2014 Caribbean Cup: The champion faces its challengers

The Cuban football team will begin defending its title in the 2014 Caribbean Cup against French Guiana, Curacao and Trinidad and Tobago in Group A of the competition being hosted in Jamaica between November 10 and 17.

The team coached by Walter Benitez will kick off with a match against French Guiana on Wednesday 11 in the Montego Bay Sports Complex, which will see matches from Group B with Antigua and Barbuda, Haiti, Martinique and the host the day before, according to the programme released on Monday.

The top two teams from each group will not only qualify for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, but will also play in the semifinals of the tournament which offers direct qualification for the champion to the Copa América Centenario which will take place in the U.S. in 2016, featuring 10 South American teams and 6 from CONCACAF.

Two years ago, Cuba became champion of the Caribbean tournament for the first time in its history, with a win of 1-0 against the Trinidadian team, allowing the team to bypass the qualifying stages and compete directly in the final stage of the tournament this time round in Jamaica.
