Trinidad and Tobago are coming off winning 6-1 over Montserrat in the first round of the Prelims. Among the scorers were Columbus Crew’s Kevin Molino, Marcus Joseph and Judah Garcia. The result is a relief for the Soca Warriors, who didn’t pass the first round of Concacaf World Cup Qualifying.
On the other hand, French Guiana will be playing their first match of the Prelims, after Cuba couldn’t travel to the US for not being able to comply with the safety protocols. It will also be their first official match since their defeat against Saints Kitts and Nevis in November 2019 for the Concacaf Nations League group stage. Thierry De Neef’s side will try to get a better result this time.
