A strong, if inconsistent, attacker, Collin Samuel is one of his country’s new generation ready to challenge the old guard.

His pace makes him an option on either flank, and he first impressed at Scottish club Falkirk in 2002 before moving north east to Dundee United the following season.

A regular for his country in their 2006 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying campaign, he was a squad member for both the 2002 and 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cups and a member of the U-20 national team in 2001.
