The entire team played a first class game, reiterating the fact that the Gombey Warriors can more than hold their own at this very high level of international competition.

This year was the first time Bermuda had qualified for the Concacaf Gold Cup — which is the most prestigious regional football competition for our area — hence this marks the first Gold Cup victory in Bermuda’s history.

The game was held in New Jersey and a large contingent of Bermudians were in attendance and they erupted into celebrations, waving their Bermuda flags as the team claimed the momentous victory.

We expect to have additional coverage and are providing live updates here.

    • Ashamed says:

      Had a vision? What was the vision that they saw through? 11 shots on target, 16 shots off target and 4 goals in 3 games knocked out at the group stages and 3 points against Nicaragua? Who is Nicaragua? We had 4 players that play in Europe and another one that has played in Europe and all we managed was 3 points against Nicaragua. Nicaragua have none in Europe. If Bermudians can say that they are proud of the performance then that says it all about Bermuda football.
