Barbados’ Under-17 football squad departed the Grantley Adams International Airport this afternoon full of confidence for the final round of the Caribbean Football Union qualifiers in Haiti.
Head coach Colin Harewood said he expected the local lads to deliver a good performance against the likes of Trinidad and Tobago, St Lucia and hosts Haiti in order to book their place to play in the FIFA World Cup.
“The past two months have been great, the guys have been working hard at practice and I am confident the guys will do well on the tour,” Harewood said.
He added: “The game plan is to go out there and play together as a team and try to set early.”
Captain Torian Went told Barbados TODAY the team was hoping to leave a legacy by playing well in Haiti in order to advance to the finals and then come out victorious in the final once they got there.
“We believe we can do well and qualify but football is played on the day. But I believe in the team and they believe in me and the motto of this team is ‘Believe’ and we all have the passion and dream of going to the World Cup so we will play hard to make sure we qualify,” Went said.
