Tridents head off to El Salvador

The Tridents in training leading up to Saturday's match-up with El Salvador

As the November date for Barbados' first home game in the Concacaf Nations League draws nearer, the Bajan Tridents continue their campaign in the inaugural competition. Flying out of the island early this morning for Central America, the senior national men's team are set to take on El Salvador this coming weekend.

Scheduled to play their second game in the competition after a 2-2 draw against Guyana last month, the Tridents will not have it easy against an at-home El Salvador on Saturday night at 10:00 PM Barbados time. Barbados Football Association Technical Director Ahmed Mohamed said that he expected things to go well. “I wouldn't call it a big challenge because football is played 90 minutes, and we are well-prepared mentally and physically so the boys are very prepared for that very interesting game. I call it an interesting game because things are clear – we are the underdogs – and we are excited to play in front of such a crowd. For the majority of the players, it is the first time that they will be playing in such a large crowd.” he said.

Playing at the Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador which has a capacity of 45,000 for football games, Mohamed made note of the fact that many thought that the size of the crowd would adversely affect his team. He however said that he was sure they would not be phased. “That wouldn't affect us either. The majority of people are thinking because of the crowd, the home advantage, the high altitude – we know all of that and football is played 90 minutes. One thing is sure, for those 90 minutes we will have enough discipline to ensure that we get a positive result.”

With teams in the past having been affected by a change in altitude, Mohamed said that he was able to make the most of what he had, and felt confident that they would do well under the conditions. “We do not have the necessary equipment to train for the altitude, but we are only there for a short time and I hope it does not affect us that much. It might affect us a bit but I'm quite sure we will get the job done even though we know the air will be a bit thin to play for us.” Mohamed explained.

Once again casting attention to massive size of the stadium slated to host the game, Mohamed said that the plan was to take home the win. “The two games are two different games. Guyana was totally different and El Salvador is El Salvador. For every one in Concacaf who is going into Cuscatlan to play, it will not be easy. What I am expecting from my players is to have the discipline and that is 90 minutes. They are the home team. They will come and put us under pressure from the first second and we need to have the right concept for that.” he said.
