What a goal, coming from an unexpected long pass from left field! The Soca Warriors have scored against the run of play. What pride, what joy!!!
The payment by the government to these men who represented our country with pride and honour is indeed welcome news. What they did for this country in 2006 cannot be replicated, they took us to new heights and made this country proud. We will forever be the smallest country to qualify for the World Cup, however, one with the biggest heart. To battle to to a goalless draw against Sweden, to stretch the inventors of the game, England, and to put in a commendable effort against Paraguay did wonders for our pride. What happened afterwards could only be described as a stain on our football history. Let’s hope we will be a part of the world’s biggest party in 2018, and let hope this payment would be the catalyst to getting us there. Well done government.
