Haiti scores late in 1-1 draw with Panama in Gold Cup opener
FRISCO, Texas (AP) Duckens Nazon wrong-footed the defense to score in the 85th minute and give Haiti a 1-1 draw with Panama in the CONCACAF Gold Cup opener Tuesday.
Nazon took a long pass down the right side and beat defender Harold Cummings with a move to the inside before shooting to the far post, past goalkeeper Jaime Peneda.
Panama, runner-up to the U.S. in the 2013 Gold Cup, opened the scoring in the 55th minute of the Group A match. Alberto Quintero scored from just outside the penalty area when defender Reginal Goreux failed to clear the ball.
It was the first draw in seven openers for Panama, which outshot Haiti 7-2. Haiti has two draws and four losses in Gold Cup openers.
