Trinidad and Tobago's Futsal men went down 3-2 to Curacao in their third and final group phase match of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) qualifiers on Sunday in Cuba. T&T got their goals from Ishmael Daniel and Jerwyn Balthazar.

The result meant that T&T finished second in the four-team group with six points behind Curacao (nine points) and they failed to gain an automatic spot to the CONCACAF final round of World qualifiers in May.

CFU rules for this tournament allowed only the first placed team from the two groups to qualify automatically for CONCACAF instead of the top two teams from each group advancing to a semi-final round and then a final.
