One big desire for these three teams

In the first full week of the new year starts the first official qualifying mini-tournament for 2017. Ato Boldon stadium in Couva, Trinidad and Tobago will be the host to three matches only that will determine the last traveler from (probably) the Caribbean region into the Gold cup.
A total of 25 teams have taken part in the Caribbean cup qualification process which started back in March. Now we have come to the last six that will try to win the competition and be named as a fifth place play off winner. Matches will be played every second day local time, and it should look like this:

05 January, Thursday at 00.00 CET: Trinidad and Tobago - Suriname.

07 January, Saturday at 00.00 CET: Suriname - Haiti.

08 January, Sunday at 22.00 CET: Haiti - Trinidad and Tobago.

However the victor will have to face the fifth place team from another tournament, the Copa Centroamericana which starts the following week in Panama City, Panama. The additional game winner will participate as the twelfth team that took the final spot for the main event - CONCACAF Gold cup 2017.
