Four Mexican officials have been appointed to take charge of this country’s crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier against Honduras at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Friday September 1st. Fernando Guerrero Ramirez will be the referee while his assistants will be Marcos Quintero Huitron and Andres Hernandez Delgado. The Fourth official is Luis Enrique Aguirre.
Ramirez is a 36-year-old who officiates in the Mexican Premier League. He has also officiated at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Copa Centroamericana, CONCACAF Champions League, Copa Libertadores and Indian Super League.
The T&T team will begin training on Monday ahead of the August 24th International Friendly versus Jamaica at the Hasely Crawford Stadium. The team will continue its preparations following that fixture for the Honduras encounter.
Costa Rican-based forward Jamille Boatswain meantime is anticipating a call-up from head coach Dennis Lawrence for the qualifier and is hoping he has better luck this time around. Boatswain made his debut for Alajuelense in the Costa Rican league earlier this month.
“It’s a huge period for us now. I am feeling very good at the moment having made by debut for Alajuelense and my fitness is near tops at the moment,” Boatswain told TTFA Media.
“Obviously the World Cup qualifiers is beginning to take the main focus again because we are about two weeks away. Hopefully things will work out well for us. There have been some tough calls against us in recent games but I think once we put our heads down and let the football take care of things then is a good possibility we can come out on top,” Boatswain said.
