The doubleheader begins at 4:30 pm EST, when Trinidad & Tobago face Panama.  Trinidad & Tobago enter this clash as the 64th ranked nation in the current FIFA/Coca-Cola Rankings, having finished group play as the winner of Group B.  The 62nd ranked Panama, who advanced placing third in Group A, will have their hands full attempting to quell the in form Soca Warriors.

Captain Kenwyne Jones who plays his club football for Cardiff City leads the attack for Trinidad & Tobago.  The forward has found the back of the net twice this tournament, with international totals of 75 appearances and 19 goals.  Panama also has weapons on their frontline.  Captain Blas Perez and fellow forward Luis Tejada have scored a combined total of 77 goals in their international careers.

The nightcap of the New York leg of the Gold Cup Quarterfinal kicks off 7:30 pm EST with Mexico and Costa Rica wrapping up Sunday’s play.  Mexico, ranked 40th, will take the pitch against World Cup 2014 darlings Costa Rica.  The Costa Ricans who rank 41st in the world advanced to the knockout stage without recording a single victory.  They will face a Mexican side that thrashed Cuba 6-0 in their tournament-opening match.  This fixture maybe one of the most intriguing of the weekend.

El Tri began the Gold Cup in flying form, with Oribe Peralta recording the only hat trick of group play.  Joining Peralta will be Carlos Vela and Giovani dos Santos, who recently completed a transfer to the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.  This forward combination has helped Mexico lead the tournament in team scoring (10) and team shots on goal (62).

Costa Rica have yet to show fans the team’s full potential, managing only 3 goals through the group stage.  Captain Bryan Ruiz and midfield talisman Celso Borges must perform when they square off with Mexico.  Goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado Brown has the stage set for a monster performance, facing an El Tri side that have proven they can pepper opponents with shots from all angles.

The winners of Sunday’s matches will face each other on July 22nd.  The venue for this and the other Semifinal match will be the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA.  Tickets are already available on the secondary market, at an average of $148.63, with this price subject to change based upon which nations emerge victorious this weekend.
