CONCACAF hails defense, Deon as keys to Belize’s success

Posted: Tuesday, September 3, 2019. 4:58 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: With a trip to the big time on the line, what does Belize need to succeed in CONCACAF Nations League B, Group A?

It comes down to two “D’s” – defense, and Deon, as in McCauley. And maybe Krisean Lopez too.

While that seems to discount the rest of the Jaguars, remember these facts: Belize, with three goals conceded, had the best defensive record of the teams outside of the qualifying top ten aside of Suriname. However, agonizing losses to Montserrat (1-0) and Guyana (2-1) away make that pill difficult to swallow.

CONCACAF also points out that three of Belize’s four qualifying matches were decided by a single goal – apart from the losses, the other was a 1-0 win over Puerto Rico.

As for Deon, he is and remains Belize’s all-time top scorer, his latest coming against St. Vincent and the Grenadines just this past Sunday. Lopez bagged his first two international goals against Bahamas and is hungry for more.

In Group A, the Jaguars are grouped with French Guiana, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Grenada, which should all provide sturdy tests.

“If that dynamic duo can get firing and the top-notch defensive play remains intact, Belize will have reason to believe in League B,” CONCACAF concludes. We’ll find out starting on Wednesday against French Guiana.
