T&T KNOCKED OUT AFTER IMPROVED SHOWING

Trinidad and Tobago went into the match needing to win by 3 clear goals to progress in the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying tournament. They did score 3, but Guatemala scored 4. The Futsal Soca Warriors went ahead with a stunning strike as Che Benny saw the Guatemalan ‘keeper out of the goal and struck from his own goal area, for the 1-0 lead. However, that seemed to have started the Guatemalan engines and the hosts were eventually in the lead with 2 goals within 3 minutes . Jameel Neptune scored his second goal in the tournament to level the scores 2-2, going into half time.

But the next goal, the winner, would come from Aguilar in the 39th minute, to hand Guatemala a hard earned 4-3 win to allow them to qualify as group winners. Trinidad and Tobago will exit the tournament with zero points.
