Viewing Parties Set For U.S. Gold Cup Game Throughout L.A. County:

Viewing parties for today’s 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal game between the U.S. and Cuba will be held at five locations in Los Angeles County and in Tustin in Orange County.

The opening kickoff from Baltimore is set for 2 p.m. The game will be televised in English by Fox and in Spanish by Univision.

The Los Angeles and Orange County watch parties will be held at:

— House of Wings Sportsbar, 2317 D St., La Verne

— The Man Cave Ultimate Sports Bar and Lounge, 3575 Cahuenga Blvd., Universal City;

— Q’s Billiard Club, 11835 Wilshire Blvd., Brentwood;

— Shannon’s On Pine, 209 Pine Ave., Long Beach;

— Underground Pub & Grill, 1332 Hermosa Ave., Hermosa Beach; and

— The Auld Dubliner, 2497 Park Ave., Tustin.

The viewing parties are organized by various chapters of American Outlaws, a nationwide support group for the U.S. men’s and women’s national soccer teams.

The U.S. won Group A of the biennial championship of the North American, Central American and Caribbean region with a 2-0-1 record.

Cuba advanced to the quarterfinals thanks to a 1-0 victory over Guatemala Wednesday that made it one of the top two third-place teams in the 12- team tournament. The victory was Cuba’s third in 23 Gold Cup games.

Cuba began the tournament by losing to Mexico, 6-0, July 9, then lost to Trinidad and Tobago, 2-0, Sunday.

The U.S. is 27th in the rankings compiled by FIFA, soccer’s international governing body. Cuba is ranked 104th.

The U.S. is 8-1-1 against Cuba, losing the first game, 5-2, on July 20, 1947, in Havana, tying the next one, 1-1, on Sept. 14, 1949 in Mexico City, then winning each of the next eight games, outscoring the Cubans, 29-5.

The U.S. won the most recent game, 4-1, on July 13, 2013, in a Gold Cup group stage game.

Since completing group play with a 1-1 tie against Panama on Monday, the U.S. has dropped three players from its roster and added three, including Los Angeles Galaxy forward Alan Gordon.

If the U.S. wins, it would face the winner of today’s Haiti-Jamaica quarterfinal in a semifinal Wednesday. The tournament final will be played July 26.
