ATLANTA --- Mexico and Panama set
up a semifinal rematch in the Concacaf
Gold Cup after each won their quarterfinal
matches on Saturday.
Panama beat 10-man Cuba 6-1, while
Mexico escaped with a 1-0 victory over
Trinidad and Tobago.
Panama is unbeaten thus far in the
tournament, with three wins, including
a 2-1 victory over Mexico in group play,
and a draw.
Mexico, a six-time Gold Cup champion,
is going for its third straight title, but has
not played well at all this year, putting

Mexico s Raul Jimenez beat diving goal-
keeper Jan Williams with a shot into the
left corner of the net in the 84th minute
to lead his side to victory over Trinidad
Mexico dominated the match, but
Williams foiled several Mexican scoring
opportunities, deflecting two shots in a
one-minute span in the second half, to
keep the Trinidadians in the contest.
De La Torre chafed when asked after
the match if he thought his side got a

game," De La Torre said. "That s what I
can tell you. Every time we win, we have
enough. We always have to fix things but
we also did a lot of great things tonight."

Cup qualifiers this year, scoring only three goals
and drawing with the likes of Jamaica, Costa
Rica and Panama. Mexico also failed to reach
the semifinals of the Confederations Cup, drop-
ping its first two matches to Italy and Brazil.
De La Torre believed his team showed com-
posure on Saturday to persistently pressure
Williams in hopes he would make a mistake.
"The team did not become desperate," he said.
"They were under our strategy and our plan in
order to win. It was very good on our end that

Cuba took a 1-0 lead against Panama on Jose
Ciprian s goal in the 21st minute, but Gabriel
Torres penalty four minutes later levelled the
score, and his second goal gave Panama the lead
for good in the 38th minute. Torres has five goals
in four Gold Cup games.
Cuba played a man down and gave up four
goals in the last 32 minutes after Ariel Martinez
was given a red card for a hard foul against Blas
Perez scored twice, and Carlos Rodriguez and
Jairo Jimenez also netted for Panama.
Panama coach Julio Dely Valdes said he was
upset by his team s lapse in concentration early
in the game.
"It came in a moment when Panama was dom-
inating the game, and we were looking to attack,"
Valdes said. "It s very difficult when you get
scored upon because it gets very complicated.
We had to continue to pursue the attack."
Panama, which has never won the Gold Cup,
hasn t allowed more than one goal in eight straight
matches in the tournament. The Panamanians
lost to the US in the semifinals two years ago.
