Valiant effort by Team Belize in Costa Rica

The highly anticipated football match between Belize and Honduras for the 2013 Copa Centro Americana was broadcasted live on this station. The Belize national “A” selection team and its strong defense took on the returning champs, Honduras. Team Belize held its ground, but at the sixty-seventh minute, its goal was penetrated by Honduran team. It was a valiant effort as it is the first time that Belize has qualified in the tournament and will move on to the Gold Cup Games slated for July in the U.S. Sportscaster James Adderley accompanied by Football Federation of Belize Executive Member, Marlon Kuylen, have been following the game and join me with a recap of the game.

On Sunday, Team Belize will play against the losing team from the match between Costa Rica and El Salvador to determine third and fourth placements.

    I couldn’t be more prouder of OUR team today, yes dey held off the reigning champions n yes we lost but we can hold our heads high cz dey(Honduras) only managed to score 1 goal. Dat shows the capability our country has to offer n we’re jst a semi-pro team while the majority if not all of Honduras’ team are professionals. Mr Kuylen, wen are Official Belize Football jerseys gonna be on sale??????????????


    hope u guys win the gold cup!!!


    Congratulations to the Belize National football team. Everyone is talking about how good the Belize National team played. Let’s hope that the Football Federation of Belize continues the process that Leroy Sherrier has began; a great football team is not made overnight. In a couple of years we can have an even better team.

    Held its ground but the goal was penetrated by Honduras in the 67th minute? Then what we have here is failure to mission assigned!
