March 25, 2015 - Yordan Santa Cruz scores brace in 3-0 win over Dominican Republic
"Cuba goleó 3-0 a República Dominicana, en duelo amistoso que tributó al ganador la I Copa Máximo Gómez, disputada en el estadio Cibao FC, de Santiago de los Caballeros. Y no podía ser otro que su volante de llegada Yordan Santa Cruz, quien anidara par de goles a la escuadra quisqueyana. Recuérdese que el joven cienfueguero fue factor clave en la obtención del tercer lugar de la selección sub 21 cubana en los pasados Juegos Centroamericanos y del Caribe, en Veracruz. Por esa loable cota en la justa del área, el director técnico de la escuadra absoluta, Walter Benítez, lo convocó en esta ocasión poniéndole como regular desde el pitazo inicial. Y Yordan le respondió con dos dianas consecutivas en los minutos 10 y 22, para asombro de la grada local, pletórica al extremo… y para regocijo de los hinchas cubanos, quienes desean el fin de la sequía goleadora que tanto «azota» a nuestras selecciones en los eventos foráneos. Según han reflejado las páginas webs visitadas, el tercer gol fue al aval del ariete pinareño Maykel Reyes (min. 28), otro joven integrante de la escuadra sub 21." - Cuba Hora

November 13, 2014 - Corero, Escalante & Pascuel score in win over Curacao
"With virtually the last kick of the game, deep into stoppage time, defending champions Cuba kept their hopes of retaining their CFU Caribbean Cup title alive with a gutsy 3-2 victory over Curacao at the Montego Bay Sports Complex. Orisbel Leiva Pascuel, who came on in the 72nd minute, fired past goalkeeper Jarzinho Pieter from a goalmouth melee to break the hearts of the Curacao players, who had fought their way back from a goal down twice.... Jorge Luis Coralles Corero shot Cuba into the lead after 15 minutes but Prince Rajcombe equalise on the stroke of half time for Curacao. Yasmany Lopez Escalante headed Cuba back into the lead in the 51st minute but Curacao would not go away and Givaro Nepomucena levelled for them in the 69th. A draw seem on the cards until Pascual latched onto a bouncing ball in the ara and drove it back past the goalkeeper five minutes into stoppage time." - Sports Max
