By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize today trounced the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) 5-0 in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers at the Dominican Republic.
After a hard-fought first half, Belize was able to take the lead in stoppage time on a goal by Carlos Bernardez.
Two minutes into the second half, Jesse August, who had entered the game at the resumption of play in substitution of Krisean Lopez, hit the second for the Belize Jaguars at the Estadio Panamericano in San Cristóbal.
One minute later, in the 48th minute, Bernardez struck again for the 3-0 lead.
Deshawon Nembhard converted the fourth in the 80th and Deon McCaulay nailed the final one in the 90th minute for the Belize Men’s National Team to finish off TCI with a 5-0 blowout
Belize started out with Woodrow West in goal, Asrel Sutherland, Everal Trapp, and Deshawon Nembhard in defense, Collin Westby, Jordy Polanco, Angelo Cappello and Lopez in midfield, and Deon McCaulay and Bernardez upfront.
After taking the 3-0 lead, Head Coach Dale Pelayo made four substitutions in 12 minutes. Nahjib Guerra replaced Angelo Cappello in the 56th and Jose Urbina entered for Nana Mensah in the 61st. In the 68th, Belize made its final two changes. Desmond Wade went in for Bernardez and Ean Lewis for Jordy Polanco.
Belize now has three points, the same as Nicaragua and Haiti, but the Belize Jaguars have played two games. Nicaragua and Haiti have only played once.
Turks and Caicos have lost both their games.
