Cuba eliminated from Gold Cup

Atlanta: Caribbean Cup champions Cuba were eliminated from the CONCACAF Gold Cup Tournament with a 1-6 loss to Panama in a quarterfinal game.

Cuba opened the scoring in the 21st minute from Jose Ciprian but then conceded a goal through a penalty as Gabriel Torres was spot on in the 25th minute for Panama Saturday night.

Panama added a second goal through Torres before the interval.

The Cubans lost their discipline in defence after Ariel Martinez was red carded for a high tackle in the 58th minute.

Panama capitalised on the situation and Carlos Rodriguez (68th), Blas Perez (78th, 87th) and substitute Jairo Jimenez (84th) completed the rout of the Cubans.
