El Salvador beats Curacao 2-0 in Gold Cup match
The Curacao national team played its second match in the Gold Cup tournament on July 13 in the Sports Authority Field in Denver. Team captain Cucu Martinahad already left the team to join the Everton team in preparation on the new season. Felitciano Zschusschen and Jeremy de Nooijer also flew back to Europe for the start of the competions.
Team El Salvador shattered Curacao's Gold Cup dreams by scoring in the 21st and 24rd minute of the game. Curacao was awarded a penalty in the 44th minute, which could have been a lucky break for the team. Regrettably Gevoro Nepomuceno kicked teh ball right into the arms of the sharply focussed keeper of the El Salvador team.
In the second half Curacao kept trying but El Salvador properly defended their winning position.
After the 0-0 draw between Mexico and Jamaica these teams share the top of the table in group C with 4 points each. El Salvador gathered 3 points with their win, and Curacao has zero points and has virtually no chance of reaching the quater finals.
TD Remko Bicentini team consisted of Rangelo Janga, Jarchinio Antonia, Elson Hooi and Gevaro Nepomucena, Dustley Mulder and Leandro Bacuna , Gillian Justiana, Darryl Lachman, Quentin Jakoba and Jurien Gaari and Eloy Room as goalkeeper.
