Belize exits CONCACAF Women U-20 Qualifiers in Nicaragua

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. June 22, 2017–Our Belize National Women U-20 squad was expected back home today from Nicaragua, after losing, 10-0, to Costa Rica on Tuesday in the CONCACAF Women U-20 Qualifiers. According to reports gleaned from Futbol24.com, they had lost the Group 1 opener on Sunday to hosts Nicaragua, 5-1; so that puts Belize out of contention in the Qualifiers. Nicaragua and Costa Rica from Group 1, who complete Group 1 play against each other later today, will then join the top 2 teams from Group 2, El Salvador and Honduras, in the classification stage, where the winners of one group play the runners-up of the other group, with the two winners then qualifying as the Central American representatives for the final CONCACAF Women U-20 tournament in 2018.

In results so far in the Women U-20 Qualifiers: June 18 – Nicaragua 5:1 Belize; Panama 0:2 Honduras; June 20 – Belize 0:10 Costa Rica; Honduras 1:4 El Salvador; June 22 – El Salvador 1:0 Panama; Nicaragua vs Costa Rica (tonight).

(Being suspended by FIFA, Guatemala did not participate in these Qualifiers.)
