Who will win the Gold Cup????

This tournament is pretty even but of all the teams I think Costa Rica has the most complete one mainly because all their 1st team players will be there including Wanchope. While Mexico and USA are bringing a lot of second string players to see if any of them can break into their "A" teams.

Ecuador is bringing a mixed squad of veterans and young unproven players. They will be missing their 3 best players IMO Delgado, De la Cruz and Kaviedes, they stayed in Europe to play club soccer.

South Korea also is bringing a strong team but IMO they lack the kind firepower to win the whole thing.

T&T is basically bringing an experimental squad with a few veterans.

Canada, the defending champs, are bringing a very young team.

Guatemala is also brininging a full squad only Pezarozzi will be missing. They won't be easy to beat but they will have trouble against more physical teams. The same goes for El Salvador but their team is on a rebuilding mode so they will have even more trouble.

Haiti, Cuba and Martinique are simply out of their depth on this one, though they are all very physical teams that can score an upset on a given day.

I think Costa Rica (team Strength), Mexico (Fan Support) and USA (Host) are all pretty even chance. Being an Amer, I voted for US, more like hope than anything else!
