1. Weak Defense
Curaçao’s defense showed a less solid performance. Especially in the last three matches in 2022, against Canada on June 10, 2022 and twice against Honduras on June 4 and 7, 2022.
In three CONCACAF Nations League 2022 matches at the start of June 2022, the Curaçao national team defense seemed very easily penetrated by the opposition.
As a result, against Canada, Curaçao lost 0-4. Canada’s four goals were created through different processes. Canada’s first goal against Curaçao came with a penalty, a header and two assists open game.
Then against Honduras, Curaçao conceded on free kicks and open play.
