Bermuda grab vital draw

Bermuda’s 2018 World Cup journey continued last night in Guatemala with the 2nd Round of qualification, and without star Nahki Wells the Gombey Warriors grabbed a meaningful 0-0 draw with the home leg to come on Monday night.

The game in Guatemala City was suspended with 5 minutes to go due to a power blackout but was restarted after 20 minutes. Bermuda saw out the game thanks to some heroics from goalkeeper Freddy Wells, who played last season in England for AFC Telford but was recently released. The 30-year old once had a trial with Charlton.

Nahki Wells decided to rest his injured ankle for the 1st leg but hopes to play in Monday’s return which will be played at the National Stadium in Devonshire.

Guatemala, who have qualified for this summer’s corruption tainted CONCACAF Gold Cup are placed 33 places higher in the current FIFA rankings than Bermuda.
