7. GOLD CUP: Caribbean field is completed
Trinidad & Tobago, Guadeloupe and Cuba joined Haiti, which had qualified earlier in the week, as the Caribbean's four entrants in the 2007 Gold Cup.
They qualified by securing the top two
spots in the two groups at the Digicel Caribbean Cup.
Host T&T won the Sedley Joseph Group with a 3-1 win over Haiti on Wednesday. Gary Glasgow scored
twice and Kerwin Jemmott added another goal for the Soca Warriors, who had clinched a berth when Martinique edged Barbados, 3-2, in the other group game.
Guadeloupe earned the top spot in the Bobby Sookram Group and qualified for the Gold Cup for the first time with a 1-0 win over St. Vincent & Grenadines, which featured MLS veteran Ezra Hendrickson. Dominique Mocka scored the only goal for Guadeloupe in the 13th minute. The French department features
former French national team star Jocelyn Angloma.
Cuba will return to the Gold Cup for the fifth time after holding Guyana to a 0-0 tie in Thursday's other game. Cuba finished second
ahead of the Guyanese on goal difference.
Play continues in the Digicel Cup with the semifinals Saturday at Hasely Crawford Stadium.
