Dayron Reyes will be a sensitive defeat for Cuba in the CONCACAF tournament. Author: Inter Miami II
The next Gold Cup, which starts in the United States on June 26, will be a very important test for the Cuban football team, which will return to this event in four years to demonstrate the growth they have had of late.
However, beyond the desire and how well the students are doing, reality hits hard on the aspirations of the group, which has learned in recent days that it will not be able to count on three important athletes for the upcoming fair.
One of them, Carel Espino, player of the Communicaciones de Guatemala, will be one of those who will miss out on the Golden Cup. Barrios fell to his right knee in the match his club played against Cobán Imperial in the 14th round of the Central American country’s Clausura Tournament.
According to the team, Espino will soon be undergoing surgery to repair an ACL tear he sustained in the joint, meaning he will be out of the national team and in touch for seven to nine. months, and therefore will not be able to play either the Golden Cup or the Guatemalan Apertura 2023.
Other bad news came from the United States, where Inter Miami II player Dyron Reyes suffered a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus. In the same game in which Inter came back from 0-2 to win 3-2, the talented midfielder provided an assist in the 17th minute but was substituted in the 32nd minute after the opponent fell to one knee.
In addition to these two recent casualties, it has been known since last February that teacher Pablo Elier will not be able to count on striker Cristian Flores from Costa Rican Perez Celedon in the near future.
Cristian, a starting figure for Tica, tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his team’s clash with Puntarenas FC on January 29 at the Clausura tournament. According to the club’s doctors’ report, Flores would be out for eight to ten months, meaning he would be out for the rest of the current Primera División campaign and also at the start of the next one.
Faced with such a situation, the vueltabajero technician must look for options that can not only understand his idea, but also make up for the missing key elements in his scheme as best as possible. From what we’ve seen, if the challenge seemed big, it looks a bit bigger now, although nothing changes the fact that it’s still in the hands, or better yet, at the feet of these Lions, the possibility of surpassing what many predict . .
