By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Football Federation of Belize (FFB) congratulated Belizean defender Jordan Casanova, one of Belize’s young prospects, on winning a collegiate football championship in the United States where he is studying Business Management under a full three-year scholarship at Angelina College in Texas.

“Congratulations to Jordan Casanova and his team on this victory! Our international student athletes continue to go great things,” the FFB said in a social media post on Monday. The NJCAA is the National Junior College Athletic Association.

Last Friday, the Angelina College Roadrunners won the 2023 NJCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Gulf South District Championship by defeating Tyler Junior College 2-1 in the Final.

“With the win, the No. 7 Roadrunners earn a berth to the upcoming NJCAA Division I National Tournament scheduled to kick off on Nov. 12 in Wichita, Kansas,” Angelina College Athletics posted on social media.

“The win also gave the men’s soccer program a place in Angelina College history: They’re the first AC team to earn consecutive appearances in a national tournament. Congrats to the players and coaches. Next stop: A national title in Wichita.”

Casanova played 13 games this season, starting in five including the final.

Casanova left for Texas last year in August at the beginning of the 2022-23 academic year on a scholarship under the FFB Scholarship program.

Nineteen-year-old Casanova has played at all levels of the FFB’s national team’s including the senior Belize Men’s National Team (BMNT), the U-23, U-19, U-18, U-17, and U-15 national teams. Casanova was called to the BMNT when he was 17 and already represented the country in Concacaf play at the highest level. Casanova also played in Premier League of Belize for the San Pedro Pirates in 2021.

At 17, after representing Belize at the 2021 Concacaf U-20 Qualifiers in the Dominican Republic with the U20 BMNT of which he was sub captain, Casanova went on a tryout with the MLS club Chicago Fire in January 2022. At the time, Casanova was suffering from a leg injury.
