Gold Cup Match Previews
June 15 – The waiting is over. For the first time in 14 appearances in the Gold Cup, Costa Rica play a match on home soil when they meet Nicaragua at Estadio Nacional in both teams’ Group B opener Sunday.
June 14 – It may, to Costa Rican fans, be just a taster for the eagerly awaited second part of a double header featuring the joint hosts but to Haiti and Bermuda, Sunday’s opening Gold Cup fixture in San Jose will means absolutely everything when the pair open Group B and go head to head for the first time since 1992.

After all, Cuba can’t even get all their players into the US – Yordan Santa Cruz is still waiting for a visa that is unlikely to arrive in time – and their tournament kit hadn’t arrived either prior to their press conference Friday evening.
June 14 – The opening game of the Gold Cup at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena will see one giant land mass in North America confront a tiny island in the Caribbean. But it is unlikely to be a David vs Goliath encounter.
