"Trinidad is a football powerhouse," Jack Warner, President of the Caribbean Football Union said, and the U-20s along with their strong opponents, demonstrated this strength throughout the match. By half time the score was one all and the Nationals pounced on the chance to take the lead only one minute into the second half when they scored the winning goal.

Digicel Clinics' Head Coach, John Barnes thanked the young Trinidadian players after the match saying, "I'd like to thank you all for your hard work, discipline, diligence and enthusiasm over that past three days. I hope that you continue on this path of professionalism. Today you have proved that players such as Dwight York are not a rarity in Trinidad."
