[GOLD CUP: Group B] Trinidad & Tobago and El Salvador joined Honduras in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup from Group B with wins on Monday in Houston. Rodolfo Zelaya, arguably the Gold Cup's most exciting player, scored his seventh goal in his last six Gold Cup matches to lead El Salvador to a 1-0 win over Haiti, while Trinidad & Tobago eliminated Haiti with a 2-0 victory over Honduras in a must-win game.

Zelaya, who had two goals in El Salvador's 2-2 tie with Trinidad & Tobago to open the tournament, hit the post with an empty net in front of him and then hit the post again on a free kick from inside the Salvadoran half with Haiti goalie Frandy Montrevil off his line.

Zelaya looked to be snake-bitten when his penalty kick was saved by Montrevil in the 76th minute but Zelaya put away the rebound.

Stoke City's Kenwyne Jones had a goal and an assist in Trinidad & Tobago's win over Honduras, which sent out a weakened team with first place in the group already secure and then lost defender Jose Velasquez to a red card in the first half.

Jones scored on a penalty kick in the 47th minute after Orlin Peralta was called for a foul in the penalty area on Cornell Glenn. Jones then slotted Orlando City's Kevin Molino a ball he placed inside the far post.

    It appears to me that if Cuba & Belize were to tie, the #2 3rd place team would be Martinique, and they would advance based upon Gold Cup rules. However, it seems Haiti would have a better record, same number of points but a better goal differential, yet would not advance because they're a 4th place team. I realize the PR/hype advantage of saying the "2 best 3rd place teams with the best records" will join the top 2 teams in the knock-out stage. Nonetheless, if a 4th place team has a better record than one of those 3rd place advancers, it bothers me...and I'm sure it would bother the team being left behind.
