Police United FC faces early elimination

On Tuesday night, Police United FC played against Mexican Champions Pachuca after losing four to zero against Club Deportivo Olimpia from Honduras. The match was no different than  the one we saw in their debut match: a poor Police United which barely managed a 9% possession in their entire match. In Football, that translates to them having the ball under their control for 8.1 minutes out of the 90.  However, they did manage to go through an entire half without conceding a single goal, and that would have been praise-worthy had they been able to sustain a goalless second half as well.  Even so, it did take Pachuca sixty two minutes to get on the scoreboard. Erick Aguirre scored a header after a pass from Jonathan Urretaviscaya. It was then that the cookie crumbled for Police United who was doing a good job defending without even getting a hold of the ball. The second goal came seventy nine minutes into the match from Mexican National Hirving Lozano, with a header to the right bottom corner of the goal. The third goal was a masterpiece from a set piece. Jonathan Urretaviscaya managed to get his name on the scoreboard after a free kick was awarded to him just outside the penalty box. The match ended with three to zero, quite a similar result to their game in Honduras. So now, Police United is technically eliminated with two home matches still pending. On September 13th 2016, they will face Pachuca at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan at 6:00pm local time. Their final match will be on September 29th 2016 where they will be hosting Club Deportivo Olimpia from Honduras. Police United FC currently remains last on the table with zero points and seven conceded goals.
