VI swamped 0-14 by ruthless Cuba in CONCACAF WC Qualifier

VI swamped 0-14 by ruthless Cuba in CONCACAF WC Qualifier

The [British] Virgin Islands Women’s Football Team had a rough start to their campaign in the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers, going down 0-14 to a ruthless Cuba at the Francisco Morazan Stadium in Honduras yesterday, Saturday, February 19, 2022.

The young and inexperienced team simply had no answer to the dominant play of their more experienced counterparts and were unable to stop the goal-fest that ensued.

Cuba’s Yeranis Lee tallied six goals in the 14-0 victory of the Group E affair.

Lee scored in the 26’, 32’, 39’, 56’, 63’ and 83’ and was joined on the scoresheet by Rachel Pelaez, who notched a hat trick (10’, 23’, 45’). Also joining the goal-scoring action were Eliane Valdez (57’, 79’), Maria Perez (68’), Yerly Palma (77’) and Eunises Nunez (87’).

The VI women will now be looking to get over the crushing defeat and put on a much better showing against hosts Honduras on Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
