El Salvador were in control from the start and took a 1-0 lead in the 24’ when Jairo Henriquez’s cross was met by the stabbing foot of Joshua Perez

El Salvador remained on the front foot and a foul committed on Nelson Bonilla gave the hosts a penalty kick in the 51’, however Bonilla’s effort went over the crossbar, keeping the islanders to within a goal.

The chances kept coming for El Salvador though, through Bonilla and also Gerson Mayen, and the latter finally was able to double the margin with a right-footed finish in the 87’ to round out the 2-0 scoreline.
