By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Costa Rica won the Under 15 FIFA FORWARD UNCAF Championship in which the U-15 Belize Girls National Football Team (BGNT) finished in sixth place.

Costa Rica defeated the Dominican Republic 3-0 in the final played under rain at the José Joaquín Coyella Fonseca Stadium in San José, Costa Rica.

El Salvador won the third-place match 3-2 in penalty kicks after a 2-2 draw with Puerto Rico. In regulation time, El Salvador went ahead 2-0 but the Puerto Ricans tied the ball game forcing the definition by penalty kicks.

Belize lost the fifth-place match 0-5 to Nicaragua finishing sixth in the regional ranking tournament.

Previously, the U-15 BGNT fell 0-7 to El Salvador and 0-10 to the Dominican Republic in the first round.

Honduras was ranked seventh by virtue of finishing in fourth place in Group A.

The tournament was the first official international tournament for the U-15 BGNT. Their next international competition will be the 2022 Concacaf Girls’ U15 Championship scheduled to take place from July 31 to August 7 at the Hillsborough County Tournament Sportsplex in Tampa, Florida, United States. That tournament will feature the participation of 31 Concacaf Member Associations, plus one invited guest.

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.
