He knows this could be the one chance to stake his claim for selection on the Concacaf Gold Cup team. Young Shahdon Winchester has scored two goals in consecutive weeks for Finnish Pro league team Jaro FF since the news broke of his inclusion on the national team for the upcoming friendlies against Romania and Estonia.

Fully recovered from a recent hernia operation, the ex-W Connection frontman is eager to link up with former teammates Daneil Cyrus and Joevin Jones, having all played on the national Under-20 and Under-23 teams.

“When I got the call, honestly, I was a bit surprised because I thought the team was finalised already but at the same time very happy because it’s always a pleasure to represent your country,” Winchester said.

“I have waited a while for my recall to the national team and now that I got it with much more experience and being in the European environment week in week out I think I’m more prepared for the task now than I was a couple years ago. I’m very eager to link back up with the boys and face these two European teams next week,” he added.
