- Alex Roldan (81')
- Joaquín Rivas (90'+6')
Alex Roldan, who plays for the Seattle Sounders FC in MLS, scored in the 81st minute, and Joaquin Rivas iced the victory in the sixth minute of second-half stoppage time. Walmer Martinez made one save in shutting down Guatemala, which only entered the Gold Cup when Curacao was dropped on Friday due to a high number of COVID-19 cases.
El Salvador dominated the match, taking 21 shots to four for Guatemala, and leading in shots on goal, 6-1. It also led heavily in possession time 69% to 31%.
