Watch Panama vs. Haiti live stream free in the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup opener from the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, as the regional tournament gets under way Tuesday.
Panama is one of the most veteran teams in the 2015 Gold Cup, with multiple players in their late 20s and early 30s. However, this will not prevent the Central American country from attempting to match their last performance at the tournament, in which they reached the final.
Unfortunately, Panama was drawn into Group A, which includes Team USA and Honduras, which face-off after the Panama vs. Haiti match. This doesn’t bode well for Panama, who has been a fixture at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, and they know they must get three points out of Haiti.
If you watch Panama vs. Haiti live stream free, you will see if the veterans can use their experience to grab a win in the very important opener. Panama has nine players with over 50 caps, and Anibal Godoy could reach that milestone if he plays against Haiti, according to SB Nation.
Even though Group A is a tough one and Team USA is a part of it, Panama is an opponent not to be taken lightly. They beat the U.S. in 2011, and in 2013, they prevailed over Mexico twice. Panama was also on the verge of qualifying for the World Cup when the U.S. came back in the final game.
Watch Panama vs. Haiti live stream free to see if Haiti — despite the fact that they are not favorites to get past the Groups Stage — can match the four points they earned in the 2009 Gold Cup, as many believe this is the best team they have put forth. Several of their starters play for European teams, and coach Marc Collat thinks they will surprise everyone after finishing in third place at the Caribbean Cup last November.
“It is a very difficult group, but what I want the players to understand is that we really are able to compete with the other teams within the region.”
Haiti can bank on their experience in the international arena and upset the more veteran Panama. Whichever the case, even though this is just the first match of the tournament, it’s always important to grab those three points right away.
Watch Panama vs. Haiti live stream free in the opening match of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup here. Kick-off is at 7 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. Central.
