Canada advance to quarterfinals after record 7-0 Gold Cup victory over Cuba

CHARLOTTE, NC – Canada scored their most-ever goals in a Gold Cup match on Sunday as they defeated Cuba 7-0 to qualify for the quarterfinals. Whitecaps FC centre backs Derek Cornelius and Doneil Henry both earned the start as Canada also posted their second group-stage shutout.

Lucas Cavallini and Jonathan David both recorded hat-tricks, while Junior Hoilett added the other. Whitecaps FC Academy product Alphonso Davies was especially influential at left back.
