    Guyana aiming high at CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship

    GEORGETOWN, Guyana – A Guyana men’s national team will compete in the finals of a CONCACAF tournament for the first time on February 20, when it meets the host Bahamas in the 2017 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship.

    Head coach Abdulla Hamid, who announced a 12-man squad last week, has been pleased with his side’s level of preparation.

    “We have been training intensely for two-and-a-half months and the team is very motivated,” said the former FIFA referee. “The mind-set among team members is great. They’re excited and ready to go to make Guyana proud. This is our first time in this major tournament, so we are eager to make a good impression.”

    The first objective is to advance out of a group that also includes Belize and Jamaica.

    “When you aim high, you will do well,” Hamid stressed. “We want to finish in the top two in the group stage and from there we plan accordingly on the next step. Guyana doesn’t play in many CONCACAF events, so we want to ensure we leave a good impression.”

    Guyana’s last appearance in a Confederation competition came in 1988 at the CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament. The Golden Jaguars reached the final round, playing Mexico and Guatemala.
