With the pre-tournament favourites progressing with minimal fuss, the sides performing above expectations have captured the imagination so far.
It's been a campaign to remember for Haiti, who capped off their group stage with a fantastic comeback win over Costa Rica. After successes over modest opposition in Bermuda and Nicaragua in their first two games, beating Los Ticos suggests they're a team capable of doing some more damage in the tournament.
It will be Canada for them in the quarters, where Haiti will be tasked with containing some of the best young talent at the Gold Cup. Bayern Munich's Alphonso Davies has been a threat for the Canucks, but 19-year-old Jonathan David has stood out, netting five times at the tournament so far to see him lead the Golden Boot race:
The other shock story has been Curacao, who edged into the knockout stages from a tight Group C thanks to a 1-1 draw with Jamaica.
Their progression couldn't have been much more dramatic, with this stunning stoppage-time equaliser from Jurien Gaari enough to see them into the last eight for the first time ever:
Goal's Jon Arnold paid tribute to the development of the nation in recent years to make it to this point:

Curacao has to be Concacaf's poster child. They make #GoldCup in 2017. Come out, try to play football. Lose every game 2-0, but do so with dignity. They continue with the project. Win 3 Nations League games. Get their first Gold Cup goal & with it their first win. Now knockouts!
They face a huge task in the quarter-finals against defending champions United States. While the USMNT have shown vulnerabilities over the last 12 months, at the Gold Cup they have been improved, with their 6-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago arguably the best display from any team so far.
In attack, the team has been especially potent:
ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo
The USMNT wins Gold Cup Group D, thanks to Jozy Altidore's 42nd career goal for the USA. The 11 goals scored by Team USA in group play match their most in a single Gold Cup group stage (also had 11 in 2013). The US will face Cinderella story Curaçao in the quarterfinals. https://t.co/C85IkwlBz7
Meanwhile, Mexico may be without a number of key creators and goalscorers at the Gold Cup, yet they've been able to navigate through Group A with ease. They'll be the big favourites up against Costa Rica, who have yet to find their groove.
The remaining quarter-final sees Jamaica face Panama, with the former seeking to go one better than their runners-up finish in the Gold Cup two years ago.
