U20s head to Dominican Republic

For the Cayman Islands U20 women’s team the journey starts here.

Next month they head off to the Dominican Republic to compete in the final stages of the CFU World Cup qualifiers.

If successful they will face the best teams from the Caribbean and North America in March at the final stages of qualification.

Then – if all goes to plan – the girls will be heading to Uzbekistan to face the best footballers in the world.

“There’s nothing better than playing with the big boys, or should I say big girls.” said Andrew Zarcznski, from the Cayman Islands Football Association.

“It’s what we all aspire too, putting yourself up against stiff competition who really know what they are doing in the box. I’ve been there and done that, now it’s the chance of the Under 20s.

“They have a great opportunity to really progress in this competition and I know from the dedication they have shown they will be over the moon if that happens.”

Next month the team will face girls from the Dominican, Jamaica and Haiti with only one thing on their mind – victory.

Before heading to the competition, the team took part in a training session on Monday night at Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

“We smashed it in the last round,” said Zarcznski. “With a wonderful 4-0 drubbing against Suriname. If the team can show the same commitment and drive then they can really go all
the way.”
