Cuban football, is it facing a utopia?

The battered Cuban Soccer is left for the rest of year, two chances to redeem himself a bit after the disappointment of falling into the World Cup qualifier against Curacao, lack inclusion in the US pre-Olympic and America's Cup playoff for the centenary to Panama.

 

Both objectives, objectively and despite the redundancy, are almost impossible, in sports miracles happens very soon. Our senior team will face against Panama this great team that gave a good image in the last Gold Cup in round shocks and has options to advance sincerely.

 

But what I will deal in this comment is the pre-Olympic agreed to US from October 1 to 13 and where Cuba will play in Group A, along with Panama opponent the first day, United States rival 3 and then six will face Canada for Group B play Mexico, reigning Olympic champion, Honduras, Haiti and Costa Rica.

 

In the semifinals classify the first two of each key, and the champion and runner-up qualify directly for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and that squad that ranks third will have the right to play a playoff over two legs against Colombia.

 

You see the group of Cuba is very complicated, but the words of coach Raul Gonzalez Triana, your boys have a chance of qualifying for the Avileño Panama, and Canada are at the same level and the United States is an opponent who can beat, while it is recognizing that the lack of international exposure is still a deficit for the result sought.

 

The truth is in Cuba play little football while our rivals in all categories make in great leagues with quality the whole year. This team sub 23 is great and achieved results that generation qualified for the World U-20 Portugal was third in the Central American and I do not want to take away your right to the benefit of the doubt but I do not think they achieve the desired classification, mainly due lack of a practice game of level which have our players.

 

So we can not aim higher as with Gonzalez Triana as coaching or Carlo Ancelotti commanding the Cuban ship, do you think that ?
