Kittitians and Nevisians are in for quite a football treat as team St. Kitts- Nevis come up against team Antigua-Barbuda. The game kicks off at the Warner Park Football Stadium at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday 3rd March.
The 21(twenty-one) man squad has been chosen to represent the island, namely:
Team Antigua & Barbuda is ranked ninety (90) in the FIFA/Coca Cola World Ranking while St. Kitts- Nevis is ranked one hundred and seventeen (117). In the event that the Sugar Boys are able to conquer the “Benna Boys”, team SKN’s FIFA/Coca Cola ranking will improve. All are invited to come on out and support the Sugar Boys in their quest for a rank under 100. The last time the St. Kitts-Nevis national team played against the Antigua-Barbuda national team was in August 2010, where the outcome was a 1-1 draw.
In their last tournament, the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers, the Sugar Boys played a total of six (6) matches, of which they only lost one (1) to Canada, currently ranked seventy-one (71). Team Antigua & Barbuda advanced to the second round of 2014 World Cup Qualifiers after they finished top of the tables in the first leg. The question remains, can the Sugar Boys defeat the Benna Boys and earn themselves a better spot in the FIFA/Coca Cola Ranking?
