The possibilities after the game against the USA

While we are seeking a favorable outcome against the leviathan, a loss this early in the competition would not necessarily spell doom for team captain, Shane Orio, and the National ‘A’ Selection.  In fact, there are two other matches lined up following tonight’s showdown.  Belize is scheduled to play against Costa Rica on Saturday and Cuba next Tuesday.  Depending on their performance, the Jaguars may advance to another round in the regional tournament.  F.F.B. President Ruperto Vicente breaks down the possibilities.

 

Ruperto Vicente, President, F.F.B.

“If we lose tonight, it is not the end for us. We gotta keep our game close, very close. If we lose tonight, we gotta lose by one-nil maybe or two-one. But we had other games coming up ahead of us; we have Costa Rica and we have Cuba. So we can still qualify to the other rounds of competition with those two games. So if we should suffer a loss tonight, it is not the end of the tournament for us; we have other opportunities.”

“And if we have the big W?”

“If we win, [laughs] I will probably stay here tomorrow. I will not go home tomorrow. I will probably stay here. Even, we would want Belize to celebrate with us. That’s the feeling I have if we win tonight which I am sure we can; even if we secure a draw, I want Belizeans to jump up on the streets because by just being here William is already a win for us. By winning tonight’s game or drawing tonight’s game will be an extra boost for our Belizean football and we want Belizeans to celebrate that.”
