IT'S the main event for serious football fans on Sunday but getting a bet on the Concacaf Gold Cup opener may be harder than defending a Swiss free-kick.

While firms have priced up win-draw-win on the Costa Rica v Cuba clash there isn't much else on offer.

Luckily this looks a no-brainer with Costa Rica a best 2-5 with Paddy Power against one of the minnows of the tournament.

Costa Rica are the third best side in Concacaf history behind Mexico and the United States and have won it three times although not since 1989.

Last time out they lost on penalties in the semi-finals to eventual winners Mexico and will be looking to make up for that.

Having failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup the Costa Ricans need a decent run-out in the States.

Anything but an opening win for them would be a huge shock so consider Costa Rica minus one goal at 11-10 with sportingbet.

The match kicks off in Dallas at 11pm BST.
