Trinidad & Tobago suffers shock loss

[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING] Long-time indoor star John Barry Nusum scored two goals to lead Bermuda to a 2-1 win at Trinidad & Tobago in the biggest upset of the first leg of second-round qualifying in the Concacaf zone.

Like Clint Dempsey, who scored twice against Barbados in an 8-0 win, Nusum attended Furman University. His two goals came in the first half and were sandwiched between a goal by former MLS star Stern John for T&T, whose national team program has been struggled since the 2006 World Cup because of a bitter bonus dispute between players and T&T soccer boss Jack Warner.

In other Concacaf action, Mexico struggled to put away Belize, 2-0, before more than 50,000 fans in Houston. Carlos Vela gave the Tri the lead in the 66th minute, and Carlos Borgetti's penalty kick sealed the win in the 90th minute.

Belize is coached by American Ian Mork.

The Los Angeles Galaxy's Carlos Ruiz scored four goals in Guatemala's 6-0 win over St. Lucia.
