When we talk about a program that has come a long way, we have to think of El Salvador, who have struggled at this competition in previous campaigns, failing to make it out of the group stage in two of their last three appearances before this one.
Since taking over as manager of the senior side earlier this year, Hugo Perez has turned around their fortunes dramatically, winning his first four matches in charge by a combined score of 16-0 as La Selecta qualified for the Hexagonal phase of World Cup qualifying for the first time since the 2010 campaign.
In the group stage, this team took care of business, dominating Guatemala and Trinidad and Tobago, winning both matches 2-0 and putting themselves in a favourable position where they did not have to worry about getting a result against Mexico.
El Salvador had their share of goalscoring opportunities against El Tri, but they were also sloppy in possession, giving the ball away numerous times, and they were fortunate that the Mexicans only punished them one time over the 90 minutes.
If they want to progress beyond the last eight of this tournament, they will need to eliminate those mistakes against a Qatari side who are averaging three goals a game in this competition so far.
El Salvador will be familiar with Qatar heading into their quarter-final duel this weekend, having faced them in their final warm-up match before this tournament began, losing 1-0.
