El Salvador Dropped From CONCACAF Under-20s

NEW YORK (AP) - El Salvador has been dropped from the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship after using an ineligible player.

The regional governing body said Tuesday that El Salvador has forfeited its matches in the UNCAF Central American qualifying and will be replaced by Costa Rica.

Dustin Corea, who scored both goals in El Salvador's 2-1 aggregate playoff victory over Costa Rica, played for the United States at the 2009 CONCACAF Under-17 tournament and had not changed affiliation under FIFA's regulations.

CONCACAF concluded Salvador didn't intentionally field an ineligible player but still had to forfeit any matches he played in.
