Yes. Two NT`s one in USA and one in Japan.
They also played Nicaragua on 4. September in USA.
The team in USA is a bit weaker "B" team . FIFA do not recognize the match against El Salvador as "A" match, though the match against Nicaragua is still a "A" match.

3 Guatemalan international players were banned for life cos of match fixing!
The players were involved in fixing Guatemala friendlies against Venezuela in June 2011 and Costa Rica in May 2012.

Guillermo Ramirez has over 100 caps, I wonder how many other times he was involved in such activities.
I watched South Africa 5-0 Guatemala in 2010, from what I saw I was strongly suspicious that that match was also fixed.

I want to share a couple of legendary documents celebrating the most important win for the Guatemalan football: their triumph at the 1967 Concacaf Championship.
An article from the newspaper Prensa Libre from March 20, 1967

And a stamp issued in that period:

Wow, spectacular! 



I had been searching for this trophy for a long time! I also contacted the Guatemalan FA a couple of times, but without success. The trophy was of the same model awarded to Mexico in 1965.My favourite one still remains the Gabriel Kafaty trophy awarded to Canada in 1985.

Directly from Twitter, a spectacular photo of the CONCACAF Championship trophy conquered by Guatemala in 1967. That was the first and only continental triumph for "Los Chapines"

Three weeks ago, Guatemala celebrated the 50th anniversary of their triumph in the CONCACAF Championship. A spectacular picture taken from Twitter showing the squad with the trophy.
