FORT LAUDERDALE – Captain of the Barbados Tridents national football team, Rashad Jules returned to the side after sitting out the trip last month to the Dominican Republic with an injured right ankle.

Jules was named one of nine attacking players in the 24-member squad of head coach Russell Latapy to contest the Concacaf Gold Cup qualifiers in this American city, and the winger indicated his willingness and eagerness to deliver the goods once again for Barbados on the international stage.

Jules is one of the elder statesmen in the team with over 40 caps to his name and he admitted his frustration at missing out on the matches last month with the new-look unit of the Tridents.

Fully fit and back in the squad, Jules is focused on helping the Tridents qualify for their first major tournament. (NM)
