French Guiana picked up a 3-1 win over Saint Kitts and Nevis on Sunday in Group A of League B in the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League at the Stade Municipal Dr. Edmard Lama in Cayenne, French Guiana.

Tyquan Terrell opened the scoring with his first international goal to put the visitors ahead in the 11th minute.

Jessy Marigard leveled things with his first goal of the tournament for French Guiana in the 19th minute, snapping a three-match goal drought in CNL for the home side.

Marigard would extend the lead for the hosts with his second goal in the 28th minute and become the nation’s leading scorer in CNL play.

Joel Sarrucco made it a 3-1 lead for French Guiana with a header in the 76th minute.

Saint Kitts and Nevis goalkeeper Julani Archibald stood out for his team with five saves on the night.

With the win, French Guiana momentarily takes second place in the group. They will advance to the qualification phase for the 2021 Gold Cup if Belize fails to get a win against Grenada.

The loss assures Saint Kitts and Nevis the last place in the group and relegation to League C.

  • Koeman furious at missed Barcelona penalties: This can't be accepted Koeman furious at missed Barcelona penalties: This can't be accepted

    Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was furious that his side missed two penalties in their Copa del Rey victory over Cornella.

    The Catalans required extra time to overcome the Segunda B side, with Ousmane Dembele and Martin Braithwaite eventually securing a 2-0 win.

    Cornella goalkeeper Ramon Juan had otherwise kept Barca at bay, making seven saves including two from the spot to deny Miralem Pjanic in the first half and Dembele in the second.

    Those missed opportunities forced Barca to go to extra time for the third game in a row - after two Supercopa de Espana draws - for the first time in their history.

    Barca have now missed five of their past eight penalties in all competitions, including their most recent four in a row, and Koeman slammed their success rate as ill-fitting of a club of their stature.

    "The most important thing is always to go through, but we can't be happy because we scored goals," he said.

    "We missed two penalties and you have to have more responsibility in these types of games.

    "Again, 120 minutes, it's an important topic because we've had three games [like that] and that's on us. We created chances and two penalties... that cannot be.

    "I can't complain about the effort but it's not only running, but also creating and being effective. It was really tough today. It cannot be and it can't be accepted.

    "You have to win matches earlier. We missed two penalties, we had chances. It cannot be that a team like Barca misses so much.

    "I don't understand it, either, because we usually have enough players who can score a penalty. It can be scary. I truly don't know why we've missed so many penalties. You can't miss two penalties as Barcelona players. This isn't serious."

    Barca are next in action away to Elche in LaLiga on Sunday.

  • Marseille confirm signing of Napoli forward Milik Marseille confirm signing of Napoli forward Milik

    Arkadiusz Milik has joined Marseille on loan from Napoli until 2022 and the forward's move could be made permanent for a reported €12million.

    Milik, 26, heads to the Ligue 1 club after four and a half seasons at Napoli, although he has not made an appearance in 2020-21.

    The Poland international scored 48 goals in 122 games in Serie A, having arrived from Ajax for a reported €35m in 2016.

    Knee injuries hampered his Napoli career, and his switch to Marseille was confirmed on Thursday.

    While Napoli said Marseille had an "obligation to make the transfer permanent", the Ligue 1 side claimed it was an option.

    Reports say a permanent deal would be an initial €8m plus €4m in bonuses.

    Milik had also been linked to Premier League sides Tottenham and Everton, but he was delighted to get the move to Marseille, who sit sixth in the Ligue 1 table – 10 points behind Paris Saint-Germain but holding a game in hand.

    "I am happy and proud to announce that I am officially a player of Olympique de Marseille, one of the most prestigious clubs in Europe," Milik wrote on Twitter.

    "I'm ready for this new adventure. Allez OM."
