HAVANA, Cuba, Jun 19 (acn) Cuba will have today an almost decisive match against Martinique, for the sake of continuing alive in Group A of the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which for the first time in history is hosted by three nations.

At the Broncos stadium, in Mile High, Denver, the team coached by Raul Mederos has to win, or at least draw against Martinique, because another defeat would leave them without possibilities of advancing to quarterfinals.
This is because in their debut, they were scandalously thrashed 7-0 by Mexico, and after this match, they only have to face Canada, on June 23.
If adding the game against Mexicans to the four friendly matches they played as training for the Gold Cup, the Cuban team has barely scored one goal in 450 minutes, something inadmissible in modern soccer.
Today, Coach Mederos should order a close guard on the striker Kevin Parsemain, Martinique´s all-time leading scorer, as well as Kévin Fortuné, forward who plays in the French club AC Troyes.
Last Sunday, in their debut, Martinique lost 0-4 to Canada.
In addition to Mexico and Canada (Group A), the leaders of the other pools are Costa Rica and Haiti (B), Jamaica and El Salvador (C) and USA and Panama (D), all with one win and no loss.
The top two teams from each group will qualify for the quarter-finals.
