Auvray, Guadeloupe Bow Out

Stephane Auvray and Guadeloupe bowed out of the Gold Cup tonight at LiveSTRONG Sporting Park, losing to the United States 1-0. While the US dominated the game, they were only able to find a single goal through Jozy Altidore. Much of the rest of the game saw Clint Dempsey miss numerous chances to extend the USA's lead. In the loss, Auvray went 90 minutes for the Gwada Boys. Depending on how things go, he could possibly be available now for KC when they take on San Jose on Friday. The US move on to take on Jamaica at RFK Stadium this weekend. Panama topped the group after a late equalizer by Luis Tejada gave Panama a 1-1 draw with Canada, and will take on El Salvador at RFK as well. New York Red Bulls midfielder, Dwayne De Rosario's name goes down in history as the first player to score a real goal at LSP.

Guadeloupe played a gritty game. St├ęphane Zubar did very well off the back line. For nation of 405,000 vs the US's 311 million, they have a nice percentage of talented footballers!

Wish I could find a Guadeloupe jersey.
