Like El Salvador before it, Guatemala proved to be a tough opponent with temperatures in the high 20s Celsius. Both teams had good scoring chances in a first half that saw Canada outshoot Guatemala 7-6, with the Central Americans holding a 6-4 edge in shots on target.

Guatemala came close in the ninth minute with goalkeeper Kayza Massey making a good save off a free kick from just outside the penalty box. It was Canada's turn in the 20th minute with a diving Ashley Avalos getting a hand to Maya Ladhani's powerful free kick from distance.

Massey tipped a Marcela Anzueto free kick off the crossbar in the 43rd minute. A Canadian shot went just wide in first half-stoppage time.
