After a 0-5 thrashing last Sunday by Canada in the under-23s pre-Olympic qualifying event, Guatemalan fans in San Diego celebrated as if they had won a stunning victory. Their team had already qualified and the result left Mexico needing a victory over Haiti by six clear goals.
In the end they managed only a 5-1 victory and will be missing out on Beijing, which is of course shattering news for the Guatemalans! Hugo Sanchez must be worried about his job as head coach of el Tri. Meanwhile Guatemala will play Honduras in the semis later today. A win will book their ticket for the Games.
