After meeting Belize for the first time ever last year in the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship, the Barbados senior men’s team will be meeting the Central American side on different terms next weekend.

As both teams ready themselves for the upcoming inaugural CONCACAF Nations League, they will going head-to-head in an international friendly on June 3.

With both teams seeking qualification to League B of the competition, they will be getting in some much needed competition ahead of their assignments as they are slated to play two games in the coming weeks.

Barbados will be sporting the home-field edge first as the first match is scheduled for the Wildey Astroturf at 7 p.m. next Sunday.

After playing to a draw in their last international outing against Bermuda at the end of March, the squad should be seeing a few new locally-based additions as well as a young Kaeson Trench, once he gets his release from his MLS club Toronto FC.

Barbados Football Association technical director Ahmed Mohamed said that preparations ahead of the match were going well and the team were looking forward to the challenge.

“The boys are looking good. Mentally, the team are looking really ready for that game. Normally we only play against Caribbean countries and this is something different to what they are used to and from that perspective, the team are ready. They can’t wait to play against them. We do know that Belize is a good team – better than us in terms of game experience. But we have no fear of them and I am expecting a very good and competitive game,.” he said.

With the doors opening at 6 p.m., supporters are encouraged to come out in their colours to rally behind our boys in the home-leg of the friendlies. Admission is set at $15. (BFA)
