Carlos Roberto Bernárdez García (born 28 December 1992) is a Belizean footballer who plays as a forward for Honduran club Platense FC and the Belize national team.

Early life[edit]

Bernárdez comes from a Honduran family, but he was born in Belize while his parents were en route to the United States.[3] At eight months old, his mother left him in Olanchito, the town where his family lived.[3]

International career[edit]

As Bernárdez was raised in Honduras and identifies himself as a Honduran, his intention was to play for the Honduras national team.[3] He ultimately accepted a call-up to represent Belize in 2019, and made his debut on 30 August 2019 in a friendly against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.[4]
