NATIONAL footballers Keon Daniel and Keston Williams are both expecting a tough battle between Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica, in tomorrow’s friendly international at the Marvin Lee Stadium, Macoya.

Speaking ahead of yesterday’s training session at the Macoya venue, the pair noted that the game will be vital as Trinidad and Tobago prepare to compete in the Digicel Caribbean Cup later this year.

Daniel, who joined United Soccer League (USL) club Puerto Rico Islanders a few months ago, described his experience as “great”.

The 23-year-old midfielder continued, “the exposure has been different (as well as) the level of football.

I just come back here (to) do my best and hope that the guys do their best as well.”

He admitted that, “I came off an injury about two weeks ago, an abductor strain, but I’m okay now so I’m going to go out and do my best.” Williams, the team’s central defender, stated that, “I’m looking forward to playing against Jamaica.”

The 29-year-old Defence Force player noted, “everyone is excited, everyone is looking forward to this game because it have some guys who’ve never played against (Jamaica).”
