By Rubén Morales Iglesias: No flights were available for Belize Men’s National Football Team (BMNT) to travel to Nicaragua for their World Cup qualifier against Nicaragua on June 4, said the Football Federation of Belize (FFB), so the BMNT has to trek it by road.
The FFB said the BMNT will leave Belize on Sunday traveling through Guatemala and Honduras.
“The FFB tried by all means, tried several agents, but could not get a flight for the entire team to Nicaragua,” said Head Coach Dale Pelayo.
“The only flight would have been for gameday, next Friday, so we have to go by road.”
Tony Rocha and Michael Salazar traveling from the United States were able to book individual flights and will be joining the team in Nicaragua said Pelayo.
The BMNT went into full camp on Monday at the FFB Headquarters in Belmopan.
