Sometimes victories get the team into the mood factor and sometimes to put their feet on the ground. The Cuban national football team achieved a 1-0 victory over its counterpart from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines on Tuesday afternoon, Perhaps to quell the euphoria that erupted after the defeat six days ago against the British Virgin Islands.
The match, which was held at the Kirani James Stadium in Granada, saw the Antilles get three points, mathematically and objectively, in the World Cup race to Qatar 2022, negligible. However, the opposite result and even a tie would have triggered Tricolor alarms.
The Caribbean Lions scored a goal Michael Reyes very soon after entering the field, taking advantage of a superb pass from young Deeron Reyes, who once again left flashes of greatness on the pitch and almost fell the royal gates for the upcoming matches.
In that sense, Pablo Eller Sanchez has a decision to make. one of several. After the positive conclusion of the World Cup, after the first defeats against Guatemala and Curaçao, The confrontation against San Vicente was supposed to be a preparation with a vision embedded in the pre-Gold Cup phase and in the Gold Cup itself.
However, The Cuban team was accused of a certain lack of attack intensity, with a heavy game at times misusing the flanks And I miss more activity indoors.
However, the entry of other faces in the second half changed that trend in a certain way, adding to it not being the best afternoon for the team’s top men, Say Luis Javier Paradella and O’Neil Hernandez.
Anyway, other than these problems, they were definitely discovered by the coaching staff, The national team smiled again and it’s fair to say that they didn’t suffer in defense and obstructed every competitive attempt to reach their goal.. San Vicente was barely able to get past their midfield on a few occasions during the 90-minute match.
Now the Cubans will return to Guatemala in an intense month of Gold Cup preparationsAn event that will be the true thermometer for a rising team that wants to attract the attention of the CONCACAF elite.
