Bermuda qualify for 2019 Gold Cup- Nation with population of just over 70,000 to participate for first time

By Soccer Blog | Mar 25, 2019

Tiny Bermuda will be competing in the Gold Cup for the first time in their history after beating the Dominican Republic 3-1 to seal their spot in the competition. Goals from Zeiko Lewis, Nahki Wells and Justin Donawa saw the island nation, with a population of just over 70,000, stun their higher ranked opponents in a winner-takes-all affair.

The Gold Cup will be played by 16 teams this year instead of the usual 12, and that’s allowed two new debutants- Bermuda and Guyana, who beat Belize 2-1.

There could’ve been an even bigger qualifying story in the form of Montserrat (pop 5,000 and ranked 200th in the world), but they were cruelly denied on goal difference as a result of Nicaragua’s win over Barbados.

Montserrat would’ve even made it had Barbados’ 2-2 draw against Guyana not been converted into a 3-0 win for the latter owing to the former fielding ineligible players in that fixture. One of those two ineligible players was Hallam Hope, who scored a cheeky goal against Notts County earlier this month.

The groups for Copa Oro 2019 will be announced on 10 April in Los Angeles.

Can Iceland upset Les Bleus in Paris?

By Soccer Blog | Mar 25, 2019

A repeat of the Euro 2016 quarterfinal sees France and Iceland again square off in Saint-Denis tonight. That game, won 5-2 by France, was probably the highest point this decade for Icelandic football, which has tapered off badly in the last twelve months. They went fifteen games without a win before finally managing one against lowly Andorra earlier this month. Iceland had a disastrous 2018 World Cup, finishing bottom of their group, but will be bidding to reach their second successive Euros and taking points off the world champions in Paris will see them take a huge step towards that aim.

France beat Moldova 4-1 to kick off their qualifying campaign. Bar Antoine Griezmann, none of the other Les Bleus players really got into top gear, and they really did not have to as France completed an easy win. They’ll have to raise their game against Iceland though- the Nordic nation are probably France’s biggest threat in Group H, having drawn 2-2 with Les Bleus last year. Continue Reading >>
