It was a game which we may
wish to remember as the night
when the warriors attempted to
derail the mighty Mexico.
It is fair to compliment the efforts
of the team on the result and their
success in reaching the quarter
finals in the tournament.
It is not good developmental
football sense to start consoling
ourselves over the distance that the
team had reached before we take
a closer view at the statistics and
the occurrences of the matches
The previous comments on the
matches which brought them to
the quarter finals were well justified
and if not taken out of context,
should have offered some level of
hope for the future.
Nevertheless, the field of play is
where it all happens and it is exactly
where there is need for analysis in
order to determine whether we have
progressed in our doings over the
length of this tournament from it s
After seeing the performance
against Honduras, we were certainly
left with hope that maybe, just
maybe, the lads may be driven by
the wonderful feeling of a victory
against one of the leading teams in
My first observation prior to the
start of the match was the unusual
formula of the starting team and
was truly taken aback by the players
in their selected positions.
Normally, I would refrain from
sharing my view on that aspect of
the team, simply because I have
not been seeing them at practice
sessions leading to the tournament.
But I honestly believe that I can
comfortably say that Carlos
Edwards could not have changed
his style of play at this stage of his
life in order to perform as good at
left midfield as he has played during
his career at right wing back.
The same can be said of Daniel
Cyrus, Keon Daniel, Darryl Roberts,
all players who have identified firm-
ly in specific positions and literally
showed their worth in the original
This was my first observation
and I still decided to see whether
Near and yet so far for Warriors
the technical staff had seen something
which would have encouraged this dras-
The answer is clearly in the negative.
Edwards travelling down the left flank
was a misfit and did not produce one
single cross from the left side.
Daniel Cyrus demonstrated his com-
petence to win the ball when defending,
but unfortunately does not possess the
skill of crossing the ball from the fight
I am brave enough to assume that
the reason for wing midfielders was to
serve the aerial ability of Kenwyne Jones,
Cornell Glenn and Darryl Roberts to
outplay the shorter Mexicans from
deliveries on the flanks.
That did not happen and with the
exception of a right footed cross by
Daniel from the left side and another
from Daniel on the fight, there was no
I reckon that these were serious errors
of judgment which may well have retard-
ed the expected quality of play.
Strangely, the athleticism of our play-
ers appeared to have upset the Mexicans
who failed to operate their chemistry in
midfield with their artistic looking short
passing game. The warriors even
appeared to monopolies the possession
game at times and appeared to show
glimpses of gaining ascendency.
However, their desire to release the
ball by our defenders in haste brought
about inaccuracies galore and it meant
that we won the ball from the opposition
and returned it to them very often.
One superb shot by Andre Bouchard
left us in hope that more were in the
making and we began to start the count
Well, we were eventually seeing the
it was the Mexicans who were finding
out the our Keeper Jan Michel Williams
was up to the task, despite a porous
They failed to give adequate support
and allowed far too much space in and
around the penalty area for the Mexicans
to target keeper Williams for a rough
The official stats claimed that Mexico
shot twenty five times at our goal, eleven
of which Williams had to bring off some
Some of the experts described our
play as ugly but serving its purpose. I
humbly agree, and also wish to observe
that this unorthodox approach seemed
to unsettle the Olympic champions, and
forced them into error.
Sure they had a greater percentage of
possession, but had little by way of goals
to show for it until a badly placed defence
allowed what appeared to be a run of
the mill low right cross to slide guided
into the net from an angle which could
have been covered by a solitary defender,
far more three.
I conclude by saying the original deci-
sion to rearrange the players in the team
could well have been the main reason
for an absence of the chemistry which
brings success to good teams.
Our next step is even greater than
this one and the manner in which we
play our cards will determine whether
or not success is around the corner.
