Grenada to play two CONCACAF Nations League Matches during the current international break
RICHMOND, Va. – The Richmond Kickers are pleased to share that forward Kharlton Belmar has earned a call-up to the Grenada Men’s National Team for the country’s upcoming CONCACAF Nations League matches.
Belmar and his teammates are set to face Suriname on Fri., Sept. 8th, and Honduras on Tues., Sept. 12th.
He returns to the national team after first receiving a call-up to represent Grenada in March 2021 as the Caribbean nation entered World Cup qualifying. He started on his debut as Grenada earned a 1-0 win over the U.S. Virgin Islands.
In total, Belmar has earned nine total caps including World Cup qualifying, CONCACAF Nations League, and friendlies. His time in the Nations League included a start against the United States Men’s National Team on June 10, 2022, in front of a packed house at Q2 Stadium in Austin, Texas.
Belmar ranks tied for second on the Kickers in assists (3) while adding two goals to his overall goal contributions.
Kharlton Belmar said:
“It’s always an honor to get called up to play for the national team. I’m really looking forward to getting back involved with the squad for big games against good opponents and hopefully starting off Nations League group play on a strong note.”
Darren Sawatzky, Richmond Kickers’ Head Coach and Chief Sporting Officer said:
“We are pleased for Kharlton and his opportunity. International call-ups are gems to be cherished and we wish him the best of luck with Grenada.”
Richmond are on the road next, Sat., Sept. 9th, as they prepare to face Union Omaha at Werner Park. The match is set to kick off at 8 p.m. The team will hold an official watch party at Three Notch’d Brewing.
