England football star David Beckham and the LA Galaxy will be going to Puerto Rico.
The Puerto Rico Islanders beat Antigua Barracuda 2-0 this evening at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella to secure the final CONCACAF Club Championship spot at stake.
The Islanders lifted the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) crown for the past two seasons but had to settle for a third place play off after the Puerto Ricans were spanked 4-1 by W Connection on Tuesday.
W Connection and Neal & Massy Caledonia AIA contest the CFU Club Championship final from 8 pm tonight at the same venue.
Their Antiguan counterparts were not nearly as dangerous.
Barracuda hitman Peter Byers spanked one effort off the bar but the Antiguan team, although organised and purposeful, could not pierce the Islanders’ backline.
Joshua Hansen, who scored Islanders’ consolation item against Connection, put the Puerto Rican team ahead in the first half and a successful penalty from diminutive striker Jonathan Fana, six minutes after the interval, ensured another CONCACAF adventure for his club.
The Islanders will now face United States’ Major League Soccer (MLS) champs LA Galaxy and El Salvador’s Isidro Metapan in the next group stage.
