    Nicaragua kicked out of the gold cup and relegated to CONCACAF Nations League B after it was found they used an ineligible player in 8 matches. Trinidad and Tobago takes their spot in both the Gold Cup and CONCACAF Nations League A. (Antigua/Barbuda takes T&T's GC preliminary round spot)

    I feel bad for the players. They had a pretty good team set up for the Gold Cup .

    How in the world did they think they would get away with fielding an ineligible player?
    Boggles my mind.

    ECU showed them the way, that's how.

    Funny thing is that Concacaf threw them out of Gold Cup 2023 because the ineligible Uruguayan player participated in 8 Gold Cup qualifying matches.

    What about the matches he played for Nicaragua in WC qualifiers (March - June 2021)? Just watch Concacaf do nothing about that, just like Conmebol did.
