Despite filing a victory and a loss in its two friendly matches against Nicaragua, the Cuban national soccer team has a lot of work ahead of it, if it wants to show a better image in the face of the next international commitments.

Despite presenting in “Nicaraguan” lands a squad that was missing several of the members of the starting eleven, the Caribbean Lions continue to have difficulties in the defensive zone and in the medullary part of the field.

Although Nicaragua is not a vastly superior rival to Cuba, being able to play against a team of a similar level allows us to observe with greater objectivity how close or far the national team is from qualitatively advancing in the Concacaf area.

At the moment, little has been achieved. The strongest points for Cuba are the sobriety in the goal and the squad of gunners, who have shown mobility, a scoring nose and associations between them to generate danger in the face of the rival goal.

The Cuban defense is worrying, since distractions were observed in the brand, which almost always cost goals, and it was poor work on both sides, where the rival manages to overflow very easily to send the ball to the heart of the area.

The center of the field needs more dynamism to connect with the attack, since the Cuban attackers go down very frequently to look for the balls that do not reach them. You can play against it, but you have to bet on keeping the ball as long as possible and achieving a passing game that generates spaces in attack.

The coaching staff headed by Professor Pablo Elier Sánchez must be given a vote of confidence. Their work must be long-term, but for this they need all the support of the Cuban Football Association, in the aspects of managing international friendly commitments, in addition to facilitating the arrival on time to the concentration of all the men who are summoned. by the Pinar del Río coach.

The horizon of the Cuban squad is neither optimistic nor pessimistic, and this neutral state is dangerous. The two commitments against Nicaragua must be analyzed as a watershed to promote a national team that has the conditions to advance in our soccer zone.

Applying all the changes to strengthen a group greater than the 30 or 40 preselected is possible. The will must be to work attached to respect and commitment to our football.
