Guyana’s Golden Jaguars will be seeking to maintain their unbeaten run
so far this year (2 wins 1 draw) when they take on Suriname on Thursday April 30, 2015 at the Andre Kamperven Stadium in the Dutch speaking country.
The announcement was made yesterday via a press release issued by the Guyana Football Federation (GFF).
The release stated that Head Coach of the Senior Men’s National Team Jamaal Shabazz is looking forward to the challenge noting that, “Suriname is a formidable opponent and we have had joyous moments and heart breaking moments against them. Matches against “the Dutch” mean more than football to Guyana; it’s a huge rivalry that goes way back to both our colonial pasts.”
In terms of the team setup he notes, “Against Grenada we used only five players who started against St. Lucia and now we have a great opportunity to widen the pool. When one considers that in the three friendly matches we have played so far this year, seven Under-23s have featured prominently, which shows that we are starting to see depth in the squad. Additionally, games outside of the FIFA match window allow us a great opportunity to keep bodies on the pitch and our eyes on the prize.”
Chairman of the GFF Normalization Committee Mr. Clinton Urling noted that the committee members are pleased with the progress of the Senior Men’s squad since they assumed the leadership of the GFF and this represents another tangible example of the federation putting football first and above all. “It also gives the team adequate practice for our first World Cup Qualifier in June”, he added.
