The Colorado Rapids have not had the best run over the past year. They only have two wins since July of 2014. The team currently is tenth place in the Major League Soccer Western Conference with a 2-8-4 record.

There are bright spots, though, for the club. Specifically that it’s players are making and impacting national club rosters.

Recently MLS announced that 63 players were named to their respective Gold Cup teams. Among the players named was Rapids forward Gabriel Torres, who was named to the provisional Panamanian National team.

Torres has had a rather impressive 2015 campaign compared to his difficult showing in 2014. So far this season he has four goals to go along with assists.

The Gold Cup is presented by the CONCACAF. It is a by-annual event where 12 nations participate to be the winner. There are three sub-regions: North America (three automatic entrants), Central America (Central American Cup) and the Caribbean (Caribbean Cup).

This is the 13th Gold Cup; the United States won the inaugural Gold Cup in 1991. Mexico owns a tournament-record six titles, followed by the United States with five and Canada with one.

The United States won the last Gold Cup tournament in 2013, and holds the half ticket to the 2017 Confederations Cup. The U.S. will be facing the winner in a single-playoff game for the right to represent the CONCACAF in the FIFA competition.

The Gold Cup will be held across the United States from July 7-26, 2015.
