EL Salvador beats Jamaica 8-4 In today’s Beach Soccer World Cup Qualifier in Nassau Bahamas. El Salvador work the miracle!
Things Were Almost Impossible For Rudis Gallo’s Side At That Point, But USA Lent The Cuscatleco A Valuable Hand….
El Salvador was almost out of the tournament after their defeat against Costa Rica early today. Things were almost impossible for Rudis Gallo’s side at that point, but USA lent the Cuscatleco a valuable hand by loudly bending the Bahamas (2-9) and giving the chance to the Salvadorians to wrestle a place in the semifinals.
To achieve so, they had to beat Jamaica with a distance wider than three goals.
The Azul Player had missed the first opportunity, and they were determined not to miss the second one. However, it was never easy for Gallo and his lads, as Jamaica wanted to deny their accessing the next round.
A 2-0 advantage by the Salvadorian was quickly equalized by the Reggae boys, and minutes were ticking down for the Cuscatleco. Every time they managed a two-goal distance, along came the Jamaicans to cut the gap, as the anxiety in El Salvador grew in inverse proportion to the time remaining…
Just when it seemed the Salvadorians would fell a couple of goals short, a magic 3-0 run, with just four minutes left, achieved the impossible and pushed the fourth-ranked in the last World Cup onto the semifinals of this FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2013 – CONCACAF Qualifier Bahamas. There, El Salvador will battle defending champions Mexico, all or nothing, for a ticket to Papeete.
