Bridgetown, Barbados (April 08, 2022) – The ConcacafW Qualifiers saw some close finishes as teams jostle to position themselves to take the top spot in their respective groups.
That said, the day began and ended with two nil-all draws—Cuba and Honduras, and Guyana and Nicaragua were unable to separate themselves by the final whistle, but the results ended on a positive note for Cuba and Guyana. Both teams are in second place in their groups and only need a win to move onto the next round.
