    I played or trialed with UMass, Harrowboro(ENG), Walsall(ENG), Cracovia (POL), Asan(KOR) and played under an assumed name with a few others (visa issues). Football wasn't really worth living in crappy conditions for me so, I came back home and definitely feel I made the right decision!

    Watching it from home in a comfortable couch is much better than getting yelled at and getting threatened all the time.

    Republic of Nicaragua​



    Nicaragua is the largest state in Central America with an area of 130,000km (the size of England or slightly smaller than the state of New York). The population is the 4th largest Central American population topping out at 5.89 Million people. Since the land is so big they are the least densely population in Central America. The capitol is Managua which is also the Largest City. Nicaragua has a beautiful Caribbean Coast to its East and the Pacific coast on the West. Nicaragua borders Honduras to its North and Costa Rica to its south. Nicaragua is the second poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, only Haiti is poorer.
    Nicaragua is better known as a baseball-playing nation. Nicaragua with five runner-up finishes in the Baseball World Cup. Nicaragua did not even try to qualify for the World Cup until the USA hosted the World Cup in 1994. We can see that hosting the World Cup can influence even other federations with in your own confederation. Football is catching on with they younger generation. Nicaragua national football team just earned its first major soccer honor when it qualified for the Gold Cup by beating Guatemala 2-0. It was Nicaragua’s first victory over Guatemala, a former Central American champion, in 17 tries. It has been over 40 years since they beat Guatemala.

    There is a new scene of optimism now with in Nicaragua. Recently Fifa has committed $10 Million to develop the domestic leagues in CONCACAF. There are 11 nations that will split this money over 2 years. The money is supposed to develop the Domestic league. It is also will invest into each club to make the leagues more competitive. The clubs in turn have to show some progress in developing its youth system. This is not a lot of money however when you have no money any money is huge.
    The top domestic league is called Primera Division of Nicaragua. It has 10 teams. The league does have regulation with 2 teams dropping to a lower league. Nicaragua does have a dynasty in Diriange FC. Diriange FC play in the City of Diriamba. Diriamba is a mountain town located on Nicaragua West coast. Diriamba is about 1 hour from Managua. Diriange FC is a 26-time Nicaraguan league champion and they play in the second largest stadium with a capacity of 7,500. Diriange FC chief rival is six-time champion Real Esteli. Real Esteli plays in their own stadium Estadio Independencia that holds 4,800. Presently there are 8 teams that can match Diriange FC on the field. The national team use to be mostly comprised from Diriange FC players but now they come from many different clubs. Last year Real Esteli was representing Nicaragua in the CONCACAF Champions League. They could not play any games with in Nicaragua since no fields meet FIFA regulations. The University has donated land for the national team to build a soccer stadium that will meet FIFA requirements. FIFA paid the first phase that cost $1.2 Million dollars. The artificial field was installed in March and the first phase will have 3,000 spectators. This would allow a Club team like Real Esteli to host a Champions League game on Nicaraguan soil. This would be a huge boost to the league and marketing for the Nicaraguan top league. The stadium would also provide a field for the selected national team to practice before the start of the Gold Cup 2009. The construction is 3 phases and the completed project is supposed to hold 30,000 spectators and complete in four years. This national stadium will provide a huge boost to the image of Nicaragua soccer.
    If a nation could be Nicaragua rival it would be Panama. They have won 4 games while losing 11 against Panama. This is the best record Nicaragua has against any nation.

    Over 40 years?? I don't think so because Nicaragua had never beaten us before until this year.

    I think it's just the fact that it's poorly worded as to why their is confusion over that statement. If you read the line directly before the one you quoted, it says...

    So obviously they agree with you that they have never beaten them before.

    My guess is what they ment to say was "It has been over 30 years since they beat Guatemala at any level".

    This would make much more sence considering they did beat you a few times in the 70's during the Central American and Carribean Games.
