UPDATE 1-Soccer-Cavallini, David hat-tricks power Canada into quarter-finals


Lucas Cavallini and Jonathan David each scored a hat-trick as Canada romped to a record-setting 7-0 win over Cuba in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Sunday to seal their spot in the Gold Cup quarter-finals. David put Canada ahead in the fourth minute before Cavallini took over the Group A clash with a first-half hat-trick against the already-eliminated Cubans. “It was one of those games where we had to take it to them and really keep our tempo high,” said Canada head coach John Herdman. Shortly after Junior Hoilett scored to make it 5-0 in the 50th minute, Cavallini nearly had a fourth goal but his penalty in the 56th minute missed the target. We’re really excited for what we’ve got next.” (Reporting by Frank Pingue in Toronto; Editing by Ian Ransom and Sudipto Ganguly)
