Cuba debuts with a defeat against Guadeloupe in the CONCACAF Nations League

The locals opened the account in the 15th minute, when Cuban goalkeeper Nelson Johnston made a “rude” mistake when receiving a pass from a teammate, which Gregory Gendrey took advantage of to finish off the ball at an empty goal, according to the review of the party published by the specialized site Hit.

Despite the early disadvantage, those led by Pablo Elier Sánchez generated clear chances to balance the score, including two shots that crashed into the rival’s goalposts, signed by Luis Javier Paradela and the captain Onel Hernandezwho currently plays for Birmingham City, in the English second division.

Parity came in the 74th minute, when Maykel Reyes, from Pinar del Río, who had not started the duel as a starter, beat the rival goalkeeper after a good combination with Onel. However, the aspirations of the Cuban army to draw at least one draw on the rival court vanished shortly before the final whistle, when Thierry Ambrose, a former English Manchester City player, mocked a couple of Cuban defenders before sentencing the game.

The result considerably narrowed the options of the Cuban team, whose main purpose Before the premiere, it was to dominate the group and ascend to the highest level of the League of Nations, and in the process qualify for the next CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The defeat now forces us not to fail in the matches that lie ahead, the closest set for day five against Barbados at the Antonio Maceo stadium, in the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba, a match that will mark the team’s debut in that facility after having laid an artificial turf and receive authorization from FIFA to host international matches.
