Videos: El Salvador vs Bermuda Football Game

February 23, 2017

Bermuda’s U/20 football team continued taking part in the CONCACAF U20 Championships in Costa Rica, with their second game seeing El Salvador win 3 – 1, with Mazhye Burchall scoring for Bermuda.

The CONCACAF match report said, “El Salvador [2W-0D-0L, 6 points] earned a berth in the classification stage of the 2017 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship with a game to spare after topping Bermuda, 3-1, on Wednesday at the Estadio Nacional.

“The top two teams from each of the three groups will progress to the next round. With the first-place Salvadorans having maximum points from two games, only one other team in the Group C can equal or surpass the six-point mark — either Trinidad & Tobago [0-1-0, 1] or host Costa Rica [0-0-1, 0], which will meet later in the evening.

El Salvador vs Bermuda interviews

“Like he did against Costa Rica on Sunday, Roberto Dominguez scored El Salvador’s opening goal on a clever play in the 21st minute.

“From the left side of the box, Marvin Marquez delivered a cross along the ground that Josue Santos dummied through his legs. Dominguez lunged with his right foot at the top of the six-yard box and jabbed the ball past goalkeeper Detre Bell.

“Marquez notched a second assist in the 65th minute, when he slipped a feed to Fernando Castillo, who took a touch into the box and fired a right-footed shot into the right side of the net from 16-yards out to make it 2-0.

“Two minutes later, Josue Rivera extended El Salvador’s lead, bringing down Castillo’s first-timed cross from the left to drill a right-footed shot off the diving Bell from 14-yards out.

“Bermuda struck for a consolation in the 75th minute that could prove to be the goal of the tournament. Osagi Bascome sent a free kick into the right side of the box for Mazhye Burchall.

“In a fluid movement, the 19-year-old kept the ball in the air with his right foot, turned and snapped off a right-footed shot into the net from nine yards.

“Despite the loss, the Bermudians are still in contention for a place in the next round.”
