W Connection Jomal Williams says he feels more mature and confident as a member of the National Under-20 team and has his mind set on being an exemplar to his teammates for the remainder of their Under-20 World Cup qualifying campaign.
Williams, who was a member of the previous Olympic team, scored two vital goals in T&T’s victories over Guyana and St Vincent/Grenadines in Round 1 of the Under-20 campaign last month. He is viewed as one of the senior players on the squad due to his involvement with the T&T Under-23s where he saw action in T&T’s final qualifier against Honduras in Los Angeles.
“I feel like a senior player on the Under-20 team but it’s more than that. I see myself as a player who can help the younger ones and lead by example. I want to pass on my experience and talk to them in whatever situations necessary,” Williams said.
“The experience with the Olympic team helped me a lot. I am a bit more composed now and when I think that things are getting out of hand I am learning how to bring myself back down to earth and how to work in the best interest of the team. I hope I can continue to do this to help our chances because we all want to qualify for the Under-20 World Cup.”
