Panama Vs. Guadeloupe, Gold Cup 2011: Gabriel Gomez Stretches Panama Lead To 3-0

Panama is already better than Guadeloupe and they are up a man after a first half red card to Mickael Tacalfred. The Panamanians most certainly do not need any extra help to win, but that's what they got. A foul by Miguel Comminges on Blas Perez left the referee no choice, but to point to the penalty spot. Panama had themselves a penalty kick, one they converted, and now they have themselves a 3-0 lead with more than a half hour left to play in this Gold Cup Group C match.

One the penalty was given, Gabriel Gomez stepped to the spot and drilled a hard shot to the goalkeeper's right. Guadeloupe keeper Franck Grandel guessed right and dove, but the shot was hard and high. Grandel did not have a chance and Panama were ahead 3-0.

This match has been all-Panama from the beginning and with Guadeloupe down a man it is hard to imagine a comeback. Panama will need to keep pressing though to pad their goal difference, something that could make a huge difference when it's time to determine who moves on to the knockout stages.
