Dededo: There is everything to play for when Guam take on Bhutan in the second leg of their FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023 Preliminary Joint Qualification tie at the Guam FA Field on Tuesday.
An equally balanced first leg saw Bhutan take a slender lead going into Tuesday's match, thanks to Tshering Dorji's first half strike.
Guam head coach Karl Dodd has called on his players to show more determination in the return leg if they want to play in the next stage of the Asian Qualifiers.
He is also counting on home comforts to take Guam through.
"The weather is different in Guam, there’s no altitude and the temperature is hot. It is about our players stepping up now. We can’t train for this moment and work this hard and freeze up,” said Dodd in his summary of what his team had to do after the first leg.

Bhutan's chances don't only depend on the conditions but also how they recover from the gruelling trip from Ulaanbaatar to Dededo.
Bhutan head coach Pema Dorji admitted after the first leg that he had been hoping for a more comfortable lead.
"I will tell my players to stay focused as there is still one match to go. We have a slight advantage going into the return leg and anything can happen so it is important that our concentration level is high," said Dorji.
