The Barbados Under-17 girls’ national football team will be looking to go one step further and qualify for the 2022 Concacaf Championship when the competition begins next week at the IMG Academy in Florida.
The Bajan “belles” have been drawn in Group B for the preliminary round and are set to start their campaign against St Vincent and the Grenadines on October 20.
Head coach Richard Forde told Weekend Sport he was optimistic about the team’s chances of advancing to the group stage of the competition.
In 2017, despite being unbeaten, Barbados had to settle for second position and missed out on the next round after Cuba thrashed Guyana 8-0 in the final match of the tournament. (AGB)
