The National Selection is riding a thre game international winning streak led by the celebrated Honduran coach Chelato Ucles. Team Belize's next world cup qualifier is scheduled for next Tuesday, September 6th, when it is scheduled to play Guatemala at home at the FFB field in Belmopan - the first major international match at the country's only FIFA approved facility.
