This Sunday sees the start of a new edition of the Gold Cup, the competition that brings together all the CONCACAF teams plus Qatar. With the United States as hosts, reigning champions and favourites to retain the title, we offer a list of interesting players to follow in the tournament, thanks to our extensive coverage of leagues and players, with which you can visualise the performance of each player in their respective leagues.
The competition will feature four groups of four teams, in a classic format of qualifying for the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final. Mexico, Qatar and Honduras share a group, the tightest of the four. We highlight some players who have performed well recently in less fancied teams.
Deybi Flores – Honduras
We have used a specific radar for players with great containment ability, where Deybi Flores, a player from Honduras, figures as a profile that has particularly stood out this season in the Hungarian League. In addition to a high success rate in passing and ball progression, Deybi Flores has shown very good numbers in successful duels and effectiveness in the tackle.
Cory Burke – Jamaica
Rubilio Castillo – Honduras
Among the few Honduran players playing in foreign leagues, Rubilio Castillo is among the most prominent, showing great volume and dribbling skills in the Chinese league. After an extensive career with clubs in Costa Rica and Guatemala, and even in the Portuguese league, Castillo is considered to be one of the most outstanding players in the Honduran national team.
Alex Roldán – El Salvador
Alex Roldan is one of the names to watch in the team coached by Hugo Ernesto Perez. With almost 1500 minutes played in Seattle Sounders, in the MLS, the Salvadoran right back, with a market value of 3 million, is one of the most experienced players with great present. He is a player with a great offensive vocation and a very good percentage of success in crosses into the box and participation in plays that end in shots.
Alexander Lopez – Honduras
