Daneil Cyrus is working round the clock to regain full fitness and force his way into the T&T start team for the CONCACAF Olympic qualifiers later this month in Carson, California.

Cyrus was sidelined by injury since last September and only returned to play a few weeks ago.

“I’m getting there. I’m maybe 85 percent there but I’m feeling better every match and I’m focusing on making sure I can contribute to the team’s cause in the competition,” Cyrus said.

“This training camp is helping me to get back to a good level. We’ve been able to train twice daily here and get some good match practice.

“The experience at Sporting Kansas also benefitted me a lot. It was hard work day in and day out. And it showed me that nothing comes easy.

Everything happens for a reason and although the club waived me, I see it as me getting an opportunity to show my worth with the national team in this tournament.

And at the end of the day, while we have some difficult opponents, all of us are training hard and it all comes down to what happens on the day. Everyone is like a family here… we live together and die together,” Cyrus said.
