  • Hello readers welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Gold Cup. This is Alex Labidou (@sportslab on twitter) giving you my insights of the first match of the doubleheader between Canada and Panama. This match has huge implications for all of the teams in the group. If Canada beats Panama and the U.S. loses its match against Guadeloupe, the Stars-and-Stripes would be eliminated from the competition.
