Sealy on Nations League home opener: ‘We are going to put on a show for you’

Cayman Islands men’s national football captain Ramon Sealy assured the fans in attendance Saturday (17 November) they’ll see an energized squad when the team takes the pitch for the first home game in the CONCACAF Nations League qualifying match versus St. Lucia.

“The team is looking forward to the game. Every time you play a team in front of your home fans, you always want to do well,” said Sealy. “We want to put on a performance, score some goals, and get the crowd behind us early in the game.”

Cayman’s men’s senior nationals will search for both their first win of the qualifying stage, and their first goal when they take the pitch at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex. Having lost 4-0 to Jamaica in September, followed by a 3-0 loss to the Dominican Republic in October, Sealy says the game plan will be key.

“We got more opportunities versus the Dominican Republic than we did versus Jamaica. We’ve been working on more possession which I think can help us. If we can possess the ball, we can create more opportunities.”

St. Lucia is coming off a 3-0 win over Antigua in Barbuda, after a 2-1 loss to Haiti. Sealy says the offense needs to be more aggressive on home soil.

“Hopefully my forwards have their shooting boots on, and are able to make the keeper work. If we build up well, let’s make the keeper work. We want to give the fans something to cheer about.”

Sealy says the lineup will be drastically different from the team that took the field in the Dominican.

“I don’t want to give away too much at the moment. Definitely Joshua Frederick will be inserted back into the lineup on defense.”

Cayman versus St. Lucia kicks off at 8:00 pm at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex. Cayman will face Montserrat in the fourth and final qualifying match 23rd March to determine the seeding for next year’s inaugural CONCACAF Nations League.
