In other football news, the official FIFA website posted an article on its world cup news section called “No Deon, no goals for Belize.” The title is self explanatory. The article says it was no surprise that Belize struggled to score a goal without Deon McCauley.
It says that quote, “One of the big surprises of the first round was the omission of Deon McCaulay for Belize. He plays his club football in the United States for NASL’s Atlanta Silverbacks and finished the Brazil 2014 qualifiers as top scorer worldwide, ahead of even superstars like Luis Suarez and Robin van Persie. What was not a surprise was how the Jaguars struggled to score without him. They drew 0-0 at home and needed a stunner of a free-kick from Elroy Kuylen in the return leg to see off the Cayman Islanders and avoid disaster by the width of one slim away goal. It is hard to see into the future, but the smart money is on a recall for free-scoring McCauley in the next round.“
