World Nations Cup 2018 Qualifiers |CONCAFA Section
Eboria’s Men’s National Team lost their first game on Saturday night. Latania, facing an almost must-win scenario, won 2-1 at home with ten men. With Mario Lotti not firing on all cylinders, it has become the ‘time’ for Leo Cozza to shine. He grabbed a brace as Latania stayed alive in the race to qualify for the World Nations Cup.
Then, tonight, Eboria drew 1-1 at home to Aguador. Roman Baric’s second half finish cancelled out Luis Velasquez’z opener. With eight rounds played, Eboria top the group of eight (know as the Octagonal Group, or ‘The Oct’ with 17 points. Mexico are second, with 15 points, Marida are third (13 pts), then Costa Rica and United States are tied on 12 points each.
Eboria’s opponents, Aguador and Latania are hanging in there, with 9 and ten points respectively. Jamaica, with only one point from eight games will likely have to win out to gain any chance of making the fourth and final spot.
