Suriname pummel Junior Jags 4-1

Any hope that Guyana’s Men’s Under-20 football team had of advancing to the next round of the CONCACAF U20 Championships was shattered on Tuesday morning, after a 4-1 loss to neighbouring Suriname.

The Junior Jags suffered another defeat, this time to Suriname

Guyana’s starting XI saw one change since their draw against El Salvador on Sunday as Rodensia Tudor came in for Brandon Khedoo, but fortunes were not quite the same for the Junior Jags. The remainder of the XI read: Captain Solomon Austin, goalkeeper Emmanuel Lewis, Tyler Lyle, Gerry Burnette, Tyrel Stephen, Kymani Sealey, Ezekial Rowland, Matrim Martin, Kyle Reid and Nathaniel Pydana.
Robinio Pinas opened the scoring in the 7th minute for Suriname, after which Jermaine Rijssel made it a 2-0 game in the 35th.
The Junior Jags upped their defence and kept Suriname quiet for an extended period, well into the second half and coupled with Matrim Martin’s strike for Guyana in the 76th, their hope of pulling it back was renewed.
However, two late goals off the boots of Djaier Prijor and Donagay Misidjang in the 85th and 89th minutes extended Suriname’s tally to four in the dying moments of the game.
The U20 team will face Turks and Caicos on Thursday, February 29 in their final game of the U20 Qualifiers.
