Panama vs. Cuba

Through the group stage of the tournament, Panama was the only side other than the United States to go undefeated. It enters the knockout round as one of the most feared squads in the draw.

Though Cuba struggled during round-robin play, this team still has enough talent to put up a fight, though it will be difficult to turn things around drastically this late in the tournament.


Mexico vs. Trinidad and Tobago

Obviously, the Mexican squad is arguably the most talented in the field, but this is a team that has endured through some struggles during its Gold Cup run.

Mexico fell in its tournament opener to Panama, but the favorites bounced back to claim wins in each of its final two matches and enter this contest as the heavy favorite to advance to the semifinals.

Simply put, if Mexico doesn't advance to the next round, there will be uproar.


United States vs. El Salvador

For once, it seems like the United States' time at an international competition.

The red, white and blue are getting sizable contributions from less heralded places, as unsung heroes like Chris Wondolowski have lead the way offensively. But, overall, this team was expected to at least advance to the tournament final.

El Salvador has posted mixed results thus far, with a draw, a win and a loss to its name. In general, though, it's quite clear that the U.S. has a vastly superior team in terms of talent.

If talent wins out, so too will the United States.


Honduras vs. Costa Rica

In what will be arguably the most closely contested match of the knockout round, Costa Rica will take on Honduras in a clash between two of the tournament's most capable defensive squads.

Costa Rica has demonstrated its mettle, coming within eight minutes of earning a draw with the United States during the group stage. And it did post two wins in total. However, the one-goal win over Belize was not an encouraging result.
