Technical Director forthe Antigua and Barbuda Football Association (ABFA), Rolston “Debu” Williams, has described as “ruthless,” the senior national team’s 6-0 trouncing of the Bahamas in the CONCACAF Nations League on Friday.
Playing in the Bahamas, England-based Myles Weston scored a hattrick while Calaum Martin, another England-based player, scored twice. Veteran national and SAP player, Peter “Big Pete” Byers scored the other goal for the Benna Boys.
Williams said the players were eager to redeem themselves following a heartbreaking 3-0 loss to St. Lucia last month.
“As you know, after the match against St. Lucia here we were very sad for a long time and couldn’t wait for this game to redeem ourselves and the players were quite eager for this encounter and I thought they were ruthless. They were instructed to respect the opponents, look at them and see their qualities and then we assessed the situation and then we could start applying more pressure in the game,” he said.
The win puts Antigua and Barbuda on three points and 13th on the standings in the North and Central American zone.
Williams said he is hoping to secure friendly matches for the local-based players as they continue to prepare for their next fixture.
“In terms of the local guys, they need to be playing at a high level and the only how this is going to raise is if they play favourable opponents and at a higher intensity. [Going to Bahamas] they knew what was in front of them and in spite of who the personnel are that they would have to pull together to get the job done and so, I think collectively they played as a unit,” the TD said.
Antigua and Barbuda will play away to Martinique on November 19 before hosting Curacao on March 25 next year.
Although some members of the team arrived on Saturday, the remaining players are scheduled to arrive on Monday.
