Jaguars drop first game in Canada

Friday, 04 September 2015. Chrisbert Garcia Reporting: The Belize Jaguars faced off against Canada’s National Football team on Friday evening starting shortly after 5:30 p.m.

The first half of the game saw Canada dominating control of the ball, going into half time leading the tally 1-0 as the Belize side went back to playing the strictly defensive style of football that we were once accustomed to see them play.Belize-Jaguars-2

When the second half of the game began, it didn’t take Canada too long to score another goal against the Jaguars, going up 2-0.

As the game progressed, the Jaguars showed glimpses of aggression, getting into the Canadian box a few times but not creating any real opportunities for star striker Deon McCaulay or any other Jaguar to score.

The Canadians struck again in the 90th minute off a corner kick, shortly after goal keeper, Woodrow West, made a spectacular save.

When the final whistle blew, a defeated Belizean National team walked off the field with a 3-0 loss. A return match will be played at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan on Tuesday, September 8th, where the Jaguars will need to win by a margin of 4 goals to advance into the next round of the World Cup Qualifiers.
