Guatemala defeats Puerto Rico 9-2 in today’s Beach Soccer World Cup Qualifier in Nassau Bahamas. The Guatemalan National team could finally seize their first points in the competition after hammering Puerto Rico in the last group stage day.
Clincher By The Chapines, Was Wide Enough To Get Them Fighting For Fifth
The victory clinched by the Chapines was wide enough to get them fighting for the fifth place against Bahamas. Puerto Rico never had a true chance to really battle the Guatemalan dominion. An especially inspired Valencia, with four goals, and a 5-1 run at the end of the second leg were too much to cope with for the Puerto Rican.
However, not enough for Guatemala though, as four more goals in the last minutes finished any eventual option for their opponents. These three points, and a notable goal average, grant Guatemala the chance to contest hosts Bahamas for the fifth place in the tournament (Sunday, 14:30). Puerto Rico in return, will have to fight Jamaica to skip last place in this FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup – CONCACAF Qualifier Bahamas (Saturday, 13:15).
