Keith Griffith, US Virgin Islands coach
Let’s put it this way, it’s very tough group, and it should be a very exciting experience for us. All week I’ve been getting animated phone calls from the players. They want to start training right away to prepare for the upcoming games. Just the idea of actually playing is truly incredible. There’s an expression I want you to note down: ‘If your mind can conceive it, then you can achieve it.’ So who knows? The sky’s the limit for this wonderful group of lads.
Manuel Reinaldo Bilces, Curacao coach
We’ve put together an all-encompassing nine-day programme with the different members of the team and management. The goal of this new programme is to evaluate the technical and physical abilities of the players in order to establish their current condition. We also intend to play two practice games here before we begin the next phase of qualifying.
