Guyana’s National U20 Women’s football team have reached round 16 of the Concacaf Women's U-20 Championship, and are now set to challenge Haiti on Saturday.
Action in Group F has come to an end as the Lady Jags proceed to the knockout round this weekend, along with Panama and Mexico who finished second and first respectively.
The final team from Group F, Honduras, will not be advancing in the competition.
While Guyana went down 5-0 to Panama in the Concacaf Women's U-20 Championship, the team will still advance in the tournament with their third-place standing.
Concacaf reports that Panama took to the field with their sights set on a full three points and a quick start with two goals in the first 10 minutes which laid the groundwork for the commanding victory.
Panama scored two minutes in, and six minutes later in the 8th minute, it was 2-0.
Guyana will now take on Haiti who finished 2nd in Group H after tying their final group stage game 0-0 with Jamaica. The match will be played on Saturday, March 5th.
The Lady Jags qualified third out of a very tough group that featured former champions Mexico and former semi-finalists Panama and Honduras.
This is the second time that Guyana has qualified to play in this Concacaf regional tournament, having reached the quarter-final stage on debut in 2020.
