It was victory for Trinidad and Tobago and tragedy for Jamaica in this weekend’s round of World Cup semi-final qualifiers.
Khaleem Hyland led the Soca Warriors to their first goal in the 67th minute, beating Guatemala’s goalkeeper Paulo Cesar Motta. Not too long after, Kenwyne Jones made it 2-0 in the 80th minute. Guatemalan Carlos Meija scored a goal in the 90th minute but it was too late for the Guatemalans. With the win, Trinidad and Tobago has secured 3 valuable points in their group.
The Reggae Boyz, however, weren’t as lucky as the Warriors. Jamaica lost 2-0 against Panama in front of a home crowd in Kingston. Armando Cooper neatly scored for Panama in the 42nd minute, then an own goal by Jamaican Wes Morgan in the 52 minute secured a second goal for the Panamanians.
