Matrim Martin scored Guyana’s lone goal in the 76th minute, before Suriname got two strikes in quick succession before the final whistle.

Djaier Prijor netted in the 85th minute, and four minutes later Donagay Misidjang completed the rout.

The defeat means the Guyanese are now fourth on the five-team table with just a solitary point, and one game remaining against the Turks and Caicos Islands on Thursday from 10:30h.
