Watch: El Salvador score after open-goal miss from two yards in Gold Cup win

After a wacky buildup, California-raised Walmer Martinez scored El Salvador's late goal in a 2-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago that clinched a knockout-stage spot for Coach Hugo Perez's team. Martinez finished from very close range after Amando Moreno's shot was saved by T&T goalkeeper Nicklas Frenderup, but deflected off both posts, Juan Carlos Portillo missed the open goal from two yards out.
