Barbados, Belize and Curacao move on in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying
Ten teams played the second legs of their CONCACAF 2018 World Cup qualifiers on Sunday. Here's a look at which teams are moving on and which teams dreams of a trip to Russia are over.
In a rain-delayed match in Havana, Cuba and Curacao played to a 1-1 draw that sees visiting Curacao advance on away goals after the first match finished in a 0-0 draw.
Michel Marquez scored for the hosts in the fifth minute, but Curacao's Vidarrell Merencia evened the score in the 16th minute. The game was stopped at halftime due to heavy storms, and no goals were scored after play resumed.
Belize got goals from three different players as they beat the Dominican Republic 3-0 to advance 5-1 on aggregate to the next round.
Harrison Roches got the scoring started for the hosts in the 17th minute and teammate Elroy Kuylen added another first-half goal in the 38th minute. As the second half wound down, Belize's Deon McCaulay added an insurance goal to secure the win.
In an eight-goal thriller, St. Vincent and the Grenadines drew with hosts Guyana 4-4 at Providence Stadium in Georgetown.
Tevin Slater scored twice and had his team up 3-2 in the second half, but Guyana kept coming. Emery Welshman scored in the 76rh minute and Neil Dannis added a penalty in the 86th, but it wouldn't be enough.
The final aggregate scoreline of 6-6 sees St. Vincent through with a superior away goals tally of four.
In the biggest reversal of the day, Antigua and Barbuda overcame a 3-1 aggregate deficit at St. Lucia to win the game 4-1 and advance by an aggregate final of 5-4. All four of Antigua's goals came after the 70-minute mark.
Antigua conceded three away goals in the first leg and were prohibitive underdogs going into the second leg. However, a Josh Parker brace and two injury-time goals from the visitors will see them through to the next round.
Barbados dispatched Aruba at home 1-0 to win their tie 3-0 after taking a 2-0 win at Aruba last week.
Hadan Holligan, 18, scored the goal for the hosts, who cruise into the next CONCACAF World Cup qualifying round.
