This will be the third Gold Cup for the Nicaraguans and the second straight. In 2017, Nicaragua was in Group B where they started with a 0-2 loss to Martinique. Later, Nicaragua lost 1-2 to Panama in which Carlos Chavarría scored the Pinoleros’ lone Gold Cup goal and then closed out the group stage with a 0-3 loss to the United States in Cleveland, Ohio. To reach the 2019 Gold Cup, Nicaragua achieved a historic 1-0 away win at Barbados with a goal from Juan Barrera in the 65th minute and a great performance from goalkeeper Justo Llorente. Barrera finished qualifying with five goals.
