The competition will determine the four CONCACAF representatives at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland and it will also determine the CONCACAF teams playing at the 2019 Pan American Games men's soccer tournament in Lima.
The Cuban squad, coached by Raul Gonzalez, who qualified Cuba for the 2013 World Cup in Turkey, will play in Group D, which also includes the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Antigua and Barbuda and Saint Marten, rivals in this order on November the 3rd. 5, 7 and 9, in that order.
