El Salvador vs Grenada: Storylines
Both teams will return to the pitch for the first time in 2021. The pandemic outbreak halted much of the soccer activity in the region, which is why Grenada couldn't play so far after their brilliant campaign in the Concacaf Nations League in 2019. They have been promoted to League A and qualified for the Gold Cup 2021 after finishing atop their group unbeaten and were praised for their fascinating performance.
El Salvador did play a couple of games in 2020, one before the Covid breakthrough and the other at the end of the year. Still, none of them worked out very well. They were defeated by Iceland in January and then lost against the US Men's National Team by a hurtful margin of six goals. However, El Salvador did great in the Nations League group stage, where they clinched a Gold Cup 2021 berth and were promoted to the first tier as well.
