Brendon Creed scored his third goal in as many games, boosting Trinidad & Tobago to a 2-0 victory over Guyana and a place in the 2013 CONCACAF Under-17 Championship on Saturday.
Although originally announced that the Caribbean would play a six-team final round of qualifying to determine its five berths, the Caribbean Football Union late Saturday decided that the five first-round group winners would qualify for the CONCACAF finals — foregoing the need for second round.
Trinidad finished atop first-round Group 4 with nine points, three better than Suriname, to join Jamaica, Cuba and Haiti which already have won their groups and secured berths in the 12-team CONCACAF championship April 6-19 in Panama.
Group 5 will be determined on Thursday when host St. Kitts & Nevis takes-on Barbados. Both sides enter the game with three points after each posted wins over the U.S. Virgin Islands in the three-team group.
