Following Bermuda’s 4 – 2 defeat at the hands of DC United in their International Friendly in the US Virgin Islands, Bermuda National Coach Kyle Lightbourne spoke with www.islandstats.com.
Lightbourne said, “it was an opportunity to try a few things differently, we played with three at the back, but the players did not feel comfortable with that system so we reverted back to four at the back.”
“We was able to get back into the match following being down 2 – 0 to make it 2 – 2 at the break, but we gave away a sloppy third goal and then the fourth although it was well taken, we made another mistake in not clearing the ball,” continued Lightbourne.
“It was a good run out for some players to get up to the pace needed to face Mexico on Tuesday,” concluded Lightbourne.
Meanwhile Mexico clinched its place in the CONCACAF Nations League Final Championship in the summer of 2020 with a 3-0 victory over Panama at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City.
The result cements a first-place finish in Group B of League A for El Tricolor, while Bermuda need a win in order to advance.
