[USA-CUBA] The USA will look to wrap up a berth in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup with a win over Cuba Saturday in their Group C match at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah (TV: FOX, Univision, 3:30 pm ET). A win would tie a national team record for the longest winning streak at seven games.

The previous record was set in 2007 and included a 4-1 friendly win over China and and then six matches en route to the 2007 Gold Cup title.

Cuba is winless in its last 12 games at the Gold Cup dating back to 2003, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann wasn't taking anything for granted.

“In the first half against Costa Rica, [Cuba] showed really good qualities,” he said. “We are well aware of them and their strengths.”

The USA has won all six games against Cuba since 2008 by a margin of 25-2. One player who has feasted on Cuba is Landon Donovan, who has scored seven goals in four matches.

“In my opinion, it’s a better team than Belize,” he said. “We know that they need one point from this match at the minimum if they want to qualify for the quarterfinals and we’ll be very prepared for the match, just as with Belize.”

Belize-Cuba follows after the USA-Cuba at Rio Tinto Stadium.

July 13 in Sandy, Utah
