THE VALLEY, Anguilla– After reaching the 2017 Concacaf Gold Cup, French Guiana is hungry for another shot at the region’s best in the 2019 edition.
Les Yana Dokos kicked off their 2019/20 Concacaf Nations League Qualifying campaign with a solid 5-0 victory at Anguilla, which pushes French Guiana a step closer to a top 10 finish in the CNL and a berth in the 2019 Gold Cup.
After failing to make it out of the group stage at Gold Cup 2017, French Guiana is motivated to make a swift return.
“We would like to play the Gold Cup again,” said FW Alex Eric to Concacaf.com following the win in Anguilla.
“We are doing our best to make sure we get there,” added Alex.
Alex was one of five different goal-scorers on the evening for French Guiana, who is currently third in the 34-team table.
“It was a good start for me because I was able to score and help the team to win. It was a very positive start for us. I want to continue scoring in the matches to come,” said Alex.
Like many other teams around the region, French Guiana is pleased with Concacaf’s Nations League initiative as it provides a platform for the world to see the best of its football.
“The Nations League is a good competition. It gives us exposure to play versus other nations and gives us an opportunity to promote our country,” concluded Alex.
