Jairo Henriquez and Walmer Martinez were on target as El Salvador progressed to the next round of the Gold Cup with their second win from two matches.
In Frisco, Texas, at the ground of Major League Soccer’s FC Dallas, goals from Jairo Henriquez and Walmer Martinez lifted El Salvador to a second straight victory to ensure they will move on from Group A.
Midfielder Henriquez opened the scoring on the half-hour mark with an outstanding solo effort, making a crisp turn and firing a shot from outside the area that skimmed the far post on its way into the net.
Trinidad and Tobago pressed for the equalizer in the second half but could not find it and a minute into second-half injury time Martinez sealed it when he slotted in a rebound.
Elsewhere in the group, Mexico bounced back from a draw against Trinidad and Tobago in their tournament opener with a 3-0 victory against Guatemala.
