The Bahamas National Beach Soccer team could not close this FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup – CONCACAF qualifier they are hosting as sweetly as they would have liked to.
The Semi-Finals In Arms Reach For The Bahamians…
The Bahamians came really close to the semifinals, only to fall one goal short of the records that would have got them in, and the penalty kick shootout denied them the fifth place in the competition today.
Guatemala proved better aimed from the 9-meter distance after a terribly thrilling and balanced game in which both sides netted six goals. After a goalless extra time, the Chapines would seal the victory thanks to Samaoya, who took perfect advantage of Jean’s sending his attempt wide.
