By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize started off the FIFA 2026 World Cup Qualifiers on a bad foot taking a 4-0 trouncing by Nicaragua at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan on Saturday evening.

Belize held off the Nicaraguans for39 minutes but conceded the first goal in the 40th minute when Bancy Hernández placed the ball past Charles Tillett.  Juan Barrera augmented the Pinoleros lead in the 56th with a penalty kick after a foul on Hernández who completed his brace in the 65th for the 3-0 lead. Jaime Moreno put the last nail in the coffin in the 89th off a penalty kick by Jaime Moreno who fired to the right beyond Tillett’s reach for the final 4-0 victory.

Certainly not the start Belize were looking forward to Group D and will now be travelling to Barbados to face the South American side on Tuesday, June 11. The match will kick off at 4:00 pm Belize time (6:00 pm Guyana time) at the Wildey Astro Turf Stadium in Bridgetown.
