The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has officially invited only one senior Golden Jaguar
player home to take part in the upcoming Caribbean Cup, whilst failing to offer any other Golden Jaguar based abroad the opportunity to come back and represent Guyana.
Walter Moore is the only player included in the upcoming CFU squad and will fly to Guyana from Kazakhstan, where he currently plays club football. Whilst Walter Moore has chosen to come home and represent his country Guyana, in doing so, some support groups are angered that Moore’s overseas-based Guyana team-mates have been neglected by the current administration. Young Trayon Bobb, Guyana’s brightest star in the World Cup qualifiers, has been over-looked and the question is yet to be answered by the GFF as to why.
Speaking exclusively, Walter Moore said ‘’Yes I got called up, it’s always a privilege to play for my country, I came through all levels of football in Guyana, I’m in my peak and I don’t think I have long left in this sport, so I want to give back to Guyanese football’’.
Asked why he thought other overseas-based players such as Christopher Nurse, Trayon Bobb, JP Rodrigues and Carl Cort were not invited by the GFF, Moore said, ‘’I’m not sure why those guys were not called up but they played as hard as I did every time…they are talented and bring a lot to the team, they can motivate and lead, we would benefit from them (playing for Guyana)’’.
Moore went on to say that he felt he was justified in choosing to play for the National Team despite many of his colleagues being left in the wilderness by the GFF, ‘’every opportunity I get I will play and that’s just my decision and at the end of the day if I can inspire a young player then that’s what I want’’
The Caribbean Cup begins on 3rdSeptember, with Guyana playing their games in St Kitts& Nevis under the management of Denzil Thompson. However, the question remains, with an abundance of Guyanese talent playing abroad, why is Walter Moore the only one coming home? (Santokie Nagulendran)
