Nicaragua vs Belize: Storylines
Nicaragua will be back in action for the first time since March to continue their way towards Qatar 2022. The squad coached by Argentine Juan Vita has begun its path on the right foot, but there's still plenty to be played and this game might be important.
The Azul y Blanco seem to be favorites in Group E, but they shouldn't underestimate any of the upcoming duels because anyone could shock them. For that reason, they need to keep on bringing their A-game and score as many goals as possible.
Belize, however, shouldn't be afraid as they also proved their strength in their last World Cup fixture. They overcame a weak start after losing with Haiti 2-0, as they were ruthless against Turk and Caicos Islands. The upcoming match, though, seems more challenging.
