The final round of matches in the second round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying might as well not be played, as all the teams to advance are now known.
The six teams to secure their passage into the third round of qualifying were finalized on Friday, with Canada being one of the teams to secure its passage. Canada was held to a scoreless draw on the road by Saint Kitts and Nevis, but the result was good enough to give the Canucks first place in Group D.
Antigua and Barbuda also pushed through to the next round with a 1-0 victory over second-place Haiti in Group F. The win places Antigua and Barbuda in Group A of the third round along with the United States, Jamaica and Guatemala.
One team that was not celebrating at the end of its game was Trinidad and Tobago. The Soca Warriors suffered a 2-1 defeat to Guyana in Group B, a result that ended Trinidad and Tobago's dreams of reaching the 2014 World Cup.
Here's a full recap of Friday's results as well as the groups for the next round:
Dominican Republic 4-0 Cayman Islands
Suriname 1-3 El Salvador
Bermuda 2-1 Barbados
Guyana 2-1 Trinidad and Tobago
Nicaragua 1-0 Dominica
St. Kitts and Nevis 0-0 Canada
