[CARIBBEAN CUP] Cuba won the Caribbean Cup with a 1-0 overtime victory over Trinidad & Tobago on Sunday, and they will be joined by Haiti and Martinique in next year's Gold Cup. Jamaica the two-time defending champion and lone Caribbean team in the 2013 Hexagonal, did not qualify after finishing with only one point in three games at the tournament played in Antigua & Barbuda.

Marcel Hernandez's goal in the 22nd minute of overtime gave the Cubans the win over Trinidad & Tobago, winner of eight Caribbean titles.

The closest T&T came to scoring was when the Vancouver Whitecaps' Carlyle Mitchell hit the post in the sixth minute.

Jamaica finished last in Group B and was knocked out of the tournament with a 1-0 loss to Cuba on Wednesday. The Reggae Boyz had also lost to French Guyana, 2-1, and tied Martinique, 0-0.

The Reggae Boyz's last-place finish behind three inferior opponents is an embarrassment in the Eastern Caribbean.

Twelve teams qualifying for the Gold Cup. The host United States, defending champion Mexico and Canada qualify automatically. Five of the seven teams competing in January's Copa Centroamericana will complete the field.
