Guatemala salvaged a draw against Panama at the Doroteo Guamuch Flores Stadium, and although it remains unbeaten in the Concacaf Nations League, an unexpected opponent complicates the outlook for those led by the Mexican coach. Luis Fernando Tena.
The surprising victory obtained by Trinidad and Tobago at the Mágico González Stadium, not only left the ‘Selecta’ on the verge of elimination, but also put the Chapines in trouble, who now need to win their last two games to avoid rely on third parties. .
And the format never favored Guatemala. The ‘Bicolor’ must finish the Nations League with two visits, the most important of which is Port of Spain against Trinidad and Tobago, a match they are obliged to win to stay alive in their goal.
What does Guatemala need to qualify for the League of Nations?
A win against Trinidadian is not enough for Guatemala to qualify, even if they win against Trinidad and Tobago, a win against Panama in Curacao will also put them on the ropes, because if they lose to the Canaleros in their last game, they will be eliminated with a win in Trinidad and Tobago.
Those led by Angus Eve closed their participation by visiting Curacao, a team that lost the first two games against Martinique and the Caribbean team itself. However, both games are visitors to the Dutch colony, if Curacao manages to get points from Trinidad and Tobago, Guatemala can enter even with a loss against Panama.
“I’m not worried about the visit (Trinidad and Tobago and Panama) because our team has a lot of personality, and it’s better to play as a visitor. We will go to Trinidad and Panama to look for results and classification” said coach Luis Fernando Tena after the duel.
