Dynamo internationals compete in early stages of CONCACAF Gold Cup

The 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup opened Tuesday and four Dynamo internationals are with their national teams at the tournament.

Jamaica opened Group B with a 2-2 draw against Costa Rica on Wednesday at StubHub Center in Carson, California. Giles Barnes started and played 61 minutes and Jermaine Taylor played 90 minutes as the Reggae Boyz played toe-to-toe with the Ticos, who reached the quarterfinals of last year’s FIFA World Cup.

Barnes and Taylor will have a chance to play at their home stadium Saturday as Jamaica meets Canada at 5:30 p.m. CT in the first of a Group B doubleheader at BBVA Compass Stadium (TICKETS). A ticket is good for both games, with Costa Rica facing El Salvador in the night cap at 8 p.m.

Honduras opened group play in Group A with a 2-1 loss to the United States Tuesday in Frisco, Texas. Dynamo midfielders Boniek Garcia and Luis Garrido were on the bench for Los Catrachos.

Honduras will face Panama Friday at 5 p.m. CT (Fox Sports 2, UniMas) at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts and Garcia would make his 100th appearance for Honduras if he features in the match.
