GFF names 22-man squad ahead of back-to-back engagements
CONCACAF Nations League
…Sese Norville and Trayon Bobb recalled
Ahead of two very important encounters in four days in the CONCACAF Nations League, Golden Jaguars Head Coach Márcio Máximo has released the names of players making up his 22-man squad that takes on Antigua and Barbuda on Friday, October 11 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and on Monday, October 14 here at the Leonora National Track & Field Centre.
Boasting a balance of local and overseas-based players, the Golden Jaguars will be aiming for back-to-back wins in their quest to further consolidate their current second place in Group C of League B where they are on three points, the same as their opponents Antigua and Barbuda, but with a superior goal difference of -3, as compared to Antigua and Barbuda’s -5.
The local-based players have been going through their paces with Head of Sports Science, Wilson Toledo and Head Coach Máximo ever since Guyana’s 0-4 loss to Jamaica, in order to be fit and ready to claim full points over the busy weekend.
The players and staff, who will be sporting the new official uniform, apparel and equipment, compliments of the recently-inked deal with Capelli Sports, arrived in the Land of the ‘Benna Boys’ on Tuesday. According to Head Coach Máximo, they already had a session on Tuesday afternoon and are prepared for a physical encounter against the hosts.“For me, the team is coming good; after we arrived, we had a good session with the players on Tuesday and we also trained on Wednesday and I think that they have all held well so far and are focused on the task.
“They understand our tactical approach for this game. Antigua is a very physical team and we should be smart to use our strategy well to win the game. We are very optimistic as we look forward to our international players blending well with the local players to do us well; I think we can take a win on Friday,” the Head Coach stated.
Recalled to the team are Goalkeeper Sese Norville, defenders Kadell Daniel and Kevin Dundas, midfielder Elliot Bonds along with forwards Trayon Bobb and Emery Welshman.Guyana will face the home team from 17:00h on Friday at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and return to these shores on Saturday ahead on next Monday’s return match against the Antiguans at the Leonora National Track & Field Centre from 20:00h.
