AFC Bournemouth midfielder Nathan Moriah-Welsh had a memorable afternoon yesterday, scoring his first international goal for Guyana despite defeat to Haiti.
The two nations met in Leonora and Haiti rushed into an early two-goal lead. After 11 minutes, Moriah-Welsh grabbed an assist, setting up Emery Welshman with a low ball into the box to cut the deficit.
Three goals in five minutes just before half-time gave the visitors a healthy lead but Moriah-Welsh pulled a goal back for Guyana, taking aim from the edge of the box and finding the bottom corner.
However, Haiti scored another goal to ensure a 6-2 victory in the CONCACAF Nations League.
Meanwhile, Mark Travers’ Republic of Ireland and Ryan Christie’s Scotland came head-to-head in the UEFA Nations League.
Travers was an unused substitute as Ireland cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory, with goals coming from Alan Browne, Troy Parrott and Michael Obafemi.
Christie started the game, being replaced by Stoke City’s Jacob Brown on the hour mark.
Chris Mepham played the full 90 minutes as Wales drew with Belgium in Cardiff in the UEFA Nations League.
Mepham and Wales frustrated the world’s second best team for large parts of the game, only conceding to Youri Tielemens second-half strike.
However, Nottingham Forest’s Brennan Johnson scored his first international goal to secure a point. Kieffer Moore missed the game having withdrawn from the international camp with a back injury.
