By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Under 16 Belize Men’s National Team (U16 BMNT) arrived in Albania late Thursday and on Friday conducted their first training session in preparation for the international tournament under the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

The team headed by Football Federation of Belize (FFB) Technical Director Philip Marin left Belize on Tuesday passing through Guatemala, Mexico, and Germany on their way to Tirana, Albania where they are competing in the UEFA U16 Youth Development Tournament from March 2-7.

The U16 BMNT will face San Marino, Kosovo, and Albania in the tournament.

Their first game will be against hosts Albania on Saturday, March 2 at the House of Football Stadium in Tirana. They will then tackle San Marino on Monday, March 4. Their final match will be against Kosovo on Thursday, March 7.

The European tournament comes in quite handy for the U16 BMNT as they get ready for the UNCAF U16 Men’s Championship to be held in Costa Rica in June and the Concacaf Championship U16 Boys Qualifiers in August.
