Trinidad 1-1 Guatemala: Najera earns tie

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) -- Carlo Gallardo Najera's goal in stoppage time gave Guatemala a 1-1 draw with Trinidad and Tobago in a World Cup qualifier for teams from North America, Central America and the Caribbean on Saturday.

Keon Daniel appeared to have won the match for the Soca Warriors at Hasely Crawford Stadium when he scored in the 84th minute, but Najera stunned the home side.

Trinidad could have remained perfect after opening the third round by beating Cuba 3-1, while Guatemala claimed its first point in CONCACAF Group A.

Trinidad coach Francisco Maturana was so unhappy with his team's first half that he made a double substitution at halftime, removing Carlos Edwards and Densil Theobald for Andre Toussaint and Anthony Wolfe.

But the home team continued to appear bereft of ideas, and the crowd became increasingly restless.

Guatemala had to replace injured goalkeeper Ricardo Fostor in the 67th. In the 84th, midfielder Dwight Yorke made his first appearance for Trinidad since retiring after the 2006 World Cup and set up Daniel at the top of the box to unleash a shot past Luis Molina Bruni into the top right corner.

Guatemala made few attempts on goal all night, but was awarded an injury-time free kick. Substitute Marco Papa Ponce fired the ball low into the box and Najera, running onto the pass, flicked a heel at it as it passed between his legs, deflecting it beyond Trinidad goalkeeper Marvin Phillip and into the bottom right corner.

On Wednesday, Guatemala hosts Cuba, and Trinidad and Tobago visits the United States.
