FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Duckens Nazon scored on a nifty breakaway move in the 85th minute to give Haiti a 1-1 tie with Panama in the CONCACAF Gold Cup opener Tuesday night.

Nazon took a long pass down the right side and beat defender Harold Cummings with a move to the inside before shooting to the far post, past goalkeeper Jaime Peneda.

Panama, runner-up to the U.S. in the 2013 Gold Cup, went ahead in the 55th minute of the Group A match. Alberto Quintero scored from just outside the penalty area when defender Reginal Goreux whiffed on a clearing attempt.

It was the first draw in seven openers for Panama, which outshot Haiti 7-2. Haiti has two draws and four losses in Gold Cup openers.
