By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The U17 Belize Women’s National Football Team (U17 BWNT) fell 3-1 to Curaçao in the first game of the 2021 CWU17 Qualifying tournament in Bradenton, Florida today.
Khalydia Velasquez scored Belize’s only goal in a mad scramble in front of the goal in the 54th minute.
Draynishaina (44’ and 90’+ 2) and July Thielman (45’+2) scored for Curaçao.
Belize is in Group B along with Curaçao and Barbados. Our next game is against Barbados on Friday, October 22, at 1:10 pm (Belize time). Curaçao and Barbados play on Sunday at the same time
In the first game of the tournament today, Saint Kitts and Nevis walked over US Virgin Islands 4-1 in Group A earlier today.
The tournament will qualify the group winners and the best ranked 2nd place team to the 2022 Concacaf Women’s U-17 Championship (CWU17), so our girls will have a win over Barbados if they are to have any hopes of qualifying.
CONCACAF said the best second-place team will be determined using a weighted points system (total number of points divided by the number of matches played).
The groups are comprised in the following manner:
Group A: Saint Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, US Virgin Islands, and Suriname
Group B: Barbados, Curaçao and Belize
Group C: Honduras, Anguilla, Guyana, and Turks and Caicos Islands
The 2022 CWU17 is scheduled to take place in January. The top-ranked 16 teams participating in the Group Stage of the Championship will be divided into four groups. After round-robin play, the top three teams in each group will advance to the Round of 16, joining the four teams from the Qualifiers.
The top three teams from the 2022 CWU17 will qualify for the 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup which is scheduled to be played in India between October 11-30, 2022.
