Guadeloupe earns tie in Gold Cup debut; De Guzman leads Canada past Costa Rica
by Paul Kennedy, June 7th, 2007 7AM

TAGS:  gold cup


Playing its first game ever in the Gold Cup, Guadeloupe earned a 1-1 tie against reigning Caribbean champion Haiti on the opening day of play in Group A.

In the first game at Miami's Orange Bowl, Julian De Guzman of Spanish club Deportivo Corun scored twice in the second half to give Canada a 2-1 win over Costa Rica.

Cedrick Fiston scored an acrobatic goal off a cross by Miguel Comminges in the 54th minute to earn Guadeloupe a tie.

Haiti, which had taken the lead on Mones Cherry's penalty kick in the 35th minute, had plenty of opportunities in the last 20 minutes but could not break down the Guadeloupe defense led by Manchester City defender David Sommeil.

In the opener, De Guzman scored a minute after Walter Centeno put Costa Rica ahead in the 57th minute. De Guzman's winning goal in the 73rd minute came after he beat two Tico defenders.
