Mexico beats Curacao 2-0 to win CONCACAF Group C

17 Julio 2017

JAMAICA will tonight make changes to the team that won its opening Gold Cup game against Curacao on Sunday, hoping to counter regional kingpins Mexico in the feature Group C game at the Sport Authority in Denver, starting eight o'clock, Jamaica time.

Curacao are eliminated from advancing past the group stage after disappointing showings in their first two games. The point for each team keeps them level atop the group standing with Mexico having the edge on total goal scored to maintain first place.

Along with our usual preview and predictions, we once again have the privilege to invite Nathan Carr, who will provide us with his thoughts on Curacao. With the Reggae Boyz sitting far back, it wasn't that much of a surprise to see Mexico stumble to a 0-0 draw.

Playing without several stars and their head coach, El Tri leaned on emotion and determination to remain unbeaten in the 14th edition of the Gold Cup.

Here's that winning goal from Sepulveda. And in general, it's a very athletic team.

Curacao v Mexico is blocked in the following countries: Anguilla, Aruba, Barbados, Bermuda, Bahamas, Belize, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Kitts And Nevis, Cayman Islands, Saint Lucia, Martinique, Montserrat, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Suriname, El Salvador, Turks And Caicos Islands, Trinidad And Tobago, United States, Saint Vincent And Grenadines, Virgin Islands, British, Virgin Islands, U.S. Despite the conditions, the guys really can go out and do something positive against this Mexico team.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio is suspended for four more matches after bad behavior during the Confederations Cup third place game against Portugal.

Based on recent history, this should be an easy one to call.

Dig a little deeper, however, and the more this looks like a golden opportunity for the Canadians. "We will leave that up to the Federation". I'm tempted to say 4-2.

El Salvador took an early lead through Ruben Marroquin, which was cancelled out in the second half when Darren Mattocks converted a penalty for a Narcisco Orellana's handball in the box.
