Maradiaga fired as Guatemala soccer coach

GUATEMALA CITY -- Ramon Maradiaga was fired as coach of Guatemala's national soccer team, two days after a 2-1 loss to Cuba damaged the team's chances of advancing in World Cup qualifying.

Guatemala's only chance to advance to next year's finals in North and Central America and the Caribbean is to beat the United States on Nov. 19 at Commerce City, Colo., and have Trinidad and Tobago lose at home to Cuba.

The United States (4-1) has clinched a berth from Group One of the semifinals, and Trinidad and Tobago (2-1-2) is second with eight points, three ahead of Guatemala (1-2-2), which has a better goal difference.

The 53-year-old Maradiaga, who was fired Friday, captained Honduras at the 1982 World Cup.
