Monterroso hired as Guatemala's new coach

GUATEMALA CITY -- Benjamin Monterroso was hired as Guatemala's national soccer coach for the third time Friday, taking over a team on the brink of elimination during qualifying for the 2010 World Cup.

He replaces Ramon Madariaga, a Honduran who was fired after a 2-1 loss to Cuba.

Guatemala's only chance of advancing to the final round of CONCACAF qualifying is to beat the United States at Commerce City, Colo., on Nov. 19 and hope Trinidad and Tobago loses at home to Cuba. Guatemala has never qualified for the World Cup.

Monterroso also coached Guatemala in 1998-99 and 2003-04. He also led the country's Olympic team during qualifying for the 2000 Sydney Games. His last coaching position was with Suchitepequez of the local league in 2005.

Monterroso previously coached Guatemala in 1998-99 and 2003-04. He also coached his country during the Olympic qualifying rounds in 2000. The last team he coached was Suchitepequez in the local league in 2005.
