The Belize Jaguars faced off against the Cuban National Football Team in an official FIFA international friendly match. The game took place on Sunday at the Football Federation of Belize’s stadium in Belmopan. Noticeably, the Jaguar’s main goalkeeper, Woodrow West, was barred from playing in the game. On Sunday morning, the FFB announced that it would be suspending West after he was caught on camera insisting that a woman goes home with him or suffer physical abuse. Our newsroom spoke with the President of the Football Federation of Belize, Sergio Chuc, who explained how the federation is handling their goalkeeper’s transgressions.
Chuc stated that the executives were notified of the video on Friday and took swift action by Saturday. This incident comes as Belize and many other nations are celebrating Women’s month.
