The loss saw them finish second in Group D behind the Mexicans.Leading up to the clash with Mexico, Dr Ivan Joseph, Guyana’s head coach, said that his side will not have featured some of the regular starter, since he would want to ensure that they’re well-rested for that first round sudden-death playoff, and was not going out to play for a win at the expense of injuries or depleting the resources of his team.Cayman Islands narrowly made it out of their group which also featured Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti and St Kitts & Nevis.In their first game against Haiti, Cayman Islands went down 8-0, followed by a 2-0 defeat to Trinidad and Tobago and they then edged St Kitts & Nevis 3-2 in their final Group H game.Guyana, on the other hand, eased past Nicaragua 3-1, downed Puerto Rico 2-1, before closing out against Mexico.
