Haiti defeats Guyana’s Golden Jags in round 2 of CFU championship – 15th Nov 2012
Guyana’s Golden Jaguars started round 2 of the CFU championship losing 1-o against Haiti. They face hosts Grenada on Friday and French Guiana 2 days later, in a group described as tough by Head Coach, Jamaal Shabazz. The other 2 teams in the Group are Hosts, Grenada and French Guiana. They played to a 1 all draw last evening also.
Shabazz said, some players are cold at the moment, so he will have to shake things up a bit in order to get them firing for this round. Guyana topped group 2 in the previous round with wins over Curacao and St. lucia and a loss to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
While they will be looking to up their game to the levels seen in the FIFA 2014 qualifiers, there are still some admin issues distracting the team. Capitol News’ Gordon Moseley spoke with Shabazz in Grenada, and he said, that 3 players who were supposed to travel with the team to Grenada did not show up at the Airport, even though they had no problems with the stipend.
