GEORGETOWN, Guyana -- St. Vincent & the Grenadines arrived in South America on Friday for its second round, second leg World Cup qualifier against host Guyana.
The series opened Wednesday with a 2-2 draw as the Vincy Heat twice recovered from one-goal deficits.
While the Guyanese will have an advantage with two away goals in the bank, SVG head coach Cornelius Huggins is targeting outright victory on Sunday at Providence Stadium.
“To be truthful, the team ready, we ready,” remarked the 40-year-old. “They know what’s the job at hand and want to just complete this mission here on Sunday. We have to get a win.”
The former SVG international defender went on to acknowledge that despite creating numerous opportunities and netting two goals at home, finishing issues need to be addressed.
Captain Dorren Hamlet echoed similar sentiments, but remained confident his team could get the job done on the road despite not obtaining the desired result at the Arnos Vale Playing Field.
“Once we take our chances in this second leg,” said the 25-year-old. “I think we should move forward.”
Mindful that if the game was to end with same result, extra time would be required to determine the side to advance, Huggins stated: “We really don’t want to go to that. We have to win this game in 90 minutes.”
