This will be excellent for our rankings - we easily have the quality to see Antigua off, if we don't get complacent. Them being above us in the rankings should see us gain some valuable points :)

ANTIGUA/BARBUDA CONFIDENT AHEAD OF CARIBBEAN CUP 'SEMIS' NEXT WEEK IN T&T

With his team now holding the number one ranked position among Caribbean countries on the FIFA World rankings, Antigua//Barbuda head coach Rolston Williams believes they can defeat any team in the Caribbean.

Willams was speaking as he looked ahead to the Caribbean Cup semi final round which kicks off on Wednesday at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva. Antigua faces St Lucia from 6pm. They will take on hosts Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday.

“I am not looking at no one team; we have a tournament to play and we have to take one game at a time. I think Antigua is good enough to play with any team in the Caribbean, so to say one team is more important than the other. We will have to win all three games, so we’ll take one game at a time; that’s the approach we’ll take,” Williams said. 

Antigua scored ten goals in three Caribbean Cup qualifying matches last month, defeating Anguilla 6-0, also beating Dominican Republic and St Vincent/Grenadines 2-1. Their squad includes six UK-based professionals including Hull City striker Calaum Martin and Swansea City defender Connor Peters.

Antiguan FA President Everton Gonsalves is also basking in the glory of this team’s current run of success, adding “Our youth development programmes are up in the upper echelons in terms of the Caribbean,” he said. “You would have seen our level of play at the Under-17 level, at the Under-20 level and certainly at the female level but I think the real (meat) of the matter is the success of the men’s senior national team

Soca in mih vein, Soca in meh blood
Soca in yuh vein, Soca in blood,
Soca in we vein, Soca in we blood,
It's a heart of love, can't deny soca, cuz its good fuh de soul...

Are those rankings correct? Is Antigua really the #1 in the Caribbean?

On paper Antigua is not the number one team and not even  number number 2. The number one team in the Caribbean right now is Martinique followed by French Guiana based on last 10 games wins /losses ( Both undefeated in last 5 games). Teams in the CFU  such as Guadeloupe, French Guiana,  Martinique, Bonaire etc..are  not ranked because they are not  Members of FIFA. If Martinique and French Guiana could be ranked, Antigua wouldn't have been the number team in the CFU.  Here is how Antigua got to be number 1 in the Caribbean right now:

The number 1 spot more often than not usually occupied by Jamaica, Trinidad , Haiti and Cuba.

Jamaica  is win-less in the last 5 games (1-2 VS Serbia, 0-1 VS Switzerland, 2-2 VS Egypt, 0-8 VS France and 1-3 VS Canada)
Trinidad Winless in the last 2 games ( 0-3 Vs Argentina,  0-2 Vs iran)
Haiti winless in the last four games (0-1 vs Salvador, 1-4 VS Korea, 0-0 VS Kosovo, 0-1 VS Chili)

Cuba does not / rarely play friendlies. They're only active in tournament so they can never hold on to the number spot even though they won it last year.. Antigua won 3 straight in their CFU conference and all three teams being FIFA Member, that helped them immensely in the ranking.

Next week will be reality check for the number one team in the Caribbean. Their fans all over social media  bragging about being number 1 in the Caribbean. Well, next week, It will be time for their coach and players to put up or shut up. Stay tune!

Geez, why is everybody hot and sweaty over who is number one. Ranking is over-rated. But it is a necessary evil for FIFA evaluation. Let the fans blow some steam, nah!!!! They have every right to be over exuberant. Until the final whistle on Friday's game. I just hope TT coach thinking past AB. They will poison us if our prima donnas go on the field with an attitude.

Coach says Benna Boys ready for challenge

Coach says Benna Boys ready for challenge
By Neto Baptiste  (Antigua Observer)


Head coach of the senior national football team Rolston “Debu” Williams said despite knowing little about their first opponent in the second round of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Caribbean Cup, he believes Antigua & Barbuda Benna Boys are equipped to take on any challenge.

Benna Boys will take on St Lucia, opponents they haven’t face in over three years, when they open their Group Seven campaign in Trinidad tomorrow (Wednesday).

Williams is however, confident of a victory.

“I believe in something Arsčne Wenger said that if you prepare well, I don’t think you have to study the opponent so much. The opponent will study you and once his players go and play his tactics, he doesn’t believe he will lose the game. I don’t think that St Lucia are so different from (Dominican Republic) or St Vincent or they may not be better at all than those teams. We will just have to look at them in the game, and if we have to make changes, then we will make changes quickly,” he said.

In their last meeting, a friendly at the Antigua Recreation Grounds (ARG) in 2011, Antigua & Barbuda hammered St Lucia 6-0.

Williams believes that changes made to the Antigua & Barbuda squad ahead of Wednesday’s match, have served to strengthen the team going forward.

“I think the players that come in are stronger players and more experienced players. One who was here before in Zane Angol; he is a very good player and players for Motherwell FC and the next player, Jorrin John of Nuneaton FC, this is his first time but he seems to be a very good player too,” the coach said.

“Etty (Randolph Burton) has also come into the team because one of the players (overseas-based) that should come down changed his mind at the last minute so we had to get a next midfielder to fit in and I think Etty was the ideal individual to fit that spot,” Williams added.

The coach, who had expressed small concerns over the team’s inability to score a higher percentage of their “easy scoring opportunities” during the competition’s first round in Antigua, is optimistic there will be improvements in that aspect of the team’s game.

“What is good is that from since that, the players have been playing matches and so therefore, they should be working on that with their clubs and they are shooting goals in the Premier Division league so they should be a lot more confident. I can’t speak much for the English guys except I know they are playing too, but I can speak more for the locals,” Williams said.

Following tomorrow’s opener against St Lucia, the Benna Boys will take on the Dominican Republic on Friday before facing hosts Trinidad & Tobago on Sunday.
