After the first two disputed days of the Gold Cup 2021Some players have not shown the desired performance and for some reason or another, the perception in a sector of the fans is that they have been left to duty.
From slow pace, substitutions and even injuries, there are several reasons why the following five players headline Gold Cup disappointments so far in competition.
The first disappointment is also the one that the player has the least fault, since the terrible injury he suffered in the first match of the tournament prevented him from dazzling as everyone expected. Hirving lozano had to be operated on with 40 stitches in the face, so the absence of one of the best players in the tournament of course has to be disappointment.
After the absence of Jonathan David in the axis of attack and that of Alphonso davies last minute, the name of Lucas Cavallini emerged by some as the new benchmark of the team; however, his performance has been totally overshadowed and he is missing a unique opportunity to be the leader of the Canadian team.
Hector Moreno has been completely displaced from the eleven holder of Gerardo Martino with Mexico and therefore, the ‘bomb transfer’ of Monterrey has not seen a single minute of competition after the first two days.
A return to prominence was expected after returning from Qatari football; However, Moreno’s present is not the best and he will have to watch much of the remainder of the tournament from the bench.
10 minutes of the tournament were enough for the great reference of this rejuvenated American team to break again.
Paul Arriola he was called to be the destabilizing element of this team without its top stars, but he was disabled by his great ordeal in recent years, injuries. Without a doubt one of the worst disappointments in this Gold Cup.
He has a wide margin for improvement and has the necessary experience to weigh in at some point in the tournament; However, the first two games have been the perfect example of the decline of Bryan ruiz.
He is no longer the differential element of the Costa Rican team and he shows two revolutions below his teammates. An extraordinary player who seems to be in the last great tournament with his country if he does not recover that level that took him to the highest European level.
