Walsall Duo Start as Montserrat Lose to Nicaragua

The two Saddlers were back in action in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Walsall defender Donervon Daniels and midfielder Brandon Comley were named in the starting XI as Montserrat took on Nicaragua in their bid to take a step closer to qualifying for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Taking place at the Estadio Nacional de Fútbol in Nicaragua, the CONCACAF Second Round - Group D match kicked off at 3.00pm BST, 10.00pm local time.

Trent Carter-Rodgers; Nico Gordon, Donervon Daniels, Jeriel Dorsett, Lenni Rae Cirino, Brandon Comley, Alex Dyer, Brandon Barzey, Jamie Allen, Lyle Taylor, Kaleem Simon
Subs: Kymani Nelson, Corrin Brooks-Meade, Joey Taylor, Rafaele Cirino, Jernade Meade, Lucas Kirnon, Mylan Benjamin, Bradley Woods-Garness, Josiah Dyer, Dominic Richmond

The first goal of the game arrived with just three-minutes on the clock as SJK striker Jamie Moreno gave his side an early advantage on a sweaty evening in Nicaragua.

La Azul y Blanco's lead didn't last forever as Dartford forward Brandon Barzey levelled the scores just six-minutes later, San Carlos goalkeeper Jason Vega unable to keep his sheet clean.

Diriangén forward Junior Arteaga was the next to get among the goals as he put Nicaragua back into the lead shortly after the midway point in the first-half, Donervon Daniels helping his free-kick into the back of the net.

Nicaragua's third goal arrived midway through the second forty-five as substitute Jacob Montes slipped the ball low into the bottom corner of the goal following a neat passage of play, an increasingly disappointing game for Donervon, Brandon, and their teammates.

Real Esteli striker Harold Medina capped off a fine evening for Nicaragua as he slammed the ball into the back of the net in second-half stoppage time, making the final score: Nicaragua  Montserrat 1.

There were no further goals as Nicaragua deservedly took all three points, beginning the group stage in fine style.

Montserrat will next be in action on Sunday, 9th June, when they take on Panama in their second group game as their run of World Cup qualifiers continue.
