Cuco Martina tasted success with Curaçao in the second game of Caribbean Cup qualification, as they beat Dominican Republic 2-1.

Saints defender Martina captained his side, as they picked up a crucial three points in their bid to qualify for next year's Caribbean Cup.

After a goalless first half, Curaçao took the lead through Gino Von Ressel, but Edipo Encarnacion looked to have earned a point for Dominican Republic with just over ten minutes remaining.

Shortly after though, Curaçao scored a controversial winner as Felitciano Zschusschen netted in the 81st minute.

That goal proved to be enough for Martina and his teammates, who will now await the result of Dominican Republic's clash with Barbados to discover whether they will advance to to the second round of qualifying.
