It was also a tight on between Antigua and Barbuda and Belize, with the Benna Boys emerging with a narrow 1-0 win thanks to Keon Greene’s left-footed finish in the 80’.
The day’s action in the group was capped by Honduras posting a 12-0 win over Sint Maarten on the strength of hat-tricks from Carlos Mejia, Cristian Calix and a brace from Luis Palma.
