Canada Defeats Belize 3-0 in World Cup Qualifier

The Jaguars played against the Canadian team this evening at the BMO Stadium in Toronto. The game ended a while ago with the Canadian team penetrating the Belize defense and securing three goals, while the Jaguars were only able to make one attempt to make it on the scoreboard. After ninety minutes of play, the Jaguars remained scoreless. Here’s a recap with Isani Cayetano.

 

Isani Cayetano, Reporting

The Canucks have successfully taken game one of a home and away series against the Jaguars at BMO Field in Toronto this evening.  A decisive three – nil victory places the Canadian national team ahead of Belize in the third round of World Cup qualifiers.  We begin with the first goal scored by veteran midfielder Will Johnson at the twenty-fifth minute of regulation time.  He goes deep inside the in-zone where goalkeeper Woodrow West does his best to deflect the deadly attempt.  But West can only do so much to thwart the inevitable.  Despite playing a somewhat solid defensive game, the first half saw the Canucks attacking the goal viciously on a majority of their possessions.  Returning in the second half, Johnson would once again unload on the Jaguars, scoring a second goal in the sixty fourth minute of play.  Where were the Jaguars and why were they not as offensive in their possession of the ball?  That’s a question they will have to answer upon returning to Belize for Tuesday’s home game.  Of a total of thirty-five possessions and attempts, the Canadians were able to convert three times; the third goal being scored at the ninetieth minute.  The Canucks took six unsuccessful corner kicks while the Jaguars remained scoreless.  Game Two is set for Tuesday September eight at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan where Belize is in dire need of scoring a minimum of three goals against Canada, before going to extra time and penalties in order to advance.
