Gold Cup: Costa Rica and Canada advance

2 comments about "Gold Cup: Costa Rica and Canada advance".
  1. William Wang, July 15, 2017 at 9:44 a.m.

    Can someone comment on why the guest teams (non-CONCACAF) are so lackluster this year? I remember a past gold cup featuring Colombia, and there have been other top-tier guest teams, I believe.

  2. Gus Keri, July 15, 2017 at 11:37 a.m.

    There are no guest teams in this Gold Cup. CONCACAF stopped inviting them since 2007. They are all CONCACAF members although, some of them are not FIFA members because they are part of the French team.
