Video: Bermuda Gold Cup Team Arrives In Texas

June 18, 2019

After a long day of travel Bermuda’s Gold Cup football team safely arrived at their hotel in Texas last night, where they will regroup and prepare for their match versus Costa Rica, which will take place on Thursday evening [June 20] at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Dallas.

Thursday’s game will be the second for the team, following on the heels of their 2-1 loss to Haiti to open their Gold Cup play on June 16.

Speaking at a press conference after the match vs Haiti — which saw Dante Leverock score Bermuda’s first ever Gold Cup goal — Coach Kyle Lightbourne said, “I’m disappointed in the result but I’m proud of my team.”

“From after this press conference, everything goes towards Costa Rica. We will be prepared. We’re training hard. Our boys putting in the work. It’s difficult for us, we know that. We’re not hiding the fact,” the Coach added. “It’s about us building and getting better, that’s the most important thing for me.”

Bermuda’s team includes Nahki Wells, Dante Leverock, Jonte Smith, Reggie Lambe, Dale Eve, Oliver Jalen Harvey, Calon Minors, Roger Lee, Kacy Milan Butterfield, Jaylon Bather, Lejaun Simmons, Donte Brangman, Chikosi Basden, Zeiko Lewis, Willie Clemons, Jahquil Hill, Osagi Bascome, Cecoy Robinson, Justin Donawa, Wendell Tre Ming, Liam Evans, Marco Warren, and Quinaceo Hunt.
