Belize’s Deon McCaulay sits on the top position of most goal strikes at the final chunk of World Cup qualification games, proving to be one of the best along the ranks of world-renown Lionel Messi. In fact, at the moment McCaulay bests Messi (Argentina) and other great players like Peter Byers of Antigua & Barbuda, Blas Perez from Panama and Luis Suarez from Uruguay.
McCaulay is #1 at the moment after racking up 11 goals in eight games. The 26-year-old forward struck four times in the first-round play-off, but his most impressive feat was scoring seven goals in six second-round round games - despite his team being knocked out by Guatemala.
So even though Belize has long since been eliminated, forward Deon McCaulay shows that he has ‘got game’ and proven to be a great player, knocking elbows with the best in the sport.
Belizeans can be very proud of him and celebrate his great achievement.
But with Belize out of the game, this gives other strikers the opportunity to knock McCaulay off the top spot. Four-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi and compatriot Gonzalo Higuain - who have 10 and nine goals, respectively - would have been expected to oust Deon McCaulay in Argentina's final two games but injuries have seen them pull out of the already-qualified teams.
Antigua & Barbados ace Peter Byers is another well-placed player who has no longer has any chance of adding to his tally, of 10 goals, with his country's hopes of qualification having ended in the third round of the Concacaf qualification campaign.
