Cuba: National Football Team to Skip Gold Cup

Categories: Latin America, Cuba, Sport

Even though it qualified, the Cuban national football team will not participate in the Gold Cup to be held in the United States in July [1] because of “technical and organizational” reasons according to the Association, writes Miguel G√≥mez of Mi Columna Deportiva [es]. However, one commenter notes that the reason may be that they are afraid that more players will defect during the tournament as it has happened in the past.
