Default 'Office' set to explode with Gold Cup novelty

History will unfold inside Kingston's National Stadium this evening with a double-header on Match Day Three of the 2019 edition of the Concacaf Gold Cup Tournament.

The Group C fixture gets under way at 6:00 pm when El Salvador oppose Curacao, and two hours later Jamaica entertain the group's top seed, Honduras.

Today's event will mark the first time the regional flagship event will be hosted in the Caribbean, and only the second time outside of North America, as Costa Rica was the venue of Match Day Two yesterday with a Group B double-header involving Haiti vs Bermuda in the first game, and hosts Costa Rica against Nicaragua in the second game.

The competition kicked off on Saturday with Canada defeating Martinique 4-0 in the opening game, and Mexico blanking Cuba 7-0 in the second.

Jamaica's Reggae Boyz progressed all the way to the championship match on each of the last two editions of the prestigious competition. In 2015, under the guidance of Winfried Schaefer, they edged out the hosts United States 2-1 to book a date with Mexico, before losing 1-3 in Philadelphia.

Two years later they edged an under-strength Mexico side 1-0 on Kemar Lawrence's killer free kick to advance to their second-straight championship match in California, only to lose 1-2 to the hosts.

Now a targeted team, Theodore Whitmore and his technical staff would like to go one better, but should be fully cognisant of the old proverb, which says, “there's many a slip twixt the cup and lip.”

And he is satisfied with the team's progess thus far.
