When Hart took out Guerra for Plaza he weakened the midfield and Guatemala dominated after.

Secondly, Abu Bakr should not be our starting center back. His pace is bad.

David is also vernarable, if you notice Guatemala was mostly coming down his side.
Other than that, team played good.

In this game we went three goals up because we pressed up top won the ball in that place and finished . The set play was well orchestrated; and the penetration from the flanks was deep. We must be mindful that a lot of work goes into attacking football. To protect a lead in the second half requires the work of hard pressing and ball winning in the midfield. The one defender Mr Bakr is physically not able to play his normal role and should be left out for now.
More communication by the goal keeper is needed.

I would have pulled David back in Defence , removed Bakr and brought in Plaza.

are you kidding? i thought david was our best defender. he has speed and rarely makes errant passes compared to cyrus and batau who tries to do too much instead of playing the simple pass. the attack came more on david side maybe because their speedier winger was on that right wing of attack, but i don't think they did so because they sense a weakness in david. that lad was the reason we scored so many goals because he allowed j.jones the freedom to press up high as opposed to constantly assisting in defensive duties.

go back and watch the game and see the heavy input of mr bakar. he cleared most of the long airballs that would have normally missed a shorter defender like julius james.  bakar maybe slow but he reads the game really well. sometimes speed isn't every thing in defending. a lot of the times bakar was hung out to dry by batau and hyland who was caught out of position on many occasions including the goal we conceded.
