[GOLD CUP] Playing without five players, who have been suspended by the Mexican soccer federation (FMF) after they failed a drug test taken on May 21, Mexico
went out and beat Cuba, 5-0, for its second win in two games at the Gold Cup.
Sinha, Francisco Rodriguez, Edgar Duenas, Christian Bermudez and Guillermo Ochoa are the five players who tested positive for taking the banned substance "Clembuterol."
Hector Gonzalez, the FMF's director of national teams, blamed the doping results on tainted meat at Mexico's High Performance Center where the team prepared for the Gold Cup.
Rodriguez and Ochoa started in the 5-0 win over El Salvador on Sunday.
The five players are headed to UCLA for more tests. Mexico has appealed to Concacaf to let it replace the five players.
Javier Hernandez had two goals for Mexico against Cuba to give him five goals in two games.
