Cuba qualifies for U-20 Championship
Yaudel Lahera scored a pair of goals and led Cuba to a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands Antilles on Thursday, sending it to the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship.
With its third straight victory, Cuba finished atop Caribbean qualifying Group A and joined fellow regional qualifiers Guadeloupe and Jamaica, host Guatemala and North American entrants Canada, Mexico and the United States in the 12-team field.
The loss left the Netherlands Antilles in second place, sending it to a playoff round with Bermuda, Guyana and the yet-to-be determined Group D runner-up to decide the Caribbean's last of five berths in the CONCACAF finals.

The group will consist of the host Dominicans, Haiti, first-round Group C winner Guyana and first-round Group D winner Barbados.
