Fans can watch the Mexico vs. Cuba soccer match live online and see which squad can get off to the right start in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
The teams will face off Thursday at 9:30 p.m. ET from Chicago, the opening match for each nation.
The game could be a bit of a warming up for El Tri. Mexico is coming off the Copa America in which coach Miguel Herrera kept many of the best players off the roster, putting his focus instead on the Gold Cup.
But despite the recent losses for El Tri, fans who watch the Mexico vs. Cuba soccer match live online are likely to see a one-sided affair, Bleacher Report predicted:
"In a region where few victories are guaranteed, El Tri should be able to lock up three points with ease against Cuba. But they must be wary of the challenge the United States received in their opener against Honduras. As one of the top squads in the region, Mexico will get each opponent's best test, especially in the group stage."After Mexico's lackluster performance in the Copa America, many expect the fully engaged squad to make a bigger splash in the Gold Cup. Bora Milutinovic, who once led both the American and Mexican squads, said he believes the United States comes into the tournament as a favorite but added that Mexico has a strong chance to win the cup.
"The logical favorites are the United States because they play at home and because they are looking for revenge for the game they lost in Los Angeles," Milutinovic told ESPNFC.com.
Mexico has a good record in the Golf Cup of late, winning three titles in the last 13 years, but the United States has also won four times during that same time.
Milutinovic said there are other teams with a strong chance in this year's tournament.
"It would be a lack of respect to say that other teams don't have a chance," said Milutinovic. "You have the United States, but then Mexico, Costa Rica and Honduras all have teams that are very capable."
"Times change, but other teams exist and what makes football so pulsating is that every team can win," he added, "even if Mexico, the United States and Costa Rica have a better chance than the others."
