Panama Vs. Guadeloupe, Gold Cup 2011: Jovial Brace Makes It 3-2

So maybe Guadeloupe aren't dead? Panama has taken their foot off the gas pedal and let Guadeloupe back into this match despite Guadeloupe being down a man. Panama were in control, up 3-0 and just had to see out the rest of the match, but seeing out the rest of the match requires playing it, not taking a nap. That's what Panama has done, allowing Brice Jovial to score his second goal of the match to cut the lead to 3-2 with 12 minutes to play.

Richard Socrier was unmarked on the right side of the box, but the pass into him was a little behind him. It didn't matter because he took a great first touch to get the ball in front of him and with a man beginning to close him down played the ball across the face of goal. Jovial came sprinting in, unmarked, and slide. He only barely got a toe to it, but that was all he needed to get on it. The ball was redirected just inside the post for the Guadeloupe goal. Game on!
