U.S. National Soccer Team Defeats Cuba; Two Cuban Players Defect Before Game

The U.S. men's national soccer team defeated Cuba 6-1 last night in a World Cup qualifying game held in Washington, DC.

The Miami Herald reports that prior to the game, two of Cuba players, Pedro Faife and Reynier Alcantara, disappeared from their hotel and apparently defected. The report indicates that one of the players is already in Florida with relatives.

In March 2008, seven players from Cuba's under-23 soccer team defected after playing a match in Tampa.
