip up in the last game? Will you be at the games Saturday night in Philly?
