Guyana drawn in Group F of CONCACAF U-20 championship
The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) conducted the official draw for its 2018 Under-20 Championship, at the Concacaf Headquarters, in Miami on Thursday.
It is there that Guyana was drawn in Group F alongside, El Salvador, Guatemala, Curacao and Cayman Islands.
The championship is scheduled to take place November 1-21 at the IMG Academy in Florida, and will be contested by a record number of 34 CONCACAF Member Associations.
The centralized competition will qualify the top four finishers to the FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019.
Unlike the previous format, which included regional qualifiers in the Caribbean and Central America and one final championship, this year’s redesigned competition will ensure that all the participating teams have access to play more top-level football matches.
The event, which sorted the participating teams into four groups of six teams and two groups of five teams, was conducted by CONCACAF Head of National Team Competitions Carlos Fernandez.
As previously announced, the top six ranked teams in the newly announced CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Ranking– United States, Mexico, Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica and El Salvador – were seeded into position 1 of Groups A, B, C, D, E and F respectively. The remaining 28 teams were placed into five pots and drawn using a single blind system. (CONCACAF)
