Photo Set #2: Bermuda vs Bahamas Football

March 30, 2015

The Bermuda national football team have advanced to the next 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying round after scoring three goals in some 10 minutes to claim a 3-0 victory over the Bahamas at the National Sports Centre on Sunday [Mar 29].

Bermuda’s starting line-up was Freddy Hall, Jaylon Bather, Tyrrell Burgess, Jaylen Harvey, Drewondae Bascome, Zeiko Lewis, Dante Leverock , Keishen Bean, Justin Donawa, Reggie Lambe and Nahki Wells, with Andrew Bascome serving as head coach.

Around thirty minutes into the game Justin Donawa was replaced by Jonte Smith after suffering an injury, and the two teams went into the half-time break with neither team having scored.

The second half began with change of goalkeeper for Bermuda, with Dale Eve replacing Freddy Hall, and the score remained at 0-0 until the 79th minute when Bermuda came alive — much to the delight of the sold out crowd.

Nahki Wells opened the scoring in the 79th minute, with Tyrell Burgess making it 2-0 in the 82nd minute, before Wells struck again in the 87th minute to give Bermuda the 3-0 victory.


Speaking after the game, Nahki Wells, who plays professionally in the UK, told Bernews: “I’m happy to be playing in front of my nation again, and I’m happy to get the win. It’s nice to see so many familiar faces, and put a smile on the nation.”

Sunday’s 3-0 victory follows after Bermuda’s 5-0 victory in the first game against the Bahamas, and with their 8-0 aggregate win, Bermuda will advance to the next round and will take on Guatamala. You can view all our coverage of Bermuda’s World Cup qualifying participation here.
