Duckens Nazon's late goal gives Haiti tie with Panama in Gold Cup opener
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Duckens Nazon scored on a nifty breakaway move in the 85th minute to give Haiti a 1–1 tie with Panama in the CONCACAF Gold Cup opener Tuesday night.
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, went ahead in the 55th minute of the Group A match. Alberto Quintero scored from just outside the penalty area when defender Reginal Goreux whiffed on a clearing attempt.
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.
