Bermuda had the first shot of the game early in the first half,and enjoyed the better of the play in the early stages that even saw Spence have a shot off the crossbar.

After a short water break, Cuba took the lead, a cross from the right side was tapped in from close range, and Bermuda replied immediately with a goal from Jai Bean. The teams went to the break deadlocked at 1 – 1.

The second half saw Bermuda take the game to Cuba, looking for a go ahead goal, with Bean shooting over the crossbar, but it was Cuba who found the breakthrough and again it came from a cross and another simple tap in.

Bermuda made a change in the 56th minute with Nesbitt replacing Zuill, and in the final minutes of the match Bermuda earned a free kick on the edge of the box, but the Cuba goalkeeper was able to keep the shot out and thus earned Cuba the 2 – 1 win.
