[GOLD CUP: Group C]Costa Rica struggled to put away Belize, getting only a spectacular own goal from the Jaguars' Dalton Elley early in the second half to win, 1-0, and clinch a berth in the Gold Cup quarterfinals. The match followed the USA-Cuba game and was played in a near-empty Rio Tinto Stadium.

Group C play concludes Tuesday in East Hartford, Conn. The USA will win the group with a win or tie against Costa Rica, which it will also meet in their next World Cup 2014 qualifier in September.

Belize and Cuba both remain alive despite opening with two losses. If El Salvador and Trinidad & Tobago don't win their Group B matches on Monday, the winner of the Belize-Cuba game -- if there is a winner -- will advance as the second third-place team.

Group C Results:
July 13 in Sandy, Utah
USA 4 (Donovan pen. 46+, Corona 57, Wondolowski 66, 85) Cuba 1 (Ciprian 36).
Costa Rica 1 (own goal 49) Belize 0.

July 9 in Portland, Ore.
Costa Rica 3 (Barrantes 51, 77, Arrieta 67) Cuba 0.
USA 6 (Wondolowski 12, 39, 43, Holden 58, Orozco-Fiscal 73, Donovan pen. 76) Belize 1 (Gaynair 42).

Group C Schedule:

July 16 in East Hartford, Conn.
Cuba vs. Belize, 5:30 p.m.
USA vs. Costa Rica, 8 p.m.

Group C Standings:

    I was at Rio Tinto stadium for the USA vs Cuba game. It was a terribly hot afternoon, and I could not sit through 2 games in that heat. I imagine that was the problem for most. Perhaps next time double-headers are scheduled they will be at a later time in the day during summer months. I fear that will reflect poorly on the great crowds we get at Rio Tinto -- bring the national team back again since they always win at Rio Tinto!

    This just in. We have Breaking News! A rare summer snowstorm has been forcast for Hartford Connecticut this Tuesday! There is speculation the US Soccer Federation was seen flying eight to ten C-17 Globemaster 3s over both Syracuse NY and Scranton PA actively "seeding" the clouds there to develop the storm over Hartford. More details on this story as they become available.
