Mekeil Williams eager to show his worth.

Defender Mekeil Williams will head off to Guatemala to continue his club career once this country’s run at the CONCACAF Gold Cup ends later this month.

Having already played professionally in Denmark and Poland in the past, the W Connection player wants to keep adding experience to his name.

“It’s a good move for me at this time but I really want to keep pushing myself to get back into Europe. I think the stage is where a lot of players want to be on and I’ve had a chance to experience it already. Hopefully now with the time I am getting now with the senior team, it can help me move on to a higher level,” Williams said.

He wants to make his father and other family members look on proudly at his achievements.

“I’m trying to make them feel satisfied that I can reach somewhere. My dad always wanted to play the game but he didn’t get opportunities like me and now he’s living this chance through me so I have to keep setting goals and pushing myself to achieve them.”

Williams played for T&T at the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt and wants to return to the World Cup stage alongside some of his longtime teammates who made the trip to the Pyramids with him like Kevin Molino, Aubrey David, Daneil Cyrus, Sheldon Bateau and others.

“Of course I have dreams to play in another World Cup. We have the qualifiers for Russia this year and I think if I can keep my level up and stay injury free then I would play a part in helping the country get to another World Cup,” Williams said.
