Cuba makes history in the Concacaf Nations League

The Cuban soccer team just made history in the Concacaf Nations League. The islanders beat Suriname 1-0, scoring their first goal and earning their first win since promotion to League A of the Nations League.

In the 21st minute, the historic goal came from Willian Pozo, who, after a great play by Luis Paradela Pozo, delivered a great serve so that he fired a powerful shot that slipped into the Suriname goal, and in this way the Suriname players The island got the three points.

Still, it wasn’t a great game for Cuba, who struggled, especially in the second half. However, goalkeeper Raiko Arozarena, brother of the Tampa Bay Rays star, managed to keep a clean sheet with great saves.

The Copa América is not far-fetched

Surprisingly and in the absence of the duel between Jamaica and Haiti, Cuba is in first place in its sector with four units after scoring a historic point against Haiti. The schedule sees them avoiding Jamaica, although there will be a doubleheader against Honduras where they will play for their ticket to the next round.

Cuba is not one of the favorites for the next Copa América among Concacaf guests, but the islanders can dream thanks to a favorable calendar, as the “Katrachos” are not having their best time after the defeat in Kingston against Jamaica.

A place in the top two of the group could give Cuba the opportunity to secure a ticket to the Copa América, where it would potentially face one of the region’s giants: Mexico, the United States or Canada, although a clash against Costa Rica, who lost 4-1 to the United Arab Emirates today, can make them dream.

“We will take it game by game. “At the moment we have achieved four points and are not neglecting the main goal of staying in League A. “We hope that we can qualify for the next round and fight for a place in the Copa América,” said Yulienis Castillo, Cuba coach.
