Sligo's Dante Leverock Scores Historic Goal For Bermuda

Dante Leverock scored Bermuda's first ever goal in the CONCACAF Gold Cup on Sunday night.

The Sligo Rovers centre-back headed his side into a lead against Haiti just before the break. However, they would go on to lose 2-1 with Mouscron's Frantzdy Pierrot scoring twice in the 20 minutes following half-time.

Leverock also captained the Bermuda side who are making their debut in the tournament.

The 26-year-old joined the Sligo Rovers in December from Estonian team Narva Trans on a one-year deal.

"It was a great feeling scoring in front of my family and the travellings fans," Leverock told Bernews.com.

"I know I can put my name in history for that.

"It's always a privilege and honour even to be captain. Personally, I'm happy but I'd rather not score and we win the game."

Bermuda face Costa Rica in their next group stage game. This year's competition is being jointly hosted by the US, Costa Rica and Jamaica.
