By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Verdes’ Joel Burgos found himself booted out of the pitch in Puerto Rico’s 3-2 win over Antigua and Barbuda in his country’s Group D match in Concacaf League B at the ABFA Technical Center in Piggotts, Antigua and Barbuda on Saturday.

Burgos is the only foreign footballer playing in the Premier League of Belize who gets called up for his country’s national team.

Burgos was shown the red card on accumulation of two yellow cards in the 90th minute with Antigua and Barbuda pressing in their efforts to level the match. Puerto Rico managed to get the win but Burgos will have to sit out their next game against the Bahamas on Tuesday.

Verdes might just recall him to rejoin them earlier this coming week, particularly after Jordy Polanco’s shoulder injury early in the Concacaf Nations League match against French Guiana on Friday night.

Wilfredo Rivera scored a brace for Puerto Rico with Darren Rios adding the other. Dion Pereira and Raheem Deterville scored for Antigua and Barbuda.

Guyana can top the group if they pull off at least a draw against their hosts, the Bahamas, at the Estadio Olímpico Félix Sánchez in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic today at 5:00 pm

Puerto Rico have now totalled nine points and find themselves in second place behind Guyana who have a perfect 4-0 record for 12 points. Antigua and Barbuda follow in third place with four points while the Bahamas sit in the bottom with one solitarity point.
