Guyana’s World Cup hopes end with defeat to St. Kitts and Nevis
Guyana’s hopes of making it to the next round of the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers were dashed by St. Kitts and Nevis, who emerged with a 3-0 victory in Group F action on Friday evening.
The Golden Jaguars, the Senior National Men’s team, were hoping to win both their remaining games in round one and hope other results go their way in order to progress to the next stage.
However, that was not to be as the host nation pulled off their third win in as many games to lead the Group.
St. Kitts took an early lead with Keithroy Freeman converting a penalty in the ninth minute, and adding a second goal in the 36th minute.
With a 2-0 lead at the half, the home side was in total control and Romaine Sawyers put the game further beyond Guyana with a strike in the 67th minute.
Guyana would now play Puerto Rico in their final game of the Qualifiers on June 8.
In their earlier Group matches in March, Guyana lost 0-3 to Trinidad and Tobago before rebounding to beat the Bahamas 4-0.
Only the top team from the Group will advance to the next round.
