Once cash-strapped Trinidad and Tobago close to World Cup berth after 2-1 win over Guatemala

The Trinidad and Tobago women's soccer team — which didn't have enough money for lunch when it arrived in the U.S. nearly two weeks ago — moved closer to the final stages of World Cup qualifying Monday with a 2-1 win over Guatemala in the CONCACAF championship.

Kennya Cordner flicked in a header in the 73rd minute, and celebrated with a forward flip. Captain Maylee Attin Johnson added a penalty kick in the 83rd. Mara Monterroso scored in the 90th minute for Guatemala.

The result left Trinidad in second place in its qualifying group, pending the result of the second game of Monday's doubleheader at RFK Stadium between the United States and Haiti. Only an improbable victory by Haiti over the U.S. could keep Trinidad out of the semifinals.
