Former Golden Jaguars head coach Wayne Dover is quietly optimistic of the team’s chances of progressing from the group stage in the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
In an exclusive interview with Stabroek Sport, Dover said, “I am optimistic (about the team) progressing. Trinidad and Tobago, over the years, is one of our toughest opponents in football but once, we knocked them out of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, and only recently as 2017, we drew with them. I think we have a chance with them. Panama, we played in a friendly in 2012 and competed despite losing 2-0.”
He further said, “However, Panama has risen and qualified for the World Cup and was competitive, but I am optimistic we can secure a positive result and given that our opening game (is) against the USA, we want to approach that game very cautiously but with an aim of getting a draw and then fancy our chances against the others to progress.”….
