The first Gold Cup match played in Costa Rica will pit Haiti against Concacaf Gold Cup debutants Bermuda in the opening match of a Group B doubleheader Sunday at Estadio Nacional.

Haiti, who twice reached Gold Cup quarterfinals (in 2002 and 2009) are making their seventh appearance in the competition and first since 2015.

Haiti

Project Starting XI

Haiti booked a berth in the Gold Cup by finishing first in the Concacaf Nations League qualification, winning all four matches with a +17 goal differential.

Les Grenadiers played three Gold Cup tune-up matches, falling to El Salvador and Chile before defeating Guyana 3-1 in Costa Rica. Meckack Jerome and Wilde-Donald Guerrier put Haiti in front, 2-0 before the half-hour mark and Jonel Desire added a third goal just past the hour mark before Keanu Marsh-Brown pulled Guyana a goal back in the 90th minute.

Bermuda

Project Starting XI

Bermuda lost their first CNL qualifier, falling to Aruba 3-1, but rallied for a lopsided win over St. Maarten, a 1-0 win over El Salvador in Hamilton and then rallied from an early deficit to win 3-1 at the Dominican Republic on the fourth and final matchday to finish fifth and clinch their first-ever Gold Cup berth.

The Gombey Warriors followed that impressive performance up with a 1-0 victory over fellow Gold Cup participants Guyana in an international friendly at Bermuda National Stadium. Donte Brangman scored the 37th-minute winner.
