USVISA U-20 Male National Team Complete Campaign at CONCACAF Qualifiers

U.S Virgin Islands Soccer Association (USVISA)

The Dashing Eagles Under-20 male delegation’s campaign at the qualifying round of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football          (CONCACAF) Men’s Under-20 Qualifiers was held in the Dominican Republic from Nov. 5-13.

The team played three tough matches without a win. It suffered its greatest defeat to Nicaragua, the highest ranked member of group D, (7-0), in the first match, with a 4, 4, 3 formation.

A red card was given to Guyana in the second game. Unfortunately, the V.I. did not capitalize on the advantage of having one more player on the pitch and defensive 5, 4, 1 formation. Naqwan Henry scored in the 57th minute in the 5-1 loss.

Arthbert William and Naqwan Henry got their names on the score sheet during the third and final loss, against Cayman Islands (5-2).
