The first night of the Tournament, Belize came out triumphed over Nicaragua – sparking up the bleachers in a tumultuous outcry of appraisal. however, last night, the Belize Baby Jaguars suffered a defeat against El Salvador. Tonight, Belize faces off against Guatemala. We spoke with Renan Cowo, coach for the U-16 National Selection who says that despite the disheartening loss last night, the Belize Jaguars are in for the win.
“Last night when finished the game, I tell to my players, you lose the game, but for me you are big warriors! This is not finished; right now, forget about El Salvador and start for, to think on Guatemala. Guatemala is in our minds right now. In the morning we had a meeting. The players are very good for tonight. Everybody is waiting for the revenge on Guatemala for tonight”.
According to Coach Cowo, Belize and Guatemala are two very strong opponents and was positive that the nation is in to see a very good game.
