By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize beat St. Kitts and Nevis, winners of Group A in the CWU17 Qualifying tournament, 1-0 in a friendly match in Bradenton, Florida, on Sunday, October 24, 2021.
Belize and St. Kitts & Nevis had already completed their two games at the qualifying tournament, so they played a friendly match.
Marjorie Sanchez scored Belize’s goal in the first half.
Curacao beat Barbados 2-0 in the final Group B match and qualified to the CWU17 Championship a top Group B with six points.
Belize finished in second position in the group having defeated Barbados 2-1 on Friday.
In Group A, St. Kitts and Nevis had already claimed the Group with two wins. Suriname got second place on a 3-1 win over the US Virgin Islands.
The tournament resumes on Thursday, October 28, with Group C games featuring Anguilla against Guyana and Honduras taking on Turks and Caicos Islands. The other group C games will be played on Saturday, October 30, and Monday, November 1.
Group C’s winner, along with Curacao and St. Kitts and Nevis, will qualify to the 2022 CWU17. Concacaf said the best second-place team among Belize, Suriname and the second-place team from Group C will earn the fourth and final spot to the 2022 CWU17. 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).
Going by that, Belize is already out, because Suriname have a better record. Both teams were in three-team groups finishing with three points from two games each. Suriname, however, have a 3-3 goal record to Belize’s 3-4. So, Suriname have a better standing. They only have to wait for November 1 to see if they have a better record that Group C’s second-place team.
The 2022 CWU17 Championship which features 16 teams is scheduled to take place in January.
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.
