Belize up 3-1
VAMOSSS!!! DALE DALE DALE E MAREA AZUL DALEEE!!! DALELOO!!!!!!!
Gols from Honduran League, Harrison Roches and Elroy Kuylen.
Papa Chelato dale!
I was really starting to wonder about Belize there for a moment I know they have some problems at the moment but they should still win big today.
Belize 5 - Montserrat 1, 85'. Montserrat will be eliminated in Belize on June 19.
edit - Jay Lee Hodgson scores again for Montserrat, 5-2 86'
those half time speeches man
I'm actually surprised shots get passed Shane Orio.. dude is a really solid GK.
Especially for Marathon.
full time, 5-2 Belize. Deon McCauley with a hat trick. 4 Belize goals from 50' to 83'.
Belize's first win since Feb. 2008 and a 3-1 qualfier win vs. St. Kitts that led to being paired with Mexico.
http://www.concacaf.com/page/WCQ/NewsDetail/0,,12813~2378342,00.html says "ZURICH, Switzerland - The second leg of the World Cup qualifier between Belize and Montserrat scheduled for Sunday in Belmopan has been postponed due to FIFA's suspension of the Belizean soccer federation because of continued interference from the government, FIFA said Friday." FIFA wrote http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/media/newsid=1454212/index.html.
Edit: Imagine if Montserrat plays in the First Group Stage, plays their home games in Trinidad and Tobago, and is drawn in the same group as Trinidad and Tobago.
They would probably look for a different site, or just accept the fact that it won't make a difference where they play...
For that matter, why do they play their home games in T&T? That's one of the farthest-away islands in the Caribbean. Antigua and Puerto Rico are closer, for example.
If Montserrat advances, is there any way to guess if it could afford traveling to i.e. Canada, Guatemala and Nicaragua?
Hopefully, the new home stadium will be ready? Maybe having three true home games could offset some of the funds, but, then again,even if the whole island showed up, 4,000 tickets doesn't do much.
A good sign is Montserrat competing in Caribbean Cups in '04 and '10 when some of the super-minnows decline, but that's 3 games in 5-6 days in 1 site.
Is there a precident for FIFA helping a national team's expenses in such a situation? I propose 1-2 of those $40,000 envelopes going to a much better use.
They could do what Belize did when they had to play Canada in WC2006 qualifying. Belize couldn't host due to "a lack of infrastructure" so they allowed Canada to host both legs (at Richardson Stadium in Kingston, Ontario) and split the money with Canada. I recall reading that each FA walked away with about $140,000 which I suspect isn't an insignificant sum for a small federation like Belize's.
It is strange. Antigua and St. Kitts & Nevis are literally next door.
Yes, and now that you mention it I remember the Belize "home game" vs. Mexico in Houston during the second round of 2010 WCQ. Belize gets all the crappy luck.
Great idea though if the money the minnow federation makes goes to good, honest use.

Will Bahamas' new national stadium be ready for use?
Yeah its ready
Bahamas have several players in overseas
can Football Manager researchers get their data ?
there are 3 or 4 Bahamas players only in FM...
Any stream for tonight's Virgin duel ?
I was searching stream for yesterday's match, spent like half an hour on searching and found none. Would be grateful if someone could provide one for today.
I don't think it is being televised.
EDIT: Just seen the two line-ups, I expect a comprehensive USVI victory.
USVI up one nothing thanks to Alderman Lesmond, who apparently plays some cricket as well.
