#AFTER winning their opening game of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association (Concacaf) Nations League 1-0 over St Vincent & the Grenadines at home on Friday, the Bahamas men’s national soccer team suffered the same fate to host Trinidad & Tobago Monday night in game two of their home-and-away series.
#The “Junkanoo Boys,” coached by Nesly Jean, could not hold off the “Soca Warriors” in the much-anticipated matchup in the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad & Tobago. The team had to make the trip to Trinidad immediately after pulling off their win over St Vincent & The Grenadines.
#Suiting up for Team Bahamas were Lesly St Fleur, Jean Francois, Julio Jemison, Troy Pinder, Evelt Julmis, Wood Julmis, Ian Lowe, Alexiou Cartwright, Roen Davis, Vance Wheaton, Kenaz Swain, Michael Massey, Derrick Ferguson, Jordin Wilson, Nathan Wells, Christopher Rahming, William Bayles, Omari Bain, Quinton Carey, Marcel Joseph, Logan Russell and Nicolas Lopez
#But despite falling short, head coach Nesly Jean indicated that the team performed to the best of their abilities.
#He noted that although they had some players who never played at this level before, they showed that the Bahamas is capable of playing against any team in the region.
#The team, which was managed by Larry Minns and had Kevin Davies and Avery Kemp, is placed in Group B with three other teams. They have two more games to play in March against St Vincent & The Grenadines on the road and Trinidad & Tobago here at home.
#Team Bahamas would have to either win the group or finish in the top two in order to be able to advance to the next level.
