EAST HARTFORD — Brek Shea scored his first international goal off a feed from Landon Donovan in the 82nd minute Tuesday night to give the United States a 1-0 victory over Costa Rica at Rentschler Field and the top spot in its Gold Cup group.

Earlier in the afternoon, Ariel Martinez ended Cuba’s long Gold Cup drought with three goals Tuesday, and Jeniel Molina’s last-second score lifted the Cubans into the quarterfinals with a 4-0 rout of overmatched Belize.
