By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize Men’s National Football Team (BMNT) travel to French Guiana on Saturday, June 11 to arrive on Monday, June 13, for the final match this year in the Concacaf Nations League B against French Guiana on Tuesday, June 14.
The BMNT fly today to Miami where they will overnight and board a second flight to Martinique on Sunday. Finally on Monday, they fly to Cayenne.
The game will be played at the Dr. Edmard Lama Municipal Stadium in Cayenne at 1:00 pm on Tuesday.
After the game, the BMNT then leaves French Guiana on Wednesday, June 15, to arrive here on Friday, June 17.
With the 1-1 draw at the FFB Stadium on Thursday, coupled with the 1-1 draw between the Dominican Republic and Guatemala in Santo Domingo, French Guiana lead the group with seven points. Guatemala and the Dominican Republic have four points each and Belize have one.
In the other Group D match, Guatemala will host the Dominican Republic on Monday.
Right now, all teams have three games remaining but after their fourth game, the fifth and sixth will be played until March 2023.
According to the initial schedule Belize should host Guatemala at 4:00 pm at the FFB Stadium on Friday, March 24, 2023, before travelling to take on the Dominican Republic on Monday, March 27 at the Félix Sánchez Olympic Stadium in Santo Domingo.
The idea is not to finish in last place as that team will be relegated to Concacaf League C. It means that Belize better beat French Guiana on Tuesday, otherwise the battle will be uphill next year. Beating French Guiana is easier said than done judging by the way the Guianese dominated action in Belmopan. But it’s not an impossible task.
