Go Belize!! FFB announces final 18 National Team players

Yesterday, the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) released the final eighteen (18) player list for the UNCAF U-16 Championship 2013 which will be hosted in Belize at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan next week, with games daily from Monday to Friday, November 18 – 22.

Six of the seven Central American countries are participating in the tournament (Panama withdrew), namely Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

On October 24, the FFB released a list of 26 players who were reportedly in camp to prepare for the upcoming tournament. That list has been reduced to the final 18 who will represent the Jewel in next week’s UNCAF U-16 Championship.

Technical Staff: Head Coach – Renan Couoh; Assistant Coach – Alex Norales; Goalkeeper Coach – Kent Gabourel; Physical Trainer – Dennis Serano; Physiotherapist – Bertha Gonzalez; Doctor – Alain Gonzalez; Equipment Manager – Herbert Trapp.

The tournament will not involve any playoff, but will follow a simple points system (La Liga style), with the winner being determined by total points received and, if necessary, goal difference and total goals scored.

There will be 3 games daily, beginning at 2:00 p.m., with Belize playing the last game each day starting at 7:00 p.m. Go, Belize Baby Jaguars!!
