The Gold Cup is just around the corner and we will begin to enjoy the CONCACAF teams playing a tournament in which many teams use all their weapons to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers. This time, we have Group C, which is made up of Costa Rica, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, and Suriname. Costa Rica, the clear favorite to be in the first place of the group, will begin its journey in this Gold Cup facing the Guadeloupe team.
The game between Costa Rica and Guadeloupe will be played this Monday, June 12, 2021, at Orlando City Stadium, in the city of Orlando, Florida.
How do Costa Rica and Guadeloupe arrive?
The Guadeloupe team reaches this Gold Cup after a surprise victory against the Guatemala team in what were the qualifiers for this tournament. Like many of the Caribbean teams, they have been inactive since 2019, which is why it is very surprising that a team that has not played for almost 2 years, defeats Guatemala in these qualifying rounds.
In this match, Guadeloupe managed to present an excellent game to Guatemala, they started overwhelming and at minute 6 they scored the goal. Similarly, Guatemala was not far behind and 11 minutes later tied the game. Then the game was a give and take until they reached penalties, where Guadeloupe took the victory 10-9.

On the other hand, we have the favorite of the group Costa Rica, who arrive at this Gold Cup thinking directly against which team from group B they will face. Yes, it sounds cruel to the other teams, but the level of the Costa Rican team is completely superior to that of the other teams.
In the same way, Costa Rica presents a worrying moment in its soccer news and that is that it does not know the victory in the last 6 games played, in which it has a balance of 2 draws and 4 defeats. Their last match was a tough defeat against the United States by a 0-4 win in a friendly match to prepare for this Gold Cup.
