St. Kitts and Nevis Coach Zaiesha Joseph said the match was hard fought and she is proud of the efforts of the girls. “It was a very hard fought match indeed. At the end of the game, unfortunately the scores were 4-3 in favour of St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” she said. “Overall though I am extremely proud of the ladies as most of them have never played football before. We know our weaknesses and we will continue to work hard to address them. We have two matches to go and we hope for a better outcome of each. As I always say, our focus is on development of these players and ensuring that they understand the game,” Coach Joseph added.
