USA eases restriction on Cuba
I wondered who Cuba dropped from the Gold Cup. After playing the grueling Caribbean Cup and finally makeing it. The goal of all Caribbean teams is to make the Gold Cup. Your team could represent your country in the regional tournament. Your team would be treated at all the ammenaties that it has to offer. So why did Cuba drop out after they qualified. Was the government very upset that players defected? Was the Cuban soccer federation leary of the team falling apart after defections? Was it both?
Were the poor soccer players used as pawns in a political despute between the US and Cuba.
Cuba had scored the most goals in the Caribbean Cup. They seem to have good offensive flow. IT is to bad they had to drop for what ever reason.
