Cornell Glen scored in the seventh minute as Trinidad and Tobago secured a 1-0 victory over El Salvador on Wednesday in a 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifying match.

Trinidad and Tobago notched their first victory in the six-nation final qualifying group in the North and Central America and Caribbean region. They remain in last place, but now trail fifth-placed El Salvador only on goal difference.

The top three teams from the group advance directly to South Africa 2010 while the fourth-placed team plays off for a berth against a team from South America. Group leaders Costa Rica were taking on Honduras later in the evening while Mexico defeated USA 2-1 at the Estadio Azteca in earlier action.
