MIAMI, Florida – There is no question that 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Qualifying delivered a number of exceptional single game performances, but there were a certain number of players who excelled over the course of the four matches.
Here is a look at some of the top Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders and Forwards from CNLQ.
While CNLQ did see a slew of goals scored, there were a fair number of GKs who stood out. Rishison Frans of Bonaire was one of those, as he made 21 saves in four matches and helped Bonaire earn its first win since 2014 with a 2-1 triumph over British Virgin Islands in Week 4.
Belize’s Woodrow West was also up to the task in CNLQ, making 20 saves on top of 13 clearances in 381 minutes of action. Not to be outdone was Curacao’s Eloy Room, who conceded just two goals in four games with 11 saves and 100% passing accuracy.
Cuco Martina was Curacao’s do-it-all man. The veteran DF scored a goal, took three shots, had one steal, two assists, three clearances and a passing accuracy of 91.35%.
Saint Lucia’s Kurt Frederick was a menace at both ends with nine clearances and six shots on top of two steals.
Frederick wasn’t alone in that regard, as Montserrat’s Micheal Williams tormented opponents with nine clearances and six steals.
There is perhaps no player more valuable to his team than Nicaragua’s Juan Barrera. Barrera is leading the Pinoleros back to the Gold Cup thanks to his five goals, including the winning score in Week 4’s 1-0 win at Barbados. Barrera also had three steals and an assist in four games.
Whenever the ball was coming off the foot of Andy Baquero, just about everyone knew that it would reach its intended target. The Cuba man was sensational during CNLQ, ranking top among all MFs with an 88.98% passing accuracy, plus two goals and five steals.
Also of note was the play of Dominica’s Briel Thomas, who had a jaw-dropping nine steals, along with a goal and an assist.
Rangelo Janga of Curacao heads up an impressive list of standout FWs, as he finished CNLQ as the co-leading in goals scored with six (Duckens Nazon, Haiti).
Canada’s Jonathan David showed off his versatility with four goals scored, three assists and four steals in just 270 minutes of action.
Rounding out the top FWs is Martinique’s Kevin Parsemain, who was a threat to shoot any time he touched the ball. Martinique’s danger man had four goals from 20 shots in four matches.
