Didier Reynoso with a goal and assist was the best of the Cubans in the last meeting of the group stage Author: CONCACAF
The men’s under-17 football team managed to reach the round of 16 of the 2023 Concacafé World Cup Guatemala by beating Guadeloupe 4-0 on the last day of the group stage.
Residents of the Greater Antilles began to endure the attacks of their Caribbean “neighbors” on the lawn of the stadium “Doroteo Guamuch Flores”. However, the people of Guadalupeños were unable to confirm this superiority, and in the 22nd minute Yánciel Reynoso put the young Leones del Caribe ahead.
Ten minutes later, Lisardo Fernandez made it 2-0, and with that score both teams went into the break.
Shortly after an hour of play, Didier Reynoso, aged 68, crowned his outstanding performance with a superb goal that showed off his individual qualities. Hanoi Sosa (75) was fourth in the match and brought another joy to our team, which ended up third in the G bracket.
After this result, now in the top 16 phase, those led by Sandro Sevillano will play Panama on Saturday, February 18, finishing second in Group E.
The remaining round of 16 duels will be: Mexico-Nicaragua, USA-Dominican Republic, Canada-Haiti, Costa Rica-Puerto Rico, Jamaica-Guatemala, Honduras-Bermuda and El Salvador-Trinidad and Tobago.
The Islanders need to win this round and then the quarter-finals to keep one of the four contested tickets to the U-17 World Cup that Peru will host this year.
Here is the result of the match:
