Gold Cup: Mexico vs Guadeloupe

In CONCACAF Gold Cup, Football on July 11, 2009 at 17:09

By Joe,


Both Mexico and Guadeloupe looks likely to make it to the quarterfinals. Mexico needs to avoid a defeat to Guadeloupe to guarantee a place in the knockout stages. This match will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale and both teams will travel to Arizona for Sunday’s final game in Group C.

Mexico have not been in headlines for the right reasons recently. Their recent 1-1 draw with Panama did not go unnoticed with many people in the football world.  It was so severe that the CONCACAF disciplinary committee is currently reviewing Mexico’s behavior against Pamana at last Thursday’s game because a fight broke out in the 80th minute which involved players and coaches from both the Mexican side and Panama side. Coach Javier Aguirre will face suspension against Gaudeloupe as he was red carded due to kicking Panama’s Ricardo Phillips and refused to leave the pitch delaying the game for 12 minutes. Mexico will be without Luis Noriega due to suspension.

The small island in the Caribbean that makes up Guadeloupe is surprisingly not recognized by FIFA. This is because Guadeloupe is a part of the French Territory where the players are eligible to play for the “Les Bleus”. Therefore, Guadeloupe treats the Gold Cup as their World Cup. FIFA mightl be taking notice of Guadeloupe because they currently top the table of Group C. They have already beaten both Nicaragua 2-0 and Panama 2-1.  Coach Roger Salnot will want to prove that their Gold Cup run is no fluke and that they could make sure by beating Mexico.

Mexico has not been the powerhouse team that we once known them for but they will do anything to get the point to guarantee them in making the quarterfinals. Guadeloupe have been one of the surprising teams in the tournament. They followed the likes of Canada and USA to be one of the first teams to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup. A draw might just suit both teams and mybet is offering 3.65 for a draw.
