    GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman – Cayman Islands defender Chelsea Greene backs the national team to recover from a loss in its opening game in the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under 20 Championship.

    Mexico registered a 6-0 win over the tournament’s host on Friday in front a capacity crowd of 3,500 at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

    Greene and the Cayman backline were tested the entire game by a talented Mexican strike force led by Tanya Samarzich, who netted a hat-trick within the first 35 minutes.

    The 16-year old-blamed nerves for a slow start.

    “We were ready, but we didn’t know what to expect from Mexico and it took us a while to get into the game,” Greene told CONCACAF.com.  “We did pretty well in the second half, playing better football.

    “We need to get into our game quicker in the next two games and be better prepared mentally.”

    Cayman meets Caribbean foe Trinidad & Tobago on Sunday, before taking on Honduras two days later in group stage’s curtain closer.

    For Greene, the CONCACAF Women’s Under 20 tournament is her second shot in a confederation finals.

    At only 12-years-old, she played in all three of Cayman’s games at the 2010 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship in Costa Rica, even captaining the squad in a 1-0 win over of Haiti (highlights here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X_sYcFjyhk).

    “We had a strong team in 2009,” she remembered fondly.  “Being the youngest was a great experience.  I wasn’t expecting it, but I was very happy.”

    Greene and the rest of her teammates hope to make some more memories, at home, this time around.
