HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 20 (acn) Cuban soccer team is already in Panama, where they will play today a friendly match against the host squad at Rommel Fernandez Stadium as training for the upcoming Caribbean Cup.

As appreciated in the past performances of the team, coach Walter Benitez could opt for the goalie Diosvelis Guerra, along with the defenders Jorge Luis Corrales, Renay Malblanche, Yasmani López and Yenier Rosabal.

The midfielders would be the veteran Yenier Márquez, Alberto Gómez, Ariel Martinez, Tomás Cruz and Yanniel Martínez, while Yoandir Puga, last season's leading scorer, would serve as forward.
