Montserrat loses its first 2014 world cup encounter to Belize after hopeful at the half

Montserrat team before match

The Montserrat coach Kenny Dyer said he was very hopeful at half time score of 1-1, during their encounter in Trinidad against Belize in the first 2014 world cup qualifier. “At half-time we thought there was a good chance we could get something from this game but it didn’t turn out that way,” he said after the match.

According to the report at FIFA.com it said: “The ‘home’ side though were rewarded for their efforts with an equaliser shortly before half-time. Jay Lee Hogdson slotted home from close range, following a deep left-sided cross by Luevon O’Garro, to set up what looked to be a competitive second period.”

Coach Dyer said it all for the Montserrat team that came together last week Thursday with less than a week to prepare for their two game encounter. (see: http://www.themontserratreporter.com/featured/montserrat-participates-in-world-cup-qualifiers).

Montserrat coach Kenny Dyer was understandably disappointed with the scoreline, but remains optimistic for the second leg. “We put in a lot of effort in our preparation and it all fell apart in the second half in the space of ten minutes or so,” said Dyer. “That was the most disappointing thing for me because we did well in the first half. At half-time we thought there was a good chance we could get something from this game but it didn’t turn out that way.”

The team must now travel to Belize where as we read in the link above might be a doubtful starter, in spite of what Dyer had to say: “Now we’ve got to regroup and get ourselves ready for the next game. We can still hold our heads high and go to Belize and come away with a positive result.”

For Montserrat’s sake the hope is that the players can ‘gel’ and avoid misunderstandings that result in missed goals or goals against them.
