Andre Boucaud vs Portsmouth (September 16, 2014)

Andre Boucaud was delighted to be called up to represent Trinidad and Tobago, having already made 17 appearances for the Caribbean Side.

“It’s always a big thing for me to be called up for my country, I’ll be going away for a week or so and hopefully while I’m away the boys can pick up some good results.

“Playing international football is huge, whatever nation or country it is. It’s a privilege for me to be called up and it’s also a great opportunity to play against players from different parts of the world who play in different leagues and have different skills.

“At international level you’re playing against some of the best players in the world. A couple of months ago we played against Argentina and play against Messi. If I didn’t play for Trinidad and Tobago, playing international football, I’d never have got that opportunity so I’m grateful."

The midfielder will also miss two matches for the club, but he insists he'll be back ready fighting for his place when he returns.

“It is always hard missing those games, and if someone does come in, performs and they do well, they stay in the team, it’s as simple as that. It’d be the same if it was someone else and I got my chance to get a spot. I’m confident I can come back and prove myself again in training."
