Post-Cuba game wrap up with players

While the focus has been on the team captain, the coach and the goalkeepers, the other players on the team also had their post-game comments.

“I feel bad because we lost four to zero after coming off a very good game with Costa Rica. Having the key players in lineup that played that game and helped us to play a good game but it feels bad to lose four to zero. I had opportunities that I could have taken advantage of and I didn’t take advantage and that’s how football goes sometimes. I think we were poor in that today because we had a bunch of opportunities and we didn’t make use of it. But Cuba came in and they made use of their opportunities and they ended up winning the game. I just hope that some of us get a contract somewhere to play in some kind of professional team and uplift our self. I hope that the football in Belize stays up and we learn from this experience and we just try to make it better the next time we come out and play.”

“I just feel like it’s a disappointment of course because we didn’t take our opportunities and they did and now they are moving on to the next round. You can’t win everything but we just had to take our chances. I created a couple chances but we didn’t take advantage of it. I don’t think that I played to my full potential and I still think that I can grow. I am still only twenty years old and I still have a lot more ahead of me. I just feel like playing over here each and every day I am going to learn something new. Learn different tactics and whatever I can implement when I can come back and play for Belize. Make everyone better; that’s what we have to move on with.”

“Fi start with I wah say that da wa learning experience. Da like wa baby it has to creep before it walk. So I think that we need fi experience this fi mek we get better and this da the first time fi we da this stage. At the end of the day I still think we could have done even better. Just a lot of little coaching things and other lee things that made us fall so short. It wasn’t a sense of frustration, I just the push my all and I think it just end up like that because if you really go over the game and see the way how I play I think I give more than what I had in me and sometime that is how football is played. I think we need a lotta help and we need to start much earlier. I just hope uno noh give up pan we because this is our first time here; when we go to Nation’s Cup we use to always take a lot and now we jump that hump we qualified to reach this stage. Definatley when we come back we wa do much better.”



Earlier today, the Minister of State for Sports, Herman Longsworth said in a press release that he was proud of the jaguars.
