By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize lost 7-2 to Nicaragua on Thursday finishing in eighth place in the U-15 Uncaf Boys FIFA Forward Championship at Liga Deportiva Alajuelense’s High Performance Center in Alajuela, Costa Rica.

The Belize Boys National Team scored in the 13th and 29th minutes. The first was off a penalty kick by Jamal Herrera which put the game 2-1 and the second off a Devin Marshall shot from the 18-yard-box line after a rebound. That was Marshall’s second goal of the tournament. The game was 3-2 then. But the Nicaraguans kept pushing forward and scored four more goals.

Both Belize and Nicaragua finished in last place in their groups after losing their three group play matches. In the first round, in Group B, Belize lost 4-1 to Guatemala, 7-0 to Honduras, and 12-2 to Panama. For their part, in Group A, Nicaragua fell 3-1 to El Salvador, 3-2 to Puerto Rico, and 5-4 to Costa Rica.

Guatemala beat Costa Rica 3-1 to capture the Central American championship.

Panama claimed third place by beating El Salvador 3-0, while Honduras took fifth place, downing Honduras 3-1.

In the end, our best game was against the eventual champions, Guatemala.
