By Rubén Morales Iglesias: In praising their young talents, second substitute goalkeeper David Perez Jr. (16 years) and forward Jessie August (21 years and goalscorer), as key players in the 1-0 win over Altitude last Saturday in the Premier League of Belize, Verdes prided themselves on an unprecedented run in Belize football.
“The win on Saturday continued an unprecedented and unheard-of run in Belize’s top flight football where Verdes FC have lost ONLY 1 game in their last 50 matches here in Belize,” said Verdes FC on Monday in a social media post.
“The run dates back to July 2019 and that 1 loss dates back to October 2019 so we are currently on a run of 39 straight UNBEATEN matches here in Belize without a loss.”
Currently, Verdes are in San Salvador, El Salvador, preparing for Wednesday’s return match in the Scotiabank Concacaf League against Alianza. Unfortunately for the Green Machine, the first leg was a 0-2 loss to Alianza. Recently, Verdes became the first Belizean club to advance to the Round of 16 in the Scotiabank Concacaf League by eliminating Platense, also from El Salvador. And though it’s an uphill battle, on Wednesday, Verdes hope to advance to the quarterfinals.
