"How can you put into words the most memorable football experience our country has ever embarked on? To be selected as the best it has to offer up against massive world nations throughout the Concacaf region. The stadiums, the hotels, the transport... Surreal. I, Dale Eve, Bermuda’s number 1 GK had no idea what I was in for. All I could do was be ready...
Goalkeepers are either loved or hated in football. It takes a mentally fit team of us to educate and encourage one another for even one game. John Moreira lead myself, Jahquil Hill and Quinacio Hunt through the fight of the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup. Although the team itself did not push past the first round, the goalkeeping warriors won the country’s respect with an impressive showcase of matches. Tough training sessions and a top scoring save record shows just how important it is to have a top class coach. I wouldn’t have been ready without the man himself"
"John Moreira is an awesome coach. We have worked together for a few years now in the Bermuda national team. He has a great one on one approach with us goal keepers. I have had my own personal issues in and around the game with former UK Premier league club Stoke city and Bermuda First team squad and John never gave up on believing in me.
He has been an amazing mentor and Coach. We have sat in and talked on numerous occasions to help better myself and my goalkeeping. His sessions and drills are very technical and we assess, discuss and correct all areas of my goalkeeping where need be.
I can always look to John for guidance and advice on and off the pitch. We keep in contact even whilst we aren’t on a campaign together and I always get an honest opinion from such a great coach. He has worked with many top level GK’s and coaches"
