The CONCACAF Women’s Championship is currently taking place in the USA, with minnows Martinique going up against favourites Mexico last night.
Martinique came away from the game as 10-0 losers after receiving a chastening experience in Illinois.
They had already lost their opener 6-0 to Jamaica, giving them a current goal difference of -16 from two games.
Their coach was almost poetic in his analysis. “Even though they scored 10 goals, we still played. That’s important”, he said. He went on to add that he didn’t substitute his injured goalkeeper after the first goal because “our reserve ‘keeper is very bad”.
