Bermuda Come From Behind to Draw with Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico 2 Bermuda 2

Bermuda’s Under 20 Men’s National team took to the field for the final time in the 2020 CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship Qualifying tournament as they took on host Puerto Rico.

Bermuda’s Starting Line-Up: Peter Silvester, Zakiyah Lee, Diego Richardson, Ayleal Dill, Simeon Burrows, Rayquon Woodley-Smith, Samori Greenidge-Saltus, Jalun Hassell, Arnezha Astwood, Seke Spence, Luciano Swan - Substitutes: Jaiden Manders, Malik Joell, Khiari Sharrieff-Hayward, Amir Thomas, Senoj Mitchell, Jenico Sealey, Z’Dao Dill

The Bermuda team went into the final game looking for their first points of the tournament, but they found themselves down 1 – 0 after only 3 minutes, Puerto Rico doubled their lead in the 28th minute, but Bermuda would pull a goal back when Luciano Swan converted from the penalty spot, his goal was his 4th of the competition.

Bermuda would salvage a point when Ayleal Dill scored in the 66th minute, neither team would find the back of the net as Bermuda would pick up their only point of the tournament with a 2 – 2 draw.

Bermuda Under 20 head coach Ray Jones speaking to www.islandstats.com following the game summed up the tournament this way, “Overall I think we should have done better, we were in every match, but things just didn’t go our way, and with 9 players making their International debut, it was an eye opener for some of them.”

“In the first game, the second yellow card that resulted in a red card changed the game,” continued Jones. “Game Two saw us give away a goal from a set piece with the last kick of the game, which was again disappointing and then tonight the players showed guts and determination to come from 2 – 0 down to claw their way back to get a draw showed the character and hopefully they learn from the experience.”
