One of the best local men in the CONCACAF tournament is James Sands, midfielder who was once praised by the Italian Andrea Pirlo and who has trained under the command of technicians such as Pep Guardiola, Ronny Deila Y parick scallop during his stay at the academy of Manchester City.
“I think one of the biggest advantages I got was coming from a place like New York. We tried to play in a similar style to the national team, building from behind, playing from midfield, creating chances, all these kinds of things. So I think with the coaches I had in New York, I felt like I had a good idea of what Gregg and the other coaches on the national team wanted. So I think that gave me a bit of an advantage. “, the defender also commented.
“I mean, I guess it’s come as a surprise to a lot of people. But it’s not a surprise to me that I’m playing this way. I’ve done it for a couple of years with New York and I’ve been pretty consistent about it. With the national team. national, I’ve had some unfortunate injuries, the timing wasn’t always right so I haven’t been able to prove it. But I think the things I’ve been doing these last two games are things I’ve done before so I feel pretty confident in the future. And then it’s about doing the same things and not trying to change my game. There are certain things that I’m good at: clean passing, clean touches, being good defensively. It will be important, especially in the knockout rounds, to keep going. doing those things, not trying to be something I’m not “he added.
The footballer of New York City FC debuted with the senior team during the game against Haiti, something that marked his career for now, being key to achieving the leadership of Group B, something that the coach likes Berhalter.
“I liked his game today (against Martinique). I thought it was excellent. He fought, he competed, his passing was excellent. So he gives us an option. You don’t always have the opportunity to play three back, but he gives you that option, without No doubt. Very proud of James, proud of the way he has performed in both games. “, shared DT.
“I think my style is unique, in the sense that I can do that role of three defenders quite well, I can play as a solo ‘6’ quite well, and with New York, I started playing as center back when we’re in a back room. I always thought I was on the right track. I have good people around me, good coaches, my family always supports me. So I always felt that if I stayed the course, my opportunity would come eventually, and when that opportunity did come, I would have to seize it. And I think that’s what I’ve done in this tournament. “Sands finished.
After the defeat of the Jamaicans against Costa Rica on the last day of the Group Stage, the coach Theodore Whitmore affirmed that his players had a good commitment, ensuring that they must be given merits and warns that in September they will play with more hunger at the start of the CONCACAF Qualifiers heading to Mundial Qatar 20222, precisely next September 7.

The two countries will show more hunger, so it is difficult to reference the two games, because qualifying for the World Cup is a war between countries because everyone wants to go to the World Cup in 2022. It will be a very different match. We cannot take it away, what the FIFA ranking says, but we must give respect to Costa Rica because they have been doing things well, for many years. But at the end of the day, if you see the performance tonight by the Jamaican players, you have to give the team credit as well. “, he indicated.
