Gold Cup 2015: USA beats Haiti 1-0, but not before scare

Everyone is wondering as to how USMNT will perform today.

2015 Gold Cup has failed to enthuse soccer fans even in North America where the match is being coorganized by the United States and Canada.

This apathy may be due to the fact that the people had too much of soccer in the last few months. The fact that this tournament is bereft of attraction of top soccer stars. gold cup 2015 soccer

There is no Messi or for that matter Neymar who will attract millions of fans pn the strenght of being part of a match.

In the meantim the United States men’s national team got their most difficult game for a couple of weeks out of the way in their CONCACAF Gold Cup opener, beating Honduras. The match should ideally have been an easy match but Honduras made their life miserable.

But they are expecting their match against Haiti on Friday should be a bit more straightforward. Nonethelesd Haiti have been solid in the last few Gold Cups, and drew against the United States back in 2009 — they would have won that game if not for a 92nd minute wondergoal by Stuart Holden. They didn’t advance past the group stage in 2013, but did record a win over Trinidad and Tobago.

Haiti may be able to give scare to anytime when things go in thiet life.

In their last game, Haiti gave Panama a very tough game and snagged a point with an 86th minute equalizer by Duckens Nazon. They won’t be expecting the same performance against the USMNT, and might even contemplate resting some players ahead of a must-win game against Honduras. It will be seen how US team performs today.
