Costa Rica Vs. Cuba, 2011 Gold Cup: Lineups

There's not much one can realistically say about the Cuba lineup. Very few have had the privilege of seeing them play, so nobody really knows how good (or not good) they are. Even the opposition scouting will be minimal, but I'd imagine that Costa Rica are probably pretty confident that they can get a result against their reclusive opponents.

Being extremely confident would probably be the reason Bryan Ruiz isn't featuring for Costa Rica, who appear to have chosen to rest the Eredivisie star. An injury is a possibility, but one imagines that would have been bigger news - instead it just looks like Ruiz is being held back for more dangerous opponents than Cuba. It'll be interesting to see whether or not that's a mistake.

Costa Rica lineup: Navas; Diaz, Oviedo, Mora, Marshall, Acosta, Salvatierra, Borges, Bolaños, Ureña, Saborio

Cuba lineup: Molina; Fernandez, Urgelles, Marquez, Y. Colome, J. Colome, Fransisco, Hernandez, Gomez, Cervantes, Lahera
