Who is Deon McCaulay?

Who is Deon McCaulay?

It is a question many football fans were asking after seeing the name at the top of the scorers’ table for 2014 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying. Many may not know the man himself and even more may not be able to find his home nation of Belize on a map, but one fact remains: He edged out Dutch ace Robin van Persie and Uruguay’s ruthless Luis Suarez – not to mention Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – as the globe’s top marksman on the road to Brazil 2014.

“I mean, it feels really good to have my name up there with those big, no, those huge names from all the big countries,” McCaulay told FIFA.com in a recent interview. “Not a lot of people know me and not a lot of people probably know much about Belize, so it’s a nice thing.”

It should be clarified that McCaulay’s 11 goals came in the early, and often chaotic, rounds of qualifying in the CONCACAF zone. The Belize City-born striker, lean and with a sharp turn of pace, scored four over two legs against Montserrat, an island in the Caribbean who’s population declined by two-thirds since a giant volcano erupted in 1995. Even so, his hat-trick in the first leg – the first game played by any nation en route to Brazil 2014 – hinted at a player who knew his way to goal. “What a feeling,” he said after the contest. “Scoring three goals in a World Cup qualifier is a truly special thing.”
