By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Beach football fields are hard to find in Belize, so the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) made its own beach football field for the Belize Men’s National Beach Soccer Team (BMNBST) to train.
The field was built last week at the FFB headquarters in Belmopan. After digging up the hard surface the FFB had truckloads of beach sand thrown over the big rectangular hole for the players to be able to train at the FFB headquarters.
Before this, the FFB had to take the team to Hopkins to train and it turned up very costly. At the FFB headquarters, the BMNBST has all the necessary facilities for training from the pitch to dressing rooms to accommodations, plus it’s centrally located.
Just recently the BMNBST was called to camp to train for the Concacaf World Cup qualifiers in Alajuela, Costa Rica from May 17-23, 2021.
Eleven teams are participating in three groups. The top two teams qualify to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.
Belize is in Group A. We play against Mexico on May 17 and against Panama on May 18.
The team is comprised of goalkeepers Rugerri Trejo and Brenton Garcia, defenders Jermain Jones, Carlos Bent, Sean Mas, Brandon Jones, and Sean Caliz, midfielders Devaney Tillett, Raymond Ramos, Devin Guzman, and Evan Mariano, and striker Marlon Meza.
Head coach is Dennis Serano. He is assisted by Ervin Casimiro and goalkeeper coach Victor Orellano. The technical staff is completed by equipment manager Herbert Trapp, doctor David Pacheco, physiotherapist Aba Ben and technical director Philip Marin.
Group B is comprised of El Salvador, Bahamas, Guatemala, and Dominican Republic
Group C is made up of United States, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turks and Caicos Islands
The BMNBST travels to Costa Rica on May 14.
