“This team, I’ve worked three months with them. I received one hundred and sixty-eight players for the tryouts. In the tryouts we selected twenty-five players for the Cayman Islands. After the Cayman Islands we were down to eighteen players but when we came back some players, maybe because of discipline or the level of [expectations], five players who went to Cayman are not here. There were forty players for this process and right now we have twenty-six players and only eighteen players will participate in the tournament.”

“Playing left wing is really hard because it’s a big role because you have to help the team in attacking and you have to be very defensive on the team and you have to help because you’re only playing with three defenders. So the left wing plays a big role. Training is from Friday and Saturday and Sunday, two times a day on Saturday and it’s very hard. It’s very intense training that we have so I think we will be prepared good enough for the tournament.”
