GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Finland-based Walter Moore is confident that Guyana has what it takes to beat host Suriname on Saturday, when the sides meet at Andre Kamperveen Stadium to open third-round, Group 1 play in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men's Caribbean Cup.

The 32-year-old defender was emphatic in his stance on the topic.

“It is always a battle between us and we always want to beat them,” said Moore about playing Guyana’s neighbor to the east. “Being encamped for the past three days, I can tell you that the atmosphere is just like 2011 when we played Trinidad & Tobago. Everyone is relaxed, focused and ready to go. 

“Along with the coach and the system that we play I don’t see us not doing well. It is all up to us to execute what we know all too well on the field of play.” 

In their last meeting on February 21, 2016, Guyana got two goals from Gregory Richardson in a 2-0 win at home. Richardson isn’t on the current roster, but Moore trusts that the Golden Jaguars have more than enough personnel options to secure a victory.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that we cannot come away with three points,” the FF Jaro standout finished.
