SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic – A tough test awaits the Dominican Republic on Tuesday, as they take on Montserrat in Group B of League B in the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League at the Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
The hosts arrive into the contest on the back of a resounding 3-0 win over Saint Lucia and are tied on points with group leaders El Salvador.
But in front is a Montserrat side that came back from a one-goal deficit to top the Dominican Republic 2-1 on matchday one.
The Dominican Republic boast a number of players who can do damage, evidenced by the fact that their five goals scored in the CNL have been from five different players.
Montserrat fell 2-0 to El Salvador in their previous outing and are third place with four points. However, with a win on Tuesday the Emerald Boys can jump right back into the promotion discussion.
Even though it came in a losing effort, MF James Comley was excellent for Montserrat against the Cuscatlecos, with 26 completed passes and two ball recoveries.
His energy will be a key if the visitors are to emerge with all three points.
