Jedd Ebanks says Cayman are only focusing on a win this Friday as he along with his fellow teammates prepare for the visit of Suriname.

The Cayman Islands National Team welcome The Suriname National Team to the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in George Town this Friday night at 7.30pm and the Elite Midfielder believes that Cayman has what it takes to win.

“I don’t think Suriname will be coming to the Cayman Islands to look for a point,” he said. “We know that they are going to come at us and play for the win, we will also be playing for the win, our aim is to make sure we win every single game that we play at home and  I don’t see why we can’t start on Friday.

“I’m really looking forward to it, it’s exciting times. The game in Suriname was very close and I believe that with the home fans behind us we can push on and get our first win in this Qualifying Campaign”.

Ebanks, who represents current Cayman Premier League Champions Elite Sports Club, will be earning his Fifth Senior Cap for the Cayman Islands. Ebanks expressed how honored he is to be involved in the squad and represent the Cayman Islands in such a prestigious tournament.

One familiar face who Ebanks admits he’d be more than comfortable sharing the pitch with is fellow Elite SC Midfielder Jairo Sanchez-Scott. The pair have both impressed at Elite SC and share a good understanding in the middle of the park.

The Cayman Islands Senior Men’s National Team under the supervision of the Technical Director, Carl Brown, and the Fitness Coach, Thiago Cunha are fully aware that they face an uphill battle as they head into their third game of their 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Campaign. Suriname narrowly beat Cayman 1:0 in Caymans opening game of this World Cup Campaign.

Suriname is currently Ranked 113 in the FIFA World Rankings, while the Cayman Islands sit at 174. The game this Friday is seen as a must win for Cayman if the Cayman Islands have any chance of advancing to the next stage of Qualification. Cayman currently prop up Group A but a win Friday can change the whole complexion of the Group.
