Verdes falls to San Francisco


Belize’s National Champions, Verdes F.C., saw their participation in the 2015/16 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League Tournament, end on a disappointing note, suffering an 8 – 0 victory at the hands of Group C opponents, Panama’s San Francisco. ┬áThe match, played at the Estadio Maracana de Panama, was the final game in Group C, which sees Mexico’s Querataro move on to face DC United.

Despite the unfortunate end to their Champions League campaign, Verdes put up an otherwise respectable showing in Group C play, earning a total of 4 points from an earlier draw with Querataro and a win over San Francisco, both results coming in home matches played at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan, Belize.
