Group D at the 2023 Gold Cup should be a relatively easy one for Canada, but Cuba and Guatemala do have enough talent to trouble the North American giants in this competition. Plus, we’ve already seen some interesting results in this Gold Cup, which means Canada could be in for a stiff challenge in this pairing. Here’s a look at the standings, results and schedule for Group D.

Group D Schedule and Results

Tuesday, June 27

Canada 2, Guadeloupe 2

It looked like Guadeloupe was set to pull off the biggest upset of the Gold Cup so far when Thierry Ambrose found the back of the net in the 23rd minute, but Canada fought back in the second half and eventually got an equalizer. Lucas Cavallini scored in the 49th minute for Canada, and then an own goal in the 70th minute looked like it would be the game winner. However, Jacen Russell-Rowe gifted Guadeloupe an own goal in stoppage time to split the points in the Group D opener.

Guatemala 1, Cuba 0

Darwin Lom missed a penalty in stoppage time in the first half, but made up for it for Guatemala by scoring a goal early in the second half. It was a dominant showing from the Central American side, outshooting Cuba 17-6 and placing seven shots on target to Cuba’s one.

Guadeloupe 4, Cuba 1

It’s been an awesome group stage so far for Guadeloupe, who have exceeded all expectations and are now one match away from qualifying for the knockout round. This was a dominant offensive showing over Cuba, with Matthias Phaeton scoring twice for Guadeloupe in the first half of the win.

Guatemala 0, Canada 0

There was some action late on both sides, but neither team found much traction offensively outside of a few attacks. The draw helps Guatemala more than Canada, although both sides have still have work to do to qualify for the knockout round. Canada must get a win and hope for some help, while Guatemala can qualify with a win or draw over Guadeloupe.

Tuesday, July 4

Guatemala 3, Guadeloupe 2

Canada 4, Cuba 2

It looked like Guadeloupe were going to get to the knockout round after taking a 2-1 lead in the second half on Ange-Freddy Plumain’s penalty kick. Guadeloupe actually doubled up Guatemala’s total shots, but the Central American side struck twice in a span of five minutes to grab a 3-2 lead and top the group. Canada come in second after dominating Cuba, and now have a date with the USMNT in the quarterfinal round.
