MIAMI.- With every match in 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Qualifying, Grenada improved as a team.
It was a rough start for the Spice Boys, with a 10-0 to Curacao in week one. But since that result, Grenada have been one of the best performing sides in the Caribbean, which will no doubt bolster their hopes of promotion from League B.
Following the Curacao loss, Grenada narrowly fell 2-0 at home to a Cuba side that poured in 15 goals in CNLQ.
The last two matches of CNLQ saw Grenada at their best on the football field, with a 5-2 win over Saint Martin and 2-0 victory at Puerto Rico.
The balance of a firing attack along with an improved, sturdy defense has Grenada set up nicely to take on French Guiana, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Belize in Group A.
23-year-old Jamal Chares is the danger man for the Spice Boys and is capable of setting the table for teammates to score, or can go at goal himself, evidenced by his two goals in CNLQ.
The versatile A.J. Paterson is also a player that will concern opposing defenses. The 23-year-old can play either as a defender or midfielder and has a nose for goal, with a brace in last November’s win over Saint Martin.
Riding a two-match winning streak in competitive matches, Grenada will seek that continue that form in League B.
