USA vs. Cuba: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy It has been a strange Gold Cup.  All three of the pre-tournament favorites: the United States, Mexico and World Cup quarterfinalist Costa Rica, could lodge complaints about their form and none appear to be runaway favorites heading into this weekend’s quarterfinals.
