The Guatemalan national team had a remarkable performance at the World Cup before reaching the semi-finals of the tournament after leaving national teams such as Canada and Mexico on the way.

known to all, What those under the leadership of Mexican coach Rafael Loredo did was enough to secure one of the 24 places for the FIFA U-20 World Cup to be held in Indonesia in 2023..

However, theFor CONCACAF World Cup held in Honduras not only gave seats to the U-20 World Cup, but also As a qualifier for the following Olympic Games:

  • Central American and Caribbean Games in San Salvador 2023
  • Santiago Pan American Games 2023
  • 2024 Paris Olympics

The Guatemalan national team earned two of these four tickets and here we explain why:

World Cup Indonesia 2023

Santiago Pan American Games 2023

The Guatemalan national team failed to qualify for the Pan-American Games, as the rating criteria were best in Central America, best in the Caribbean and best in North America, as well as champion.

So the Pan American Games tickets were as follows:

  • United States (best of North America)
  • Honduras (Best of Central America)*
  • Dominican Republic (best in the Caribbean)
  • Last place: If the United States were champions, Mexico would qualify, and if the Dominican Republic would win, Jamaica would go.

Why is Honduras going and not Guatemala? Because of the difference in points achieved, Honduras had 15 points throughout the tournament and 9 Guatemala 9, so the ticket goes to Honduras.

2024 Paris Olympics

The tournament offered two Olympic Games quotas, which were the finalists: the United States and the Dominican Republic.
