Concacaf's press release

CONCACAF has been in constant communication with the Cuban Football Association regarding their travel to the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup Preliminary Round (Prelims).

Unfortunately, due to issues with their travel related to Covid-19 and their visas, and the required Covid-19 testing regimen, tonight's match against French Guiana will not take place.

Given the current public health situation and the ongoing need to comply with protocols, the health and safety of the participating teams cannot be compromised.

Guiana French: nothing to lose

The French island is one of the weakest teams in the zone, but will be looking to make a splash and reach the group stage of the Gold Cup; they were eliminated in the first round of qualifying, although they did manage a pair of home wins over Belize and St. Kitts and Nevis.
