COSMOS COPA NYC / COSMOS COPA GROUP STAGE: DAY 2 RECAP

COSMOS COPA GROUP STAGE: DAY 2 RECAP

By Justin Block

The final day of the 2014 Cosmos Copa Group Stage saw the tournament move up to Randall's Island for a beautiful day of soccer. Each team had two more group stage matches to play coming into the day, and by the end of it, the field was cut from 16 teams down to eight. Eliminations didn't go down without drama or disappointment either.

NYC Poland and NYC France put Day 1's disappointing results behind them to cruise into the next round, while a previously in-form NYC Haiti misfired and bounced out of the tournament after a 0-0 draw against NYC USA. Here's how each group sorted itself out.
