In the first Gold Cup game played in the Caribbean, El Salvador defeated Curacao, 1-0, Monday at the National Stadium in Kingston. Nelson Bonilla scored the lone goal in first-half stoppage time.


Back in Nations League qualifiers in March, Bonilla also scored four minutes into the second half and Damion Lowe's own goal five minutes from full time secured a 2-0 win over Jamaica at Estadio Cuscatlan.

All eyes were on Leon Bailey for his much-anticipated Jamaica debut, but it was veteran Dever Orgill who stole the show. The 29-year-old forward struck for a pair of first-half goals to pace the Reggae Boyz to a 3-2 win over Honduras in a Concacaf Gold Cup Group C opener Monday night at the National Stadium in Kingston.


Two minutes after Choco Lozano pulled Honduras to within a goal, Lowe latched onto a Peter-Lee Vassell corner kick and powerfully headed in from the edge of the six-yard box. Los Catrachos added a stoppage time goal to make the Reggae Boyz sweat out the final few moments.
