By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Under 15 Belize Girls National Football Team (BGNT) finished in sixth place in the U-15 FIFA FORWARD UNCAF Championship after losing 0-5 to Nicaragua in the fifth-place game.
The match was played at the José Joaquín Coyella Fonseca Stadium in San José, Costa Rica.
The U-15 BGNT lost 0-7 to El Salvador and 0-10 to the Dominican Republic in the first round, and today completed its participation with the loss to Nicaragua.
This is the first official international tournament for the U-15 BGNT. Their next tournament will be the 2022 Concacaf Girls’ U15 Championship which has been scheduled to take place from July 31 to August 7. That tournament will feature the participation of 31 Concacaf Member Associations, plus one invited guest.
Concacaf said the regional tournament will be played at the Hillsborough County Tournament Sportsplex in Tampa, Florida, United States.
Going by the May 2022 U-17 Concacaf ranking in which Belize is 24th out of 41, the U-15 BGNT will compete in the Concacaf League C along with Caribbean countries like Anguilla, Dominica, Saint Lucia, and Turks and Caicos Islands.
In today’s second game El Salvador will face Puerto Rico for third place at 4:30 pm. The final match will feature Costa Rica playing the Dominican Republic at 7:00 pm for the championship.
